Two perspectives

The mind runs wild
telling stories
getting carried away.

The heart simply
reflects what is.

The mind imagines
the worst
creates fearful scenarios.

The heart gently smiles
words of encouragement.

The mind eloquently creates
disasters that never happen.

The heart soothes the fear
calms the nerves.

The mind is weighted down
with sadness, sorrows, grief.

The heart embraces all emotions
touches the dimension of
no coming, no going,
no birth, no death.

The heart does not dismiss
changing emotions
holds them lightly
sees them as insubstantial
as shifting air.

The heart shines out with
contentment, happiness, gratitude.

Listen to the heart.
