Cliff's (just sitting) Meditation


Sitting calmly with chaotic thinking
aware of breathing, sensations, and emptiness
flexible open heart and flapping mind, wondering
What is that that is, and of that what am I?

Emptiness pervades sensations and boundaries,
painful muscle/bone knots obscures flowing energy.
Wishless, notionless clear-mind background
permeates "me", cushions, and space.

Accepting and forgiving being,
meeting what is real and vital in this moment,
aware, alert, singular, torn, and/or distracted.
Is "I" an idea, a sense of "my" vs other?

Dropping off thinking, ideas, and notions
Simply being sitting, without boundaries
Aware of heritage and embodiment
Neither disavowing nor affirming.
