What a concept!

choosing to be with a person
without mixed feelings
not out of neediness or habit
what a concept!

choosing to make a committment
that is neither rigid nor empty
not out of fear or neediness
what a concept!

choosing to be in the present
be with my actual life
not because I should or for lack of alternatives
what a concept!

making choices about my life
that work for me and improve my life
not for glory or out of fear
what a concept!

letting go of what I have
accepting that everything passes
because that is reality of life
what a concept!

appreciating beauty and goodness
allowing it to be, without me
without seeking to own it
what a concept!

enjoying the things that are pleasant
avoiding or accepting those that aren't
living a simple inner life
what a concept!
