When did this turn into legal rationing of love given and withheld? When did this turn into out performing oneself, or attempting to out perform the world?
When did this vivacious, outgoing, risk-taking, fun-loving girl began to be cautious, go into hiding, stand on the sidelines observing tentatively, instead of dancing in the living room love full for all to see? When did she learn to shut down?
Have you ever asked yourself that question, ever noticed the luster growing dull, the laugher trailing off, while duty piles high? That’s when you know its time to return to the now.
This Sweet Now
List maker it’s time to stop
Step out of tomorrow and back into now
Embrace this moment before it’s gone
Expand into Presence all love and full
Be here now, before now trifles on
Take in this beauty that will be no more
Take in this moment that will pass away quickly
The moment you try to catch it, it will be gone
Experience it, savor it and drink it in
Abundance inside this now
Thick full provision
Nothing lacking in now
It only slips away when you move a head into future
It slips beneath your fingers when you stay behind in the past
And you miss this now nectar
Fill up in the full of this moment
Get inside and whirl around
Let it expand you
This sweet now
