Peace is This Moment Without Judgment (excerpt from full poem)
Peace is this moment without judgment.
That is all. This moment in the Heart-space
where everything that is is welcome.
Peace is this moment without thinking
that it should be some other way,
that you should feel some other thing,
that your life should unfold according to your plans.
Peace is this moment without judgement,
this moment in the heart-space where
everything that is is welcome.
