Let the mind be the mind - A poem from Danna Faulds

I came across with Danna's work while I was in a retreat in Bali. Her words full of beauty caught my attention from the first moment and after that I went online and bought all of her books.


Today I would like to share with you one of her poems, one that invites us to choose to engage with peace and let the mind do its thing. We always can choose to engage with the mind or with something more deep than the constant chattering. You choose, you always can.



LET THE MIND BE THE MIND by DANNA FAULDS

Let the mind be the mind.

Behind its restless activity,

just one layer deeper

is stillness, and beneath

even that, is an ocean of mystery and truth.


Swim in this eternal sea

until you know yourself

to be infinity, and bring

that knowing back into your day.

Why struggle to be what you are already?


Let the mind be the mind,

but don't bind yourself

to its limited reality.

Trust your experience of vastness.

Trust the truth that never loses potency

or disappears in fear.


Let the mind be the mind and identify not

with thought, but silence.
