FRIDAY’S POEM FROM “RHYTHMS AND CYCLES” – The Future is Now

Today’s poem is a reprise from a few months ago. It comes to mind as we look toward Rosemary’s Possibilities Playshop next week. In this event we use our intuitive skills to “plan forward” toward our “bodacious wish” for the future. How does the future and all our planning (we in the west or so good about planning!) relate to the practice of being present, living now? This poem gets at that cycle and enigma of time.

The Future is Now

If the future is now
Dreams are now.
This is Dream Time.

And is the past now?
Forgiveness is now.
This is the lesson.

Now is only now,
Past time, Dream Time,
All one now.
