Insights from a Day of Mindfulness

I wrote this poem while on a Day of Mindfulness Tampa Bay (my first):

emptying my mind of unhealthy attachments is my freedom from bondage.

"False evidence appearing real."

Good dharma, bad karma, I will see beyond duality.

Savoring the silence, embracing the stillness but holding nothing back.

I let go of my expectations and judgements of everything and everyone.

Breathing in, I call my body,

breathing out, I smile.

When the mind wanders I

simply call my attention

back to my breath.
