Category: Poems & Prayers Written by Nick Polizzi
Many folks silently starve themselves of the peace and contentedness that is waiting in every moment, convinced that it can only be experienced once a group of external pieces falls into place.
Why can't we be fully alive and activated right NOW?
Without further ado...
Look to this day,
for it is life, the very breath of life.
In its brief course lie
all the realities of your existence;
the bliss of growth,
the glory of action,
the splendor of beauty.
For yesterday is only a dream,
and tomorrow is but a vision.
But today, well lived,
makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow
a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
This poem reminds us that the past and the future dwell only in our minds, and in truth, all that we ever experience is this present moment. "Look well, therefore, to this day..."
A shaman friend once advised me, "Don't let the illusions of your past or future rob you of the infiniteness of your present." This is now written on an internal sticky note, somewhere in the back of my mind :)
