Present Moment Exercise – Stepping into a new now
Suggested Reading: The Space Between Things
When the present moment becomes a gateway
I was angry that day
and walking in that angry way
Hard steps, Head down,
Eyes so focused out and down
that I could burn ants on the ground
with my laser-beam scowl.
She rode up on a golf cart,
Blocking my path to speak.
I had to stop or hit her;
Only glanced slightly at her
lest I burn her up with my eyes.
“How are you today?”
I said walking around the cart.
She jogs the cart
in front of me once more.
“How ’bout now?” she asks.
I repeated in capital letters
and stomped on.
A third time, she stopped me….
“How ’bout now?”
I felt my entire mind, body and consciousness shift in that “Now”. I suddenly remembered what I had forgotten. The present moment, the Now, may be traveled through – there is more than one dimension in the now, more than one reality. The body may serve as a conduit for a new now if the right focus is also present.
All I needed to do was shift, literally, into a new now, a now without anger.
Thank you Davinia, for your persistent vibration of good cheer that day. You were a blessing to me.
