"Just for Now", a poem by Danna Faulds

Just for Now,


Without asking how, let yourself sink into stillness.


Just for now, lay down the weight


You so patiently bear upon your shoulders.



Feel the earth receive you,


And the infinite expanse of the sky grow even wider,


as your awareness reaches up to meet it.



Just for now,


Allow a wave of breath to enliven your experience.


Breathe out whatever blocks you from the truth.



Just for now,


Be boundless, free, with awakened energy tingling in your hands and feet.


Drink in the possibility


Of being who and what you really are –


So fully alive that the world looks different,


Newly born and vibrant, just for now.
