To Remind Ourselves What Is Real

In a world ravaged by violence, by hatred,
by conflicts that seem eternal and insoluble,
sometimes the only thinbg we can do
is be still for a moment
to remind ourselves what is real:
the sun that rose this morning,
the dirt under our feet,
the air whispering in and out of our lungs.
This hour, try just to be present in each moment as it unfolds.
Your simple attention is what makes these moments holy.
