Watching The Now (revised)

Now is how.

 Watching The Now

Isolating muscles, breath,
Concentrating on a troth;
A point of truth;
At a juncture, staying there,
Long as capability is able;
Taking in the ‘you yourself’,
For self’s what makes you knowable.

As will prevails,
Hour’s powers do not sail.
You may then sense
The endless aspects of existence:
Living’s multitudes to choose among.

When direction from within
Goes wandering, bring it back to focusing.
Find a locus.*
Restlessness the cause of movement.
Longing, boredom the dissolvent,
Mind’s aim is to think, to prove.

Inspect, respect it,
Soothe and bring it back to now,
For now is all you ever own but never keep,
Superficial and/or deep.
Watch from wakefulness to sleep.
Now is how.
