Reassuring to sit in meditation and have
the lens of your mind clear
Not that it happens every time
But today Clarity stepped out
and showed Distraction to the door
Have you met Distraction?
A rather jumpy character she is,
not wanting to settle in one place
or stay quiet for very long
She also gives more energy to some
rather than others, making them seem
more serious or dangerous or true
When they are not
But when the rush of life is carrying you
it’s so tempting not to pause and really
look at what Distraction is offering
Clarity on the other hand is like
the knife that cuts down to the core,
exposing what one’s true intention
She shows you the simplicity of it all,
making it possible for you to simply
rest in what is
Clarity doesn’t give you the answers –
just the focus you need to find them.
