Found Poem: Cultivating Kindness

Posted on June 30, 2020


How will we be in relationship

to whatever is arising?

Here is freedom:

awareness, intention, resolve

to experiment with







Bring gentleness and kindness

to the process,

again, again.


Be at peace with what is.

This is it:

a gentle healing discipline,

a radical act of love.

A disciple’s awareness:

life is the meditation,

the practice,

the teacher.


The curriculum is the moment.
