One Thought Away

In his book Paths to God:
Living the Bhagavad Gita

Ram Dass writes
“It’s always just one thought away

The living spirit
The community of our consciousness

The guru within—
Whatever you want to call it

Is always just one thought away—
One thought!”

Gadgetry distractions abound
Joy in the present moment is just one thought away

Anger about to explode in the parking lot
Equanimity is just one thought away

Tempted to beat up on yourself
“You’re a Genius all the Time” is just one thought away

Tallying up someone else’s character defects
Loving-kindness is just one thought away

Negative habit energy comes knocking at the door
Conscious breathing is just one thought away

Tempest-tossed on the ocean of Samsara
“Gaté, gaté, paragaté, parasamgaté, Bodhi svaha!” is just one thought away

A cloudy drowsy day for zoning out
Sri Anandamayi Ma is just one thought away
