Reader comment on David Whyte's passage ...

Time is a Season


On Nov 15, 2015 Jagdish P Dave wrote:

 We bind ourselves by closing ourselves to the ever flowing river of time.When my mind is fully present in the moment, I feel the touch of the ever flowing time. I am in the flow of time fully immersed in it.The water of time is flowing and I am flowing in the water, with the water. I am blessed to have such flowing time when I listen to music, take a walk in nature, meditate, and place my self in the loving hands of people who are fully present in the moment.There is fullness in such timelessness. I describe it as the being zone, a zone of doing nothing but just being.Such being zone is described in this beautiful poem:

Sitting by the river
doing nothing,
spring comes 
the grass grows by itself.

Another poem captures it in the following words:

Ten thousand flowers in spring,
the moon in the autumn,
a cool breeze in summer,
snow in winter,
if your mind is not clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.-Wu Men

May we all learn the art of living in the present that gives birth to newness in the womb of now-ness!
