Seek That Peace - Poem by Michael Hopkins

Seek that peace.

That peace that awaits all whom be but still and at rest.

Seek an inner sanctuary.

That springs forth as a breathe.

As a whisper.

As a feeling of deep contentment.

A contentment that comes from being in the now.

For now is real.

Past and future are mere constructs of the human ego.

Be in the present moment and feel at ease.

Be in the present moment and feel the breathe of living.

Be in the present moment and feel loved.

Be in the present moment and be love incarnate in a human form.

Be in the present and be free of both past and future.

Now be still and be at peace.

    'Be in the present moment and be love incarnate in a human form' - wonderful! The best line of the poem, to me.
    Could you please edit and reduce the gap between the lines? The poem would look much better that way. You may click 'no spacing' after typing it in MS Word and highlighting the poem.
