Be Present

Dec 15th, 2017

I yearn for a moment where genius is driven by the nucleus of man,
For a time where truth is felt deep within the crevice of the mind,
Where the enigma of the soul sits in union with the heart.

I yearn for a moment where silence is the most evident truth,
Where the passions of man are felt deep within the sound waves of the soul,
For a time where I am left mesmerized by the whispers of the heart.

I no longer yearn for this moment, for this moment is Now.

About the Author Anousheh Elmi first discovered Yoga in 2006, while living in Marin County, California. At that time, she was awaiting her California Bar Examination results to become a licensed attorney. The stress and anxiety of waiting for the results caused her to find an outlet that would enable her to release unwanted tension. She began to gain an appreciation for what would ultimately guide her path in life. Her Yoga practice guided her, strengthened her from within, and enabled her to tap deep within herself. Connecting to her source energy has been the greatest gift from Yoga. For it is this connectivity that has allowed her creativity to be explored in ways she never imagined possible. Today Anousheh lives and works in Los Angeles, California, as a Deputy Public Defender, preserving and defending the constitutional rights and liberties of indigent individuals. Her Yoga practice continues to guide her in all avenues of her life, allowing her to be a strong and passionate advocate for her clients in the courtroom, and beyond that, a friend to mankind. Yoga is her inspiration and what she believe to be her path to truth. Her poems come from a place deep within her, a place where all positive energy is one.
