Now is all we have. How many times have we used or heard that phrase…?
Knowing this and living it, however, are often two different things when our “now” is a place we don’t want to be. Maybe it’s painful, chaotic, filled with uncertainty or even preparing us for an unwelcome event. Seeing peace and joy and possibility in those nows isn’t so easy when we’d rather project ourselves into a happier state: “I’d be happy if… (insert future or past conditions here).”
Our now is limitless, always new and full of possibilities. Welcoming those possibilities creates the foundation for our future. Making room for the good that’s possible begins with recognizing and releasing what doesn’t serve us anymore. If we cling to something that must go, we block our own evolution. Maybe we’re working through job or relationship change, maybe it’s an illness or relocation. Maybe it’s resisting our natural aging process.
Our next step to greater abundance is always now because that’s the way the universe creates: through endless abundance now. We are part of that abundance, that creation; and welcoming change – staying open to what’s possible – is important and (if we allow it) invigorating work.
That invigoration begins with staying focused on holding the vibration of growth and possibility and connectedness, staying ready for the richness waiting to be recognized and realized. A new relationship, an unexpected career, a surprise connection to a talent we didn’t know we had are all in our Now – ready to be incorporated into our foundation for the future.
Alan Watts said “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”
Let the music play.
