The Big Ice Cream Cone in the Sky!!!

January 17, 2011

 

a Poem

from BE HERE NOW by the Lama Foundation:

The Big Ice Cream Cone

 

Example: Some body looks at you seductively…

An ice cream cone goes by…………

Will it ever be

THE BIG ICE CREAM CONE

IN THE SKY?

Will it ever be an ETERNAL Ice Cream Cone?

Or…. Is it always going to melt?

You gotta keep eating it

Yet it melts & melts,

That’s the problem

You gotta keep eating it cuz it will melt…

….& then it’s gone

& you know  that taste in your mouth when you

finish &… You want a glass of water? Right?…

Then you have a glass of water & there’s that

BLOATY FEELING?…

Then, you’re ready for the NEXT one…..

To get rid of THAT one………

Let’s take a walk…. & you take a walk…..

It’s cold out. Let’s have some hot chocolate,

Yes, let’s have some, & on & on & on & it’s called

LIFE

You see: the opposite of craving is saying

BABY, THIS IS THE WAY IT IS

YEAH

OK

HERE & NOW

THIS IS IT

I ACCEPT THE HERE & NOW

FULLY

AS

IT

IS

RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT!!!
