Living in the moment at hand is not as easy as it seems. There is a trauma from the moments past that demand our attention. There is a fear of moments to come that cries out for our mind's imagination. Both are very real. There are tangible, full of emotional baggage, and oh so real. Yet they are, in all reality, not particularly relevant to your life and mine. We may learn from the past and apply to the present. We may prepare for the future by acting in the present. Regardless of where we think the action is, everything happens in the present.
Despite lessons from the past to the contrary, I find myself struggling to do things on my own. It is as if the god within is still struggling for supremacy. It is a losing battle. I know I am not alone in this approach, but knowing this does not make a difference. The fact that “we” share a common approach does not change the probabilities of success. I also know that “we're no better off than bears, groaning, and no worse off than doves, moaning. We look for justice-not a sign of it; for salvation-not so much as a hint.” (Isaiah 59.11)
Yet in a state of helplessness I find myself coming face to face with peace. In my god failure I find a connection with God that resides within which in turn defines my success. In my letter go, I find a connection. In my ceasing to strive, I find results. There are reasons to simply be; living is one of them.
I want to live, fully and completely. The best way to do this rests with a principle that goes against the grain of my soul. I must simply be in and with God. I must let go of my agenda and trusts the Spirit. I must think through Divinity's eyes.
With the dawn, I see others and myself differently. With a new day, I find my path bathed in freedom. Everything begins in being fully and completely present.
