Mindful at the Oasis

Written by David Nichtern


Mindful at the Oasis
Breathing in breathing out
Being here in the moment
That’s what it’s all about

Making money’s good for you
Creativity’s good too
But none of it’s worth a damn nickel
If you don’t like being you.

Come on
The cushion is our friend
The Buddha’s point out the way
Come on it’s time to practice again
Until the bell rings to end
Until the bell rings to end.

You can put down your cell phone
You can stop texting your friends
You can learn how to see you,
Be you, and pause every now and then
