Heaven is a moment

July 31, 2018

2

I can’t believe I didn’t post this! I wrote this on March 20th about my experiences and realizations through practicing Vipassana. ___ Heaven is a moment Of quiet and stillness A break from the busyness Of thoughts, words and deeds And emails, phones and lists Heaven is a moment Of self care and worship A […]
