“Stay Calm, my Sun”

 If I pause for a moment,
To dwell on your word,
I‘d listen more deeply,
And you could be heard.

We can’t keep on running,
This un-mindful pace,
We’re so disconnected,
It’s all over your face.
Let’s hit the pause button,
We know where it’s at,
It’s in between ears,
And beneath your big hat.
If we both pause together,
Then we won’t pull apart,
Then we both listen better,
As we hear with our heart.
We can both listen deeply,
With a mindfulness cause,
Take a breath – then another,
With a button called…

Pause.

 

Okay, take a breath! And another…. I’ve been taking this great class on mindfulness from Megan Leuchars and Christy Cassisa with UCSD Center for Mindfulness. It’s been a lot of meditating and a little yoga and a lot of shutting up and listening! Sometimes all we need to do is hit the pause button and our entire life can change.

You might want to check out this course in San Diego. Here’s the link. Even if you don’t live around here you can play their 10, 20 and 40 minute meditations and body scans right here:
