10. Slowing Down to the Speed of Life
Diego F. Palomino 01/27/05

In Gassho to Sensei William Briones and Amida Buddh

 
 

The challenge is the process,
Never one event related
Mindfulness the practice,
The wisdom cultivated

Thoughts and words and actions
Committed to awareness,
Existence, body, feelings,
The process we must harness

Queuing down,
Winding down,
Slowing down,
To the speed of life

Rushing through the seconds,
The minutes and the hours,
Not savoring the moment,
Of life that's really ours

Forging through the forest
Event beyond events
Longing for the future,
Hanging in the past

Avoidant, non-indulgent
Of a life void of despair
Thwarting of the promise,
The practice to be there

Queuing down,
Winding down,
Slowing down,
To the speed of life
