quietening the mind

The stillness of a moment
Of just being.
Breathing into inner silence
Without the incessant chatter of my mind
(judging, approving, and constantly narrating);
Seeing what is around and within me without need to hold onto, change, react to or filter it.

Peace sits within my heart
(so deeply familiar, yet it became so rare) –
Accepting what is
Without demand or expectation;
Noticing the absence of edgy dissatisfaction
or desire for distraction.

Knowing without thinking that all I require for happiness
sits gently within my heart
       (as it did all along)
Waiting for me to pause in my searching
And
(quite simply)
be.
