cessation

stop thinking
because thoughts never did help anyone.
at times we just need to feel,
do things intuitively
going with the flow;
not reason it out
or fight it out.

as fighting only leads to
inner conflicts which do not resolve
despite best efforts.

but then what’s life
if we do not face it
squarely and bravely
even though our mind rejects.

Gautami...so true. Like the sun in a perfectly clear sky. Hope you are well. Been scarce because of so much work and other things demanding my attention. Blessings.

If it's never faced, you never get over it. It's no fun, though, to do it- :)
Nice work!

There is a time for everything under the sun - a time for thinking and a time for feeling.

Welcome Tim. I know there is time for everything. But we human beings do not see it. We are always in a hurry.
