Calm Amidst the Storm

Let not the outer turbulence
Become the inner turbulence
But instead search for the stillness
Deep inside the heart
Way beyond all external phenomena
It is there always
Yet when the storm rages
We are sucked in and forget the truth

You are not the raging storm my friend
You are the peace inside the storm
The stillness at the center of the movement

You are not just the phenomena
You are that out of which phenomena arises

Your peace, stillness and equanimity
Are the most valuable gift
You can offer the world now.
