It’s been a while since I have posted. There is a reason for that…. life happens and sometimes requires a transformation. I have had many over the last year that I plan on sharing in the weeks to come. Before getting into all of that I wanted to post this week about The Big Moment. This is a poem that is a reminder that we get our richest moment when we are present right now.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
The Big Moment by Ruth Tipler
It is not only the past that brings us here
The future is pull us as well
But sometimes we are left free of the tugging
And the moment opens up.
It is in these spaces that we find our reason.
And it is in these space that we lose all reason.
And after all the thoughts have done their thinking
There is nothing left but peace
And wide outrageous grins.
We cannot stop the pushing and the pulling of
The past and future
It’s only in the letting go
That the struggle ceases.
The moment said to the past
I am from you.
And the moment said to the future
I am for you.
The past looked at the future
And they both shrugged.
And the future said to the past
Have you ever seen this moment before?
No, said the past.
And past said to the future
Do you think you will ever see this moment?
No said the future.
They turned to look at the moment
But it was gone.
The very attempt of the moment
To fit itself into the past or the future
Made it disappear.
But when the moment saw the future and the past
As picture on the wall for its own amusement
And turned instead to a mirror
The moment expanded
Until it was so huge
It swallowed up the universe.
