Dear Child of Mine,
Stay present. Now is all you have. Don’t you see that the present is all that exists? It is where you find Me. It is where you find True Life. I am.
Do you not know that I am with you always? I am guiding your every step. Even when your fallen mind becomes distracted and begins to wander from Me, I will not let you go too far.
You are never lost. You are home. You are here. With Me. Now.
When you need to be reminded of this, come sit in My Presence, just as you are. It is good to stay grounded. I have everything under control and you are exactly where I intend for you to be.
So enjoy this moment, love the ones you’re with, and share The Good News about Me. It is really that simple.
You all complicated things when you introduced time. Have you forgotten that I am Timeless? Where I exist there is no time.
I am here with you, now and forever. Now, won’t you stay here with Me?
Our most difficult task is to live in the present
Yes, this must be our most difficult task
To live truly free, from the angst of the future
All chains broken, from the links of the past
Our most pressing issue, our deepest concern
Our happiness well, the love for which we yearn
All here in the present, waiting for us
Though it is difficult, meet there we must
The only place where God exists
The here, the now, a heavenly bliss
While all the world serves to distract
To live in the present, our most difficult task.
Some people live in the past, we call them stuck. Some people live in the future, always striving, and we call them successful.
But the truth is, these people are no better off than those who are stuck in the past because the only truly successful people are the ones living in the present.
The ultimate present is presence. Not just physical presence but presence of mind, heart, and spirit. When you give of your time, you can’t get it back. Therefore, your presence is the greatest gift you can offer another.
