WORDS LIKE LIGHT
Sunday, September 26, 2021
All day today, there will be a wondrous arrival: the present moment. I will continuously see the appearance of something never seen before – a brand-new guest called ‘here and now’. It will be like the surfacing of a miracle, over and over again – a sunrise inside each moment, a new dawn at 5:05:01 and 5:05:02 and 5:05:03. I hope I am ready to greet each arrival, and ready to be astonished.
And … I hope I can feel youthfulness throughout the moments of this day, because it will definitely be there. Each of my approximately 57,000 waking moments today will be spry and sprightly, born brand-new right here and now. There couldn’t possibly be anything ‘old’ all day , because each and every moment will have never existed before. No one will have ever seen 8:42 a.m., September 26, 2021, before it unfolds later this morning, and the same is true for all the other moments of this fresh-faced day. Each one will appear in the springtime of its life, full of child-like vitality. I truly cannot escape from this continuous sparkle of creation today – and, anyway, who would want to escape from continuous, state-of-the art, and full-of-life paradise?
ONE DAY A WOMAN AWOKE One day, a woman awoke to see that she actually lived in a land overflowing with a different kind of affluence, for hovering around her, she now saw, were limitless riches, but in the form of friendliness and generosity and gentleness. As far as she could see, treasures like kindness and unselfishness were fanned out and free for the taking. She asked her husband to help her gather them, but then they saw these gifts were flowing freely into their lives, so they relaxed and just laughed and let them arrive.
