IS THIS MY WORLD

In POETRY by Frans Stiene1 Comment

I look around me and ask myself; is this my world

Greed, destruction, wars, gossip

I look around me and ask myself; is this my world

Beauty, nature, laughter, love

I look around me and ask myself; is this my world

Animal slaughter, hatred, abuse

I look around me and ask myself; is this my world

Joy, compassion, caring

I look around myself and ask myself; is this my world

How can I change my world so that I just see love

How can I change my world so that I just see peace

How can I change my world so that I just see kindness

How can I change my world

It is time to let go of my current world of destruction

It is time to let go of my current world of fear

It is time to let go of my current world of just me, me, me

It is time to just Be

Be in my world

My world of peace

I love travel, teaching and writing, and have been teaching meditation internationally for over seventeen years. I am passionate about studying Japanese esoteric Buddhist teachings like Shingon, Tendai, and Shugendo, and then teaching them from a less strict viewpoint so that we all can benefit from these wonderful teachings. My main focus is helping people to remember their own true identity, because it is only through remembering this that we can start to create a world full of compassion and wisdom. My website.

    This is a beautiful poem. And I contemplated on it. It is not about outer world of hatred or joy but more deeper inside of us of our ” so called good and so called bad” . Both wanting to win over each , causing constant struggle. We loosing peace within.As there always a fight of these two aspects of ourselves within. Hence than one aspect which is lost is suffering…

    Harmonizing between these ” so called good and so called bad” aspects, making them friends is the way for inner peace. As than there is no struggle , to win. No suffering.
    Just acceptance ….

    And that is ” Just Be”.

    Thank you
