The Moment We Live In Is Now
by Rawbecca Ann Lotus Gienow

living in the moment and the now

living in the moment and the now

The future is ready
right here in the Now
The past can be potent
but it’s here in the Now
Time is an illusion
That takes place in the mind
Searching for meaning
and a way to define
The various things
that take place out of time
For when did you
remember a thing in the past?
Or when did you create
a thing in the future?
Stop looking for portends
or to make all things last
For all that takes place
Is here in This moment
Awakening the seed
of this life to be opened
Memories come hurling
from a distant past

living in the now and loving life

living in the now and loving life

Thoughts create a process
that give form to some future
But it is here in This Now
that we can seize The Moment
It is here that our minds
are vital and potent
The beauty and passion
Make it a day
Breathing it in, in the best possible way
Not worrying or fretting
and living with rations
But taking it in
So our dreams can be fashioned

Yes some memories will pop
though some will not
And our thoughts will create
giving birth to our state
Generating the forms
that we chose to meditate
And these will materialize
on some future date

being present and be here now

being present and be here now

But all that takes place
Is here in The Now
There is only one heaven
And it lives in This Now
Not regretting the past
And not worrying the future
It is in this Power Of Now
where all life begins
The only place we can change
the state we are in
Whether it be mind or it matter
It starts from within
By living This moment
Where life always begins
