Now I know how a fish must feel when it is pulled out of water before it dies. I know what it feels like to be dying of a broken heart. I now know what it feels like to be close to the edge. I have felt the treachery of time.
That was his life and this is mine.
However I may want to describe the present moment, it is all I have.
I need to acknowledge and honour that.
I need to allow it to be.
The more I focus on time, the past and the future, the more I miss this moment right now, right here in front of me. This is the most precious thing. It is all there is. This is where and when life is happening and unfolding. It is now. This is where I can access the timeless and formless realm of Being that lies beyond the limited confines of my mind.
This is true for us all.
“Nothing ever happened in the past; it happened in the Now.
Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now.” – Eckhart Tolle.
The moon has no light of its own. It can only reflect the light of the sun. Similarly the past and the future are only pale reflections of the light of the eternal present.
