“My goal is not that America will become a perfect nation.
“My goal is that America will be a kinder, more compassionate nation,
because I know down deep in my heart
that we are a kinder,
more compassionate country
than is evident today.
Reviving our compassionate spirit
will allow us to listen carefully to each other,
find points of agreement,
the unity of purpose
that made America great.”
In the journey of the breath, I find myself standing
in the conviction of the ancestors,
Jesus Christ, Buddha, Gandhi, King, Harriet,
Sojourner, Mohammed, Yogananda Paramahansa.
I realize we are one with
all things, all beings, all truth,
including one another.
Mindfulness liberates your story and mine,
until they are new and fresh
and celebrate the strength of simply being one
with here and now,
and nothing else.
By breathing in, we realize that we are.
By breathing out, we know that
I am here for you, and you are here for me.
By breathing in, we remember
that we are one with each breath.
By breathing out, we accept the power
of this moment, where we can simply be.
By breathing in, we forgive.
By breathing out, we forget.
Mindfulness is the altar at which
we bring our worries and let them rest
until they fade away.
