The day was getting tired.
As I was about to walk towards my porch, I suddenly heard how the rose whispered: “You cannot go away and leave me alone. As the stream of time takes everything with it, it does not distinct between the trash and the treasure.
Everything flows away with it, so does the beauty, so does the ugliness of our despair.”
“I will return another day, just keep blossoming. My patience is short today and my pain takes me to a deep valley of suffering,” I said more to myself, but I had to experience this sad monologue:
“One day long, or one life long: the flow of time knows no difference. It is a glimpse; it is a short while for it whether you value that moment or not.
Stay with me, you cannot leave me alone.
The beauty has the shortest of lifespans. I have only this small moment from all the eternity. It will never come back.
Stay with me, you cannot go away and leave me alone.
The other day has other worries; there is never enough time for the beauty to blossom. There is always enough time to suffer, to cry and to despair.
So, won’t you leave me alone?” she asked fearfully.
“No, I won’t. I will make some time, I will stay with you.
Nothing ever returns, and it only leaves us. I have to make time for you. There is only this one moment from all the eternity. I will not go and leave you alone. I will make the time stop, although, it will last only a few hours.”
Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience. Author: https://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/mindfulness
