Don’t Go Away. Stay Tuned.



“The quieter you become the more you can hear.”
Ram Dass


Sit awhile.

Put down what you are carrying. If you are not going anywhere, why carry baggage?


Be quiet. Nobody is listening right now, so why talk? If you are not going to talk, why pursue those talky thoughts?

Nobody is going to do anything for the next little while, so your mind can stop giving commands.

You are never going to pass this way again; you are never going to live this moment again, so pay attention.

You must breathe, so breathe.

If you are not going to do anything, do it well. Sit like you mean it.

Listen, watch, feel, sit, breathe.

Your mind may wander off, but you need it here with you now. Call it back.

Sit. Breathe. Be.
