The Power of a Moment
Enjoy a sacred pause today with the poetry of Dane Anthony. found on the website, www.gratefulness.org
by Dane Anthony
Stop moving. Stand in one place – this place. Breathe slowly; in, then out. Repeat.
Repeat again. Let your shoulders sink and relax. Unclench your jaw; slowly close your eyes.
Listen for your heartbeat; really listen. Feel it pulse in your fingertips.
Lessen expectations. Under-do all your efforts. Requisition the time for your soul
to catch up. Lean into the wind; feel it like a tree and test the ground.
Learn to trust the resilience. It would be treason to move quickly – left or right –
from this place. It is alright to be exactly what you are, who you are, where you are. Right here, right now.
