“The world is reborn every moment
rising out of nothing like a miracle
newly created, fresh, unnamed,
gleaming with strange beauty.
A world without time, untouched by thought,
not yet carved or labeled
or neutered by concepts or categories –
just raw unfiltered is-ness.
It’s only our minds that make the world old
adding on our habits and memories
attaching our stale assumptions –
until time itself is tired
and each day sags with boredom.
But in the rebirth of the world, we’re reborn too –
every moment is a new beginning
an amnesty from the past
a chance to re-create ourselves
to shake ourselves free of limitations
and explore this bright new world.
