Just For Now

(post #20)

During my early morning yoga class today, our instructor shared this little poem.  It spoke to me and I hope it does to you too.

Just For Now

Just for now, without asking how, let yourself sink into stillness.
Just for now, lay down the
weight you so patiently
bear upon your shoulders.
Feel the earth receive
you, and the infinite
expanse of sky grow even
wider as your awareness
reaches up to meet it.

 Just for now, allow a wave of breath to enliven your experience.

Breathe out
whatever blocks you from
the truth.

Just for now, be
boundless, free, awakened
energy tingling in your
hands and feet. Drink in
the possibility of being
who and what you really are
so fully alive that when you
open your eyes the world
looks different, newly born
and vibrant, just for now.
