Meditation and What is Realized

By , Oberlin, OH
Meditation, Part I: Awareness and Feeling the Unfelt

More aware,
more mindful
of the world.
Things you hardly ever think about
suddenly there.
You notice the unnoticed.
The way breathing feels.
Your clothes touching
your skin.
Your feet hitting the ground as
you walk.
A breeze kissing your body.
All, now so real
though it was always there.

Meditation, Part II: Hearing the Unheard

Hearing the unheard.
Hearing every sound
that courses through your eardrum.
Notice sounds.
Wind rushing,
ruffling the leaves of trees.
The distant sounds of
passing cars.
Songs of birds.
Hear the unheard and
unnoticed.


Meditation, Part III: Hearing Silence?

Hear the silence.
Hear how
silence sounds.
No sound.
Or is there?
Is there
the sound of
no sound?
How does
no sound
sound?
Find or
don’t find
no sound
in silence.

Meditation, Part IV: Think How It Feels to Think a Thought

Go in
your mind.
Let your
mind’s hand
reach
for a thought.
Any thought.
A
random thought
flitting like
a butterfly
in your mind’s
world, universe.
Feel how it feels
to reach for the thought.
Or does it
feel?
How does it feel
to feel?
How does it feel
to not feel
any kind of feeling?
Feel a feeling
or
nonfeeling thought.
Reach for it
and
feel.

Meditation, Part V: Peace?

How peace?
How can you
relax
while
thinking about all this?
Thinking
and noticing
so much.
Aware
of so much.
Where,
how,
peace?
Peace?




Meditation, Part VI: Loosened Fist

Being
aware brings
peace
to the mind.
The mental
fist that grabs and
holds on though
it slowly
loosens
its
iron hold
and
lets other thoughts
slip
lazily through
its
now,
loose hold.
Thoughts are
peace.
The fist
loosened.

Meditation, Part VII: To Meditate

Awareness
is
peace.
Hearing
is
seeing
without eyes.
Seeing
is
hearing
with no
ears.
Feeling
is
a mind
of its own.
Peace.
Awareness.
Sensation.
Meditation.
