Age Group: Adult

NOW is the only TIME that exists for me, This second the only reality I may ever truly occupy, this present moment calls to me to BE and I …WILL choose to ANSWER!

No more will I walk with the eyes of my heart, mind, and spirit focused on some ‘possible’ future, some far-off imagined destiny, some future that is a dream yet unrealized.

I will be present, aware, feeling, senses open and receptive to the freely offered gifts of this loving Universe that exist NOW for me within this singular moment of time.

I will walk in peace and connection with all things around me, each of my steps measured, walking slowly, free from my usual hurry as I move within this my allotted time.

Gods, I pray that You assist me to be fully present in this moment, fully aware of the precious souls about me that I may hold each of them in sacred love and true connection.

For LIFE is a sacred gift which I have often appeared determined to rush to the end of, to speed past the beauty and wonder present in each crystal moment of time that I have occupied.

Disconnection begins with fear, fear that stimulates us to rush, to shut our ears and inner eyes, to stay so busy that we do not feel fear’s painful grip upon our lives, its weigh pulling us down into despair.

Ego feeds my fears telling me that I “am not good-enough”, “not smart-enough”, “not loveable- enough”, to handle this LIFE I have been gifted with, this singular chance to GROW and LIVE.

But Ego lies to me, Speed and rushing into some potential future at the expense of the concrete present is damaging and wasteful, causing me to miss so much that is offered to me by the Universe with love.

So to myself and before this blessed Universe will I state my soul’s intent
NOW will I slow down…NOW will I breathe into each present moment….
NOW will I walk my soul’s eyes wide open to this moment….
NOW will I cease looking off to some imagined future….
NOW will I LISTEN and REFLECT….NOW will I COMMIT to SEE, to LOVE, to CONNECT, Truly striving to VALUE each of the precious souls I come into contact with.

Therefore within this my heartbeat, encased within this singular instant of reality, connected with this blessed time that is NOW….…….
Do I choose to………………
