Better place (Meditation)


We take elevator
to better place
to envision a dream…
heart slides down
to first floor
thin
incision
on memory…
threshold
after those
3 steps
breathtaking
cold
upbeat code
to enter the show
open the door…
soft sofa
screen on the wall…
……

the art of
reaching the heaven,
touching beyond…
faraway voice
count to 10…
should we return…

  1. Sometimes the elevator is so slow (like in trying to type or search for something on a smart phone internet connection)... but if it is in free fall we are weightless... so many poems on level or file 13 lost in the basement... I am still learning to count to ten while life blinks by taking forever.

    Just keeping in touch :-)

  3. pretty cool...i wish getting to that place was as easy as pushing a button and riding to it....sometimes it takes me a bit of effort to get to that place in my meditation....and once there...it is not always easy to come back...or want to...smiles.

  7. The elevator metaphor, the art show, fast and slow and count to 10 too (if I return) expresses for me the hide and seek scurry for space, and the need to slide along the matrix for a taste of meditation's rest. Which needs practice, moving on up or down, however you see that.

  8. Good question! Sometimes one does not WANT to return!! Thoughtful write.

  9. A real sense of arriving into a haven of peace and security, away from all else.

  13. After touching heaven and to be sure counting to ten gives one a respite whether to return or not. No, stay on in heavenly bliss certainly! Nice thoughts humbird!
