Being here now – which way shall we face?

Being here now in this place, at this time, we have choices.

We can look behind and try to find our way back.

Or we can find comfort in the now. And block out the consequences of what we do or say because it’s not our responsibility.

Or we can face the uncertainty of the future, embracing our mix of fear and excitement. Being prepared to enter the flow, with hope and grace and wisdom as our companions.

We cannot step into the future and avoid being here in this place at this time, but we can adopt a posture of leaning slightly forward.
