Here ... There

So inviting
is the Next;
the Beyond;

"Patience." whispers Now.

"Know the Present;

this Moment;

what Is."

All we have is "now". The next minute, hour or day is not promised to any of us. I try very hard to live in the present. But nothing wrong with thinking, hoping & planning the future as long as we don't forget to appreciate the "now". Its gone in a flash. Bless you John-Michael!

so many of us are in such a rush...thank you for reminding us to savor where we are.

John-Michael said...

"Therefore be not anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be solicitous for the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is its own evil." (the Book of Matthew; chapter 6; verse 34 [Webster's Bible Translation])

Hard to add to that, isn't it, my Dear Anonymous Friend.

"Still" ... "Quiet" ... these are words that frequent my awareness, Darling Lime.

I do appreciate the Presence of the Moment ... and this image from the BBC brought an immediate echo of this tiny bit of reflection.

I am truly glad that you find encouragement in it.

Lovingly ...
