Sit Perfectly Still

Sit Perfectly Still


Just sit.

In a chair.

Back straight.

Palms on lap facing up.


Just sit.

Sit with your thoughts.

Watch them come and go.

Like the clouds.

Like a leaf which just fell into a stream.

Thoughts will always come.

Restful thoughts.

Stressful thoughts.

Tranquil thoughts.

Agitated thoughts.

Space between thoughts.

Racing thoughts.


Just sit.

Be able to sit in the world around you.

Just how the world is.

Just how the world isn't.

Just how you are.

Just how you're not.

You're not perfect.

But you can sit perfectly still.
