One thing

         Martha, Martha… there is need of only one thing.
                  —Luke 10.42

No matter what you do
what you have done is what
you ended up doing.
Where you are is where
you ended up being.

Only one thing is needed:
to be here,
in this moment,
present, attentive and willing.

Forget your multitasking.
It's just swatting flies.
They'll never go away.
No, practice mono-tasking:
do one thing at a time,
this thing you're doing,
deeply, wholly,
fully open and loving,

Be here. Do that.

This,
and not what you wish or imagine,
here, not elsewhere.
Life is this, not something else.
Pay attention.
