Life Is Only This Breath

Now is our only chance to be happy, to be at peace.
Now is our only chance to pay attention, to allow our hearts and minds to be completely open and free. Everything else is just the play of memory, an indulgence in isolation, in self centered and self destructive fantasy. Now is our only chance to be kind, to be wise.
Now is our only chance to give ourselves to the tender joy of affection and compassion, to the gentle intimacy of honesty, openness, and humility.

Every body hurts. Every body feels isolated and lonely, with our separate labels and our separate lives. Yet we are all the very same Self. Why continue to pretend otherwise? Why pretend at all?

-Your own Self-
