This is a poem about rest right in the middle of the unknown. It’s about that one moment that captures everything — life and death, truth and mystery, past and future. As you’re reading this poem about eternity, feel the peace and the power of the whole universe coming to meet you, right where you are.
Since it’s the middle of winter in my corner of the world, I thought a poem with a touch of sunshine in it would be warmly welcomed.
A Poem about Eternity
Like a friend blossoms when they are heard,
so does nature long for your presence.
The trees crave your undivided attention —
The winds the pleasure of being felt.
Give the water your body of being.
Immerse yourself in essence.
Check the pulse of the universe.
Go deeper, further
Hold a magnifying glass to the
Soul of the world.
Go beyond the world, with walls and windows.
Go to your edges.
Relax and rest into it, to
Go deeper into this heartbeat, somehow
Beyond what you know: here, souls meet.
You are not brought down by
What you don’t know.
You are enlightened by knowing, calmly,
That you do not know.
Choose the serenity of the gap
between your thoughts.
Know that you have entered, have opened the
Unlocked door to peace.
In sweeping landscapes of evergreen,
Or the blurred blue line separating Earth
From Sea, may you contemplate
The horizon where every moment
Meets: resting for a breath of
— One moment for everything

What helps you feel connected and supported by life (all of it) after, or even during, hardship? In other words, what reminds you that you’re okay?
Share this poem about eternity with a friend who gets it, or deserves a little more light right now.
Your willingness to be fully here in this one moment, open to more than you know, is brave.
