A State of Grace

Source of Inspiration

birds21

Why do I prefer
this over that
knowing
the impermanence of all
objects of desire?

Too many hours working
racing here and there
wanting
getting
wanting more
never content for long

Is momentary elation
followed by fall into despair
our lot
our life
doomed to be
bewildered beasts?

No, it does not
have to be this way.
We can be space
through which smoke
passes yet does not touch
not through indifference
but rather with the detachment
of one who observes
life’s illusions
knowing them for what they are
lessons
enacted
impermanent yet necessary
to enable us to move
into a state of grace
