The Serenity Within You

Seek to empty your mind of all thoughts
Allow your heart be at peace, rest your soul
Watch the boiling turmoil of the life around you
Contemplate their final return, their peace yet ahead

See the beginnings of all live in the universe
Observe the circle of the return to common origin
The returning to origin as the long sought serenity

In not realizing the origin, you stumble in confusion and sorrow
In the knowing you become tolerant, disinterested, amused

Kindly as a grandmother, dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the source, you cope
Dealing easily with whatever life brings you
And at the end, when death comes, you are ready

Walking the path of your own circle
Returning to the origin of your beginning
Rejoining to once more become a part of the whole

This, the journey of the great circle
Small steps leading to the serenity of the one

The serenity within you…

Steve ‘Easy’ Whitacre Sept. 17th 2008

One thought on “The Serenity Within You

  1. In humbly bow to majesty
    that glows in self so strong
    yet unseen but to be along
    with peace of mind to see

    all thoughts asleep, not spreading wide
    to make their show again
    eyes closed in peace, not though be blind
    to see what need to gain
