Off The Mat

Take the meditation off the mat or cushion
For every moment is an opportunity
To be right here
To recognize the right now.
Feel the breeze flowing over your body
Sun rays penetrating your skin
See the bright penny laying in the dirt
The puffy clouds floating overhead
Feel your body in the seat
Hands upon the wheel
Listen to the crickets chirping in the heat
Recognize the laughter of nearby children singing songs.

Again and again
Remind yourself
This is what I am doing right here and now
Breathing, being, one with all.
