It all boils down to
plain and simply
considering the possibility
of living life
Open to the aliveness at each moment
whatever that may be
No big deal really
curtains moving in the wind
a creaking windmill
a throbbing toe where the nail has come loose
a tiny spider on the mosquitoes screen
sounds, sights, sensations
Everything simply perceived
as it is.

We hear This,
so many times.
1000 ds of times.
Why does it not hit the mark
and relieve us of our suffering?
Why does it not help us to
reach our goal;
unending happiness and freedom?
We want to get rid of something
or we want to acquire something, isn't it?,
In our haste of freeing ourselves,
or trying to get something or somewhere,
we overlook the fact that we might
not hear this message properly.
How do we understand?
With which eyes do we see?
Are the portals of perception
free of ideas and beliefs?
Is there a possibility to receive
this message unfiltered?
Raw and alive?
Or do we hear these words endlessly
through the dead echoes
of the past?
Could this be blocking the clear view?
