Settle in the Here and Now

Settle in the here and now.
Reach down into the centre
where the world is not spinning
and drink this holy peace.

Feel relief flood into every cell.
Nothing to do.
Nothing to be
but what you are already.
Nothing to receive
but what flows effortlessly
from the mystery into form.
Nothing to run from or run toward.

Just this breath,
Awareness
Knowing itself as embodiment.
Just this breath,
Awareness
Waking up to truth.
