The Now

(In the Zen of the now,
past and future exist as one.)

Living for the moment
Creates a false state of being,
Of setting you free.
Forget the moment; live for the now.

Being in the moment is to
Have a beginning and an end,
Boundaries where you cannot be free.
Forget the moment; live for the now.

Having a beginning and an end
It is not to have a past nor a future,
Without which, you cannot be free.
Forget the moment; live for the now.

Self-fulfilling nature of the moment
Creates fear of the unknown —
Fear the unknown is not to be free.
Forget the moment; live for the now.

Experiencing the now is to
Know the past and learn of the future,
Releasing fear and setting you free.
Forget the moment; live for the now.

Learning takes place only in the now
Containing life’s recipe (the past),
Providing directions to being free.
Forget the moment; live for the now.

Giving of the now
Is to create a future,
In which you can be free.
Forget the moment; live for the now.

Living for the now is to give worth
To the past and value to the future,
A future of being free.
Forget the moment; live for the now.

Living in the now is to experience
Love and life’s peak experiences,
By which others can be free.
Forget the moment; live for the now.
