You Are Life Just as it Is

Here’s poem today from Mooji that teaches that you are life just as it is.

Mooji was born Anthony Paul Moo-Young in Jamaica in 1954. He was a street artist in the “West End” of London town for many years. Sri Harilal Poonja, the renowned advaita master, or Papaji, as his followers call him was Mooji’s guru. People now flock to see this guy.

You Are Life Just as it Is

Mooji and Dennis

Dennis doesn’t exist

Who gave us this crazy idea that we should know how to live?
Does a tree know how to grow?
Does a cloud know how to float?
Does the wind know where it is blowing?
Does a road know it is going somewhere?
Don’t know how to live,
just recognize that you are life and life just is.
– Mooji

You may recall the definition of mindfulness – paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally. This way, we begin to experience love, joy, wonder, and wisdom in this life, just as it is.

This poem is about resting in our own true nature and living life just as we find it.
