Living in the moment

samprules2

Started a new set of prompts – I love lists of things – this one will prove to be endlessly productive for another couple of years – 227 Rules For Monks. Who knew the simple life could be so complex. These are from the 30 nissaggiyas – this is 23rd.

Living in the moment

I’m feeling fine

no I am fine

feel is a word of uncertainty

because feelings can be deceiving

feels like winter

doesn’t mean it is winter

I am fine

I am well

 

no I don’t need to take another dose

not even one

just in case

I’m not as well

as I think I am

 

think

that’s another word of uncertainty

doubt

it’s as if what I think

maybe wrong

that the perspective I filter

things through

can be questioned

 

think isn’t the same as knowledge

I think it’s raining

it feels like rain

either it’s rain or it isn’t

thinking won’t change that

 

I think I feel better

 

I’m better off when I don’t think

when I am in the moment

I am well

better gives a sense

that once upon a time

I wasn’t well

that I wasn’t living in the moment

if I wasn’t

I am now
