The Time is Now




I am no longer waiting for a special occasion; I burn the best candles on ordinary days.⠀


I am no longer waiting for the house to be clean; I fill it with people who understand that even dust is Sacred.


I am no longer waiting for everyone to understand me; it’s just not their task.⠀


I am no longer waiting for the perfect children; my children have their own names that burn as brightly as any star.

I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop; It already did, and I survived.⠀


I am no longer waiting for the time to be right; the time is always now.⠀


I am no longer waiting for the mate who will complete me; I am grateful to be so warmly, tenderly held.

I am no longer waiting for a quiet moment; ⠀

my heart can be stilled whenever it is called.⠀


I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace; I unclench my grasp and breathe peace in and out.⠀


I am no longer waiting to do something great; being awake to carry my grain of sand is enough.⠀


I am no longer waiting to be recognized; I know that I dance in a holy circle.⠀


I am no longer waiting for Forgiveness.⠀

I believe, I Believe.⠀
