A new year, a new moon, a new breath, a new moment…
No matter what great joy or what great struggle you are facing right now, there is the possibility of not foreclosing on what will happen next. We may have ideas, pictures or concepts about what the next moment will bring. But truthfully, we can never really be sure.
I think in the past, my very human fear of uncertainty has stopped from really facing the reality of this. How unknowable even the next moment is.
And yet, the more I do (face the mystery of this millisecond), the more I discover the liberating freedom that is here and now. With all the known and unknown possibilities of life not yet unfolded.
Of course, it helps to see each moment as a gift… No matter how uncomfortable or frightening it is. I can’t help feeling that I am blessed just to be. That we all are.
So. this is my experience. What is yours? If you don’t foreclose on the next moment, how does it feel?
