The Way It Is by Lynn Ungar

The Way It Is by Lynn Ungar

This poem speaks about one of the fruits of mindfulness practice: the grace and quiet joy that can come with radical acceptance. And of how this is often a gradual shift, almost unnoticed until reading back a journal from a few years ago, or speaking with a friend you’ve lost touch with for a while. And suddenly you notice: I’m not so hard on myself as I used to be, or: there is more spaciousness in my day to day life even though I still do all these things that are important to me, or: I move through my life with more joy in my heart.

To enjoy these meditation poems, find a quiet spot, sit in a comfortable position and notice your in and out breath. Read each poem slowly so the image sinks in. Close your eyes, and say silently to yourself the key words for each in-breath and out-breath. Smile and enjoy!
