The Infinite Present is holding you infinitely.
It cannot stop holding you.
It is always holding you.
I do not know why the world is as it is.
I do not know why human suffering is pervasive.
I do not know why this culture is lost in the mind,
Disregarding the body, and alienated from the heart.
I would like to know why, but I don’t.
The Love is always holding you.
It is holding you when you don’t feel it.
It is holding you when you are tired of it all.
It is holding you when you’ve had enough.
It is even holding you when you don’t see a way out.
The reason it is a dare to be present is because
So much of what we’re in is insisting that we not be present.
Even so much of the new-age movement is still in that insistence
To move away from the open mystery of what is.
And yet The Present always insists more strongly.
Insists that you notice it, and enter into it, and return to it.
I dare you to be present.
Because anything that is real is in The Now.
Any possibility of transformation is in The Now.
Any possibility of peace with oneself is in The Now.
If you are present, sooner or later you will confront yourself.
You will confront anything about yourself you are not comfortable with.
That is okay. The wholeness of The Now supports that.
And there will always be This Love holding you.
The Love that is the mystery of life.
The Love that is the mystery of consciousness.
The Love that never stops loving you.
The Endless Love that sometimes has no name or face,
Yet nonetheless remains, remains, remains.
