your name, your identity, everything,

just enjoying how beautiful
just sitting doing nothing is,
how relaxing, how restful.
- Osho

As the witnessing deepens,
you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy.

right this moment to pause long enough to truly notice you."

to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,

for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."

a time for repose and contemplation.

and the physical occurrences of those events.

any role in any of the events of my life
is entirely without fault.

I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.
