The only time frame I am on is my own, right? Isn’t that a thought we all should embrace or think or strive for?
Life will always throw us down when we are not paying attention. When we are not focused. When we allow things that don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things, to draw our focus away from things that do matter..
“Right now, and in every now-moment, you are either closing or opening. You are either stressfully waiting for something–more money, security, affection–or you are living from your deep heart, opening as the entire moment, and giving what you most deeply desire to give, without waiting. If you are waiting for anything in order to live and love without holding back, then you suffer. Every moment is the most important moment of your life. No future time is better than now to let down your guard and love. Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds. Opening from heart to all, you live as a gift to all. In every moment, you are either opening or closing. Right now, you are choosing to open and give fully or you are waiting. How does your choice feel?”
