Joy of Being

Sometimes just sitting still

and doing nothing,

wanting nothing,

thinking nothing –

can open the door

to the joy of being.

Just observing

the leaves swaying in the wind.

Just hearing

the kids’ laughter.

Just breathing deeply

and feeling the body relax:

Moments of deep joy,

the joy of just “being”.

Being refreshed.

Being connected.

Being grounded.

Sometimes just sitting still

holds surprising joy.
