The Power of Now
With the recent deeply tragic world events, where fear and panic seem like reasonable choices, I am reminded of the power of now. In my experience, most often than not, fear lives in the future and when you follow fear you leave the present moment. Coming back to the present moment I ask myself, “am I safe right now in this moment?” If yes, (taking a deep breath), there is no need for panic.
A thought occurred to me; when you are stripped of your possessions (as some of our brothers and sisters in Japan have been), what do you have left? You have you, your beingness, expressed every moment through the power of now. I ask myself sometimes, what am I choosing to express in this very moment: fear or love? What does the world need most? (Hint: not more fear!)
This poem beautifully expresses the choice of love over fear:
The Choice for Love
What does the voice of fear whisper to you?
Fear speaks to you in logic and reason.
It assumes the language of love itself.
Fear tells you,
“I want to make you safe”
“You are safe”
“Give me symbols.
Give me frozen images.
Give me something to rely on.”
Loving truth says,
“Only give me this moment”
Fear would walk you
on a narrow path
promising to take you
where you want to go.
“Open your arms and fly with me”
Every moment of your life
you are offered the opportunity to choose-
love or fear,
to tread the earth
or to soar the heavens.
excerpted from Emmanuel’s Book II compiled by Pat Rodegast and Judith Stanton
You see, the many 2012 predictions in my humble opinion…(etc.) are all in the future, yet we are creating our future in the now, it is still in the process of being created. I believe we still have a choice to recreate a world based on love, compassion, equality, reverence for mother earth, and the interconnectedness of all life. I am not saying it will be overnight, but I believe we are all co-creaters on this journey. If consciousness creates reality like so many believe, I believe we can choose to shift our consciousness to one of Love. I heard somewhere that the prophecies are successful if they don’t come true, their purpose was to warn us, so that we might make better choices. So what are the choices? Love or Fear.
I know when I write stuff like this it seems “airy fairy” and perhaps more theory/belief than practical info to some, and even sometimes to myself! But then I imagine: What if everyone in the world vibrated in Love consciousness and made every single decision from their hearts for the good of all life? Can you imagine what a different world this would be? I doubt there would be nuclear reactors or any type of pollution for that matter because we would have put so much time, energy, and resources developing clean energy sources where no life had to be harmed for our “progress”. As a human race, I feel that most of us have underestimated the power of our Love. I haven’t given up hope that we will reclaim our power and take it from those that choose to harm us and the earth for the feeding of the EGO, the false god as a society that we have worshiped to our detriment.
So what do the recent tragic events, the 2012 prophecies, have to do with being in the present moment? Come back to the present moment and ask yourself, “am I safe right now in this moment?” If yes, (take a deep breath), there is no need for panic. Choose to be Love now. Even in the midst of the illusion stand strong in the truth of your Love. Believe in it and believe in the power of now. I still do.
