We are afraid to let go of old habits
Because it might turn us into nothing
NOTHING is louder than all claims
NOTHING is saying I AM
It is saying Different
NOTHING is contrary to claiming
Yet,it is the strongest one…
It is BEING.
NOTHING is the strongest of claims

I love it. Theodore Roethke (the poet) once said, “Being, not doing, is my first love.” She is mine too.
You introduced me to a poet unknown to me…Being is indeed very hard to achieve as there are every second thoughts pouring in & accelerating us into the future but I try to cultivate the philosophy of being in the moment & appreciating the greatness of simply being truly present in this world.
I must admit I’m still at my first steps but it’s a start…
Thanks for commenting.
What a gorgeous picture. It looks almost dreamlike.
Thanks! I appreciate your kind words as this photo was quite a discovery for me in photography… As I was taking it the sun shone straight into the lens & gave a nearly blank screen which mesmerized me so I played around with the position of my camera & captured a few photos each one with a different level of intensity or vagueness which gave that dreamlike impression you are talking about 🙂
Once we let go we realise just how Great the IAM is .. Lovely verse and magical photo xox
Thanks for these kind words! They just popped out of my head at night… the quiet invites easily to inspiration.
It is easier to think clearly then, the words practically reveal themselves to the quietude, all is properly absorbed & we wonder how it’s possible not to have thought of it before 🙂
Very nice verse. So hard to let go though.
I can’t agree more! It is what I find the hardest. I try from time to time to apply it & it feels very peaceful when I succeed.
I’m nevertheless at my baby steps but that’s how everything begins 🙂
Thanks for visiting liking following & commenting! It is very much appreciated 🙂
