The Now — Revisited (July 2010)   2 comments

Self-portrait

The Now

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

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 in which you cannot be free.
Forget the moment, live for the now.

Having a beginning and an end
Is to not have a past or a future,
Without which you cannot be free.
Forget the moment, live for the now.

Self-fulfilling nature of the moment
Creates a fear of the unknown,
To fear the unknown is to not 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),
And future 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.
