Can I just sit here? In this open field... watching the ballet of butterflies doing the joyous dance of non-attachment? Can I just sit here? In this quiet room.. all aglow with the candle's warmth and vanish in all denial of all things electronic? Can I just sit here? Next to this blue lake? And learn it's valuable secrets of stillness and motion? Smooth surface but swift undercurrent... Like waves created from one tiny leaf... Can I just sit here... in the cool green backwoods... to learn the lessons of unity and diversity in the midst of a multitude of creatures...? Can I just sit here.... without appointments, and expectations, without the pressure of counting and anticipating every single minute....? Can I just sit here... To align with a solitude Of my own design?
