bearing witness

August 23, 2016

an aha moment today

that this is my role

in life

to bear witness

to myself

in all that is occurring

and still witness

where I am

and all that is around me

it is a mighty task

but one that I have embraced

in a land where many people

don’t witness themselves

or much else

beyond their noses

I don’t understand

I read a book awhile back

called bearing witness

by Bernie glassman

it was a story of his journey

traveling and bearing witness

as a group experience

as a so called zen experience

I guess I liked it

because I still have a copy

unlike others I have read

I don’t understand why people

make pilgrimages

to bear witness

when the similar

is all around

this maybe

for me an unanswered question

in life

not too concerned about it

 

peace
