The Silence Between the Birds

The Silence Between the Birds

Watch your thoughts closely

From where did they come
The ego and the mind
Working together as one

This isn’t who we are
Or what we should believe                       The negative thoughts                                 The ego wanting to deceive
Step back for one moment                      And watch them from afar
See the pain and fear dissolve               Those thoughts not who we are

For we are infinite beings
Find stillness from within
The mind stops us from seeing
It can change the world we’re in            We are not our thoughts
Nor are we formed                                   From the ego and the mind
Our reality is torn                                  Watch the thoughts that come
And recognize why they are there
But be aware, they’re ego born               For your life they do not care

But once you see them for all they are They have no power over you
Watch them come and watch them go   With practice they’ll come few

You’re waking up now to beauty              To the things you’ve never heard               The waterfall, the mountains
The silence between the birds

This article is not affiliated with the Gaff Blog or what we typically write about but I wanted to share in honor of Madison Holleran.

Don’t let the pressure of looking perfect and cool take you away from the people and things you love. If you do not have anyone to talk to the least you have is yourself. Do not give that up. Fight the fight for you.

Depression is not a laughing matter.
