when you’ve had enough of fantasy,
you can dare to be here now.
when you’ve had enough of pretend,
you can embrace what is.
when you’ve had enough of false pretense,
you can allow yourself to be as you are.
when you’ve had enough of the endless rat race,
you can come back home to the love that never dies.
when you can’t stand to be fake anymore,
you can let yourself be, breathe, feel, release…
to Dare to Be Present
looks like nothing and yet it is everything.
there may not be support around you for that.
we are in a world that has somehow alienated itself
from the Presence that Nature gives,
the Presence the animals are always in,
the Presence that children have not lost yet.
to Dare to Be Present is not a promise of nirvana,
although Presence is certainly where nirvana lives.
to Dare to Be Present is not a promise of everlasting bliss,
although, if there is such a thing, it surely belongs to The Eternal Now.
to Dare to Be Present is to dare to be real.
I am here to support you in this.
Why? Because it is who I am, and because
There is nothing more meaningful I can find to offer You.
