We’re afraid all the time of what the future will bring—afraid we’ll lose our jobs, our possessions, the people around us whom we love. So we wait and hope for that magical moment—always sometime in the future—when everything will be as we want it to be. We forget that life is available only in the present moment…….Thich Nhat Hanh
such a relief it is to let go into okness…….ahhh, yes……this, now, is who you are, who you are meant to be, fully, alive, and there is plenty of time to be, and yes, ok……..
Set aside everything you know, for just one
moment, and lay your hands on your heart.
Feel the aliveness of the sacred world. See
that there is no grace coming in the future,
there is no awakening around the corner,
for love is here now.
As the days grow shorter, it’s impossible to miss the impermanence of life. The days slip away into darkness. Often, I’ve had the haunted sensation at the end of a busy day that I didn’t do what I meant to do, and that I didn’t really mean what I did. A feeling can come that is like a call from another world, to come down out of all my thoughts and distractions, to pay attention……Tracy Cochran
