The Moment.

How long could she shut out the World? To open her eyes would allow the harsh light of day to blind her vision. A vision she no longer wished to see. She had witnessed cruelty beyond measure of Man’s inhumanity to man.

If she kept her eyes closed she could shut the world out. She could stop the constant chatter; the inaudible rabble the world threw out, the constant noise of the ‘woe is me’, ‘the I have not’, ‘the I want’ and ‘it’s mine’

Within the darkness behind her closed eyelids she could create a perfect world. A world of love and healing, a world of unity and sharing, a world of giving and receiving. A selfless world of Peace.

She wished this throbbing in her temples would cease, in fact it was at such times as these she wished she could just vanish completely. But as soon as the thought appeared she vanquished it from her mind, she knew she still had to fulfil her destiny, complete her mission, she knew her ‘Time’ was not yet.

‘Time’ ….everything had its Season, a time to sow a time to reap, ………

Harvest Time, ….. Now there she could focus, she knew all about harvest time… (We plough the seeds and scatter the good seed on the land) arrgh she thought what seeds indeed did we sow. Again she was a child, running, carefree, laughing.. Oh to have that feeling back, to wake each day with that Joy and spring in her step. To view the world with untainted innocence.

She wished Time would open up its ticking hands just to hold her still. To stop her thoughts from racing off into the future or slipping into the past. She wished Time would hold her still within that ‘moment’.

She laughed out loud, the sound echoed within the tunnel of her thoughts like an alien train. She’d had many ‘moments’ and each of them had been a ‘Now moment’ but she had let them All slip away as she looked over her shoulder as the shadows of the past crept up. Or she chased them into her future wishing them to come.

The salty brine oozed from beneath her eyelids, but she still refused to open them. Where did all those ‘Now’ moments go? Lost, gathered up in vague recollections.

The Light squeezed a ray of silver under her lids as the salt stung at her eyes.. Her temples throbbed in unison with her heart, pounding now within the cage beneath her breasts. A cage she had placed herself in. The rays of light filtered through her lashes creating prisms of colours that darted in lines she counted them, One,…… two,…….. three………………….

She opened her eyes with a start, the Sun had come out from behind the clouds.. She was back within the ‘Now’.. and a smile once again touched her lips for she realised she could live within the Now Moment any time she wished.. For ALL Moments are Now moments..

She just needed to believe and Live and ‘breathe’.. Every Moment Now….

    A cage she had placed herself in.

    If only we would remember – we place ourselves in the cages, in the limitations, in the moments of fear … Collectively and individually, we must work on the appreciation of NOW, for that is truly the only gift we have! Yesterday is gone – tomorrow is not even a promise … only the NOW … thank you for the reminder!

    Such a pleasantly told story my great friend, with an insight to the world around us, looking into the past and refreshing the inner thoughts, cleansing the mind and repeating the wonders of time in a never-ending capsule that collects memories old and new, pushing the envelope of seconds, minutes and hours, time just ticking by and as the realities of the moment sweetened the consciousness, the moment of the now was restored and all beauty re-established…

    Have a wonderful Tuesday now Sue 🙂

    Live in the “now” because “now” is your moment at life…the “was” has already been lived and is gone. The “will be” is yet to be lived and so does not yet exist for you yet. That reality is yet to happen, as is the new moment of life you will call “now.”

    I thought perhaps you wrote this for me!

    Beautiful, as always! Thank you.

    It reminds me of the healing session with the Taoist Alchemist. During a silent meditation, he asks me to open up to the light coming in. Not closing my eyes, but being open to it, aware of the Now! So much like what you wrote!

    You are amazing.

    With all my love,
    Michelle.

    Sometimes living in the MOMENT seems the hardest to do. I wonder if we tend to gravitate toward the negativity surrounding us in this world, rather than the positive, the love, and beauty of it all.
    I cannot tell you how often I want to feel that innocence and desire to be open to being here now.
    Learning to focus, to give and love is the way.
    I always learn and renew here my friend.
    aho, Rx

      Arrgh thank you Raven… likewise as I gravitate towards Ravenswood to float between the trees and you never know I may meet that little Fairy in a wisp of Magic Dust as she sprinkles her own healing balm upon her many visitors to her wooded land.. Aho!….. x
