Was Nietzsche Right? - 15oct21
Nietzsche was right,
there is a void,
a collection of ugliness, cruelty,
resentment, fear, and despair.
But what are we to do?
Shall we avert our gaze,
pretend everything is alright,
and undermine our mindfulness?
Shall we allow the contents of the void
to build to a critical mass
that crushes our love and peace?
Is toxic positivity the only alternative?
As Yoda said to Obi Wan Kenobi,
“There is another.”
As we breathe in
we can perceive all that life throws at us,
and as we breathe out
we could physically relax
and thus mentally release.
This is the union
of mindfulness and meditation.
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
