The Wise Old Lady In The Rocking Chair

Feel yourself in the future

Old and wise sat in your rocking chair

Possibly your higher self except this person is actually also you here embodied now

You’ve lived your life

You’ve seen a lot

You’ve lived, laughed, loved and cried

You have worked with the silly man made restrictions of systems and time

The illusions people create

How you got caught up in it all

Believing it all to be you

That there is only one reality

And only one way of responding to everything

That you in the future has done it all

Now sitting calmly in the rocking chair

Looking at those before you

Running around confused and bewildered

Identifying with their thoughts and the world dramas

You laugh at them

You look back at the absurdity of it all

And think ‘fuck it’ and laugh

You are here on that rocking chair in timelessness

No stresses and pressures

In simplicity

No getting caught up in the mind

In touch with an aspect of yourself beyond measure

Gently rocking back and forth

Smiling to yourself

Happy with just being

Sitting in harmony amongst nature

That is content with just being too

Just taking what it needs

You’re not doing things just because someone tells you to

You are at peace with yourself

With the world

With others

You have let go

No attachments

Just here being you

As people will see that and realise

‘Wow this person is so content

I feel that loving beingness

Just feeling that from this person

Makes me feel it in myself

So it must already be here within myself’

And something shifts inside of them

As though a seed that was already there has been nurtured

That old lady in the rocking chair smiles

Beaming out her love

Free and full of humour

Young at heart

Her light shines on you

Just as the sun appears everyday for you

So when something comes up for you

Ask what this future you relaxed in a rocking chair would say or do
