There will never be a time when it’ll not be now. Now is now. Not tomorrow. Not yesterday. Now is all we have. We have to trust it.
What is the now telling you?
Since all we have is now, it’s a good idea to learn to interpret it, to get its message, to feel its nudge. We do that by being still within and listening. And feeling. And deciding. Depending on where we are in our life, we’ll hear a different rhythm, a different melody, a different harmony. But it’ll all be part of the same now.
What is the now offering us?
When we remain still enough, we catch the subtle nudges and nuances that line up in a row before us so we may take our pick. What appeals to you right now, in this moment? What feels like it would be a good tool to take with you on your journey? What do you need in your life at this minute? What are good reasons for your choices? What is being offered to you now?
How will “now” affect the “next now”?
It’s not a good idea to think too far ahead, but in this “now” you may have an idea of what you’d like in a now a bit further down the road. You make a choice that will add clarity or direction or a skill that’s needed when that next now shows up.
Are we doing right in this now?
This is the easiest question to answer about a current now. When we know our values, when we know ourselves well – what we need and want, what will nurture and support us – we choose that. There’s no consideration of the future, there’s the choice of exactly what we need right now.
Why if we make a mistake in this now?
The word “mistake” means “miss the mark.” Each time you aim, you get better at the whole “hit-the-mark” process. You aim better, you choose a better target, you send your whole-self arrow off with the choice you make.
There is no mistake – ever. There are, however, choices that became lessons – ones we needed and that improved us by getting them.
Now is exquisite
Take time to live in the now. Hear the now. Feel the now. Understand the messages from the now. Be still. Be aware. Feel. Listen. Choose. Each now is exquisite. Cherish it. Relax into it. Be the now.
