“To let the moment teach us, we must allow ourselves to be at least slightly stunned by it until it draws us inward and upward, toward a subtle experience of wonder.” ~ Richard Rohr
All of eternity has been waiting for this moment.
Life has deposited us right here, right now. We should be filled with wonder and awe. The secret is to look to this incredible moment for all that you have desired and dreamed. For these things cannot be held in yesterday’s memories. Though they may have been fully realized, that bird has flown.
They cannot be found in the mist of many tomorrows. Though they are ripe with promise, they do not yet exist. Now is the time. Today is the day. Real promise is unfolding. Opportunities are presenting themselves. People are holding out their hands with gifts and offerings. Everything we ever needed, wanted and anticipated has been awaiting our arrival.
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.” ~ William W. Purkey
The sacred moment is here. Can we deny the amazing prospects that are open to us? Sure we can. But what a waste it would be. Rise and shine. The door is open! Let’s dance through it with a song of joy and hope on our lips. Now is the time to make Life Wonderful!
