This quote spoke to me today as I have been having conversations about the current state of affairs, the uncertain future, and the need to stay centered through it all. So much easier said than done. But, let us consider the most basic nature of the quote…simply that only now, this moment, is real. What has passed has already happened and the future has not happened yet, so the Now is the only place to focus.
Here are my thoughts…Now is the one full of possibilities. Now is happening as we speak, so we can fill it, decide about it, moment to moment.
If we focus on those possibilities…not on what we perceive to be the inevitable future…then there is the opportunity for Change.
Even if we don’t “know” what all those possibilities are, they are still there, waiting to be sought and discovered. As long as there is hope and time, which we always have because we live in the Now, then there is the possibility for something different to occur.
We just need to be open to the thought that it can be different. Not leave our thoughts mired in that false inevitability.
* In the blink of Space between Now and the Inevitable or Future…Change can happen.
Perhaps we should turn our focus to that blink of space, rather than the past or future, and place all our hopes, needs, and desires there…where those possibilities for change live. What might happen then?
I don’t know…what do you think?
Blessings and Love!
