Living My Now

by Mark Seaman


The PAST calls to me.

Like the sirens' call beckoning me backward.

The draw of glories lost and regrets not forgotten.

The feeling of loss can bring a deep sadness.

If fully embraced the path leads to the despair of self-pity.


The FUTURE calls to me.

Like the sirens' call beckoning me forward.

The draw of imagined glories that are beyond my grasp.

The feeling of anxiety turns to a gripping fear.

If fully embraced the path leads to dread and panic.


The PRESENT calls to me.

Love, Joy, and Peace live in the NOW.

I choose to be fully alive right NOW.

I will trade the Sadness of the Past for the Joy of NOW.

I will trade the Fear of the Future for the Peace of NOW.

As I become AWARE of myself and others, I touch ETERNITY.

I choose to be fully alive right NOW.
