Perhaps the greatest point connecting us all
is that each of us is searching for fulfillment.
For many, this quest leads down external paths –
lying in marriage, living through children,
or chasing the promise of the supernatural.
Perhaps it can be found down these paths, yet . . .
to me the answer seems far simpler
and much closer to home . . .
For this goal can be found by living simply
in one specific time and one singular space.
The time seems simple –
yet so difficult for most –
live right now, in this moment
for its all that we have
and all that we’ll be.
The future’s not come,
the past’s long gone.
Our time sense suited only to BE –
so make each now
the most important now it can be.
And now to your body –
that singular space –
Each fiber, each organ, enervated
Connecting the whole
With feedback on now
Your senses probing surroundings
in touch with each place
rich colors, smells, touch, and taste
the palettes and canvas
composing our lives.
Experiencing each now that you are
with depth, complexity, and texture
Atoms of gases caressing the skin . . .
Photons of energy exciting us all . . .
A moment felt . . . and lived.
Deeper still our bodies made of atoms
Quantum clouds of empty space
Subatomic particles surround us,
compose us, pass through us
at one with the universe’s mysterious grace.
So for fulfillment
Be in touch with your life
Enjoy each moment
Connected to nature,
Each other, and . . . yourself.
