|WillowBear's Amble: Whatever it's about, it's here now|

I wrote this in my journal a few days ago: " All that is present in my life right now is here to support my evolution. Being fully present to what is here and now will lead me where I need to go, next. Things are constantly shifting, moving, changing and nothing ever remains the same. Things can change in an instant. I can not see or totally enjoy the gifts of the present if I am hanging out in the past or the future."
Thank /you/, swan. Without meaning to sound trite: maybe the "now" is the crack in the cosmis egg. In fact and actually, the whole swirl of what we conceptual and hope for and fear is all of it accessible through this very "now", and never otherwise! (And it makes my head swim to think of how hard it is to grasp that primordial simplicity!!)

because in the instant it arrives it will become today. Perhaps today is just the fruits of yesterday.
Oh yes, that's the thread. As the cliche goes, "the past is no longer here and the future has not yet arrived" and yet, and yet the past is still with us and the sprouted seeds of the future as well! But the only thing we can connect with /actually/ is what is truly at hand, and that's deff /now/. "Great oaks from little acorns grown."
