At the point in the centre

I am at that point; I paint points while sketching a point of escape. By painting points, just like repeating a mantra, I am able to reach the centre of life, this moment, presence in the moment, just now.

There is no past, no future.

The past has passed away.

The future is only in its inception.

This moment is experiencing, there’s nothing else.

Stopping here, at the centre of everything, is being.

“Peace is every step” -Thich Nhat Hahn
