always stay present in the eye of the storm

Buddha Quote 92
Picture kindly provided by h.koppdelaney


when hearts break and nothing seems to be going right,
there is power in staying in the moment
without retaliation, without anger, without reaction
move towards the eye of the storm, stay present there,
rather than running away from it or fighting it
for in the eye of the storm,
nothing can hurt you
like the calm in the center of the storm,
there is calm in the center of your being
let these two merge

in this calmness, you can truly observe what is going on,
and penetrate the heart of it, with your awareness, with your presence
without being entangled in the storm itself

the storms are but to be expected,
for this is the nature of the world and the play of karma
but to survive the storms,
always stay present in the eye of the storm
