NEWBORN

She knows nothing
She doesn’t know that
She knows without knowing
Best not to tell her that though
It would take years and years
For her to recover her grace
Effortless effortlessness
No need for knowing
Unknown knowing

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. I can relate to this so well. The beauty of not expecting yourself to know everything while embracing the freedom that comes from knowing its not possible to know everything you could possibly want to know. A blessed duality that leads to knowing what you need to know in the moment you need to know it and not worrying about what doesn’t come to you when you think it should.

    • I am well behind in replying to comments or reading posts. Tomorrow I am off to Scotland for a few days so that will only make matters worse. OTOH I’ll be (hopefully) forgetting all that and having a relaxed time with friends. I hope you and your family had a good Christmas and I wish you the very best for 2020. ❤️

      • I so thankful you reached out. You have been on my mind recently. A couple times I started to write an email but knowing how busy you are with emails, I didn’t want to add to the list of people to get back to.

        I sincerely hope you have a wonderful holiday and find that relaxation and good times we are all in need of. My heart is with you and looking forward to the next times our minds catch up.

        My Christmas was simply divine and full of the wonderful love that the holiday is all about. I look forward to a similarly blessed New Years.

        My heart is happy as I share these words with you. I like when we touch base. Much love and luck and light in your every moment until we share words again.

        ❤️

      • I am reaching the bottom of the pile of e-mails/comments that arrived while I was away. I generally work backwards day by day while also trying to deal with incoming ones. Scotland was a cheery time and I met several new folk – friends and neighbours of my hostesses.

        Remember that 2020 means perfect vision. Auspicious, I’m sure you will agree.

        ❤️
