Purpose and Meaning

Purpose and meaning
Of equal value
But in our world
The balance is askew

For purpose, is doing
Control in our hands
For us to accomplish
That of our plans

But meaning is deeper
Us to be aware
The gift of receiving
What’s blessed to us here

We see in a child
This curiosity
To be in the moment
Absorbed, totally

Let’s focus on meaning
A practice this day
We’ll find we are living
In a greater way

(Based upon “The Way of Silence”)
