Bear the Unbearable in Stillness

Bear the unbearable feelings
The tortuous emotions
The primal anger
And the deep knots of fear
Without doing anything
Make no attempt to fix or change
No movement away from or towards
Don’t do anything
Just be there

There is a great art in being
It comes from deep within
And has its roots in silence
Everyone can discover it
It is not a special state
It is a natural state

The first step is to develop a great willingness
To simply be, even as the noise resounds
And to fall into an ever deeper stillness
Stillness lets everything be as it is
And there is its unique power
Just letting everything be as it is
The acceptance of things that have been
And things to come
Without the mind’s need to fix or change

What incredible power we have
Hidden from ourselves by mind’s tenacious grip on us.
