Waiting

I sat on his couch and waited,
For conversation?
A spark of joy?
I wasn't really sure,
I just wanted it to be something.

It made me realise how much of each day
Is spent in anticipation.
It could be as simple as waiting for home time;
The phone to ring;
A message to come through;
A smile;
A hint of our own importance.

But at times like these when i am waiting,
I realise the beauty of the act
Is in the waiting and the acceptance of the moment.
Seemingly devoid of reward.
This is where the answer lay

The biggest challenge is being in that position.
Sometimes we are forced into it.
Better though to pursue it
But this requires the path less travelled,
Seemingly overgrown with less than attractive stuff.

Easier to follow the sun, the sand, the surf, the ego.
Rewards are immediate though fleeting and much less transformative.

Being there, now,
Connecting sometimes uncomfortably,
Is the treasured space, the meaningful answer.

We believe in service to humanity is an integral part of what it mean to be human. Serving with humility and grace. We offer support for people in need. We also offer international support for the disabled. We rely solely on private funding to achieve our work. Please feel free to explore this web site to find out more.

An important part of maximising our day to ensure we are of service, is to be aware that we we are maximising our time in the present moment, which means not focusing on the future or the past. To help us achieve this we use the techniques of Mindfulness and Contemplation. Many of the posts and information on this web site relate to being more present in the "now" through Mindfulness and other Meditative techniques. To further this we offer training in Mindfulness and also the recognised therapeutical tool of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

Thank you.
