Each moment exists for its time and then moves on into the past. And each moment that is, was the future a moment before, as time flows and your life passes, this precious life, this one life that you are living at the moment.
And so, in this flow of time and life, two things are true: one is that nothing is ever lost and you have chance after chance after chance, as this life flows into another and as you are lifted up into the great oneness in which there is no time passing, simply being. The other thing that is true at the same time is that this moment, this one right here, right now, is precious and unique, and there will never again, in this life or another to come, be another moment exactly like this one, where you and those around you are this exact manifestation of personality and body, where the sun and stars are exactly like this, where that leaf on that tree drifts down through the air in exactly this way.
And so, knowing these two things, you can see how to build a life. You can see that the beauty of life and the opportunities that it holds, opportunities to move forward, opportunities to simply enjoy life, must be grasped now, must be captured in the instant of their passing. Each moment is an open door you can walk through. But at the same time, there is no need for regret, for the next moment is an open door as well, and even though you will not have exactly the same opportunity, you will have another, one that is perfect in its own moment.
Allow yourself to live with zest and vibrancy, jumping in to enjoy this life, right now. But when the moment is over, when one phase of your life completes, let it go. Keep facing forward as you move along the path of life, letting the fresh wind of opportunity blow in.
And know too that at the highest and widest, in the levels above you where you are your own precious soul self, you are still deeply connected with everyone in love, regardless of what has happened in this lifetime. At that higher level, you are one. Nothing has been lost. Nothing is ever lost and all is love, all is light, all is oneness.
And so why not simply enjoy this moment, this moment that will come once only in all of eternity, sparkling as it does, just so? And at the same time, be aware of the higher levels, the timeless eternity of love and connection and, at the highest level, the great oneness, the all, in one vast glow of energy and beingness, ever and always. It is all there, it is all true, it is all yours, right now.
Here is a little prayer for today
I embrace this moment, today, in love and joy. I see it with all of its sparkling possibilities and know it as utterly unique.
I love my life and I love myself, right now. This moment is precious and I open to it fully.
I am the power and energy that is. I am one with all that is. I am love and light. I am.
