The Power of a Moment

Right Here

by Dane Anthony

Stop moving. Stand in one place – this place. Breathe slowly; in, then out. Repeat.

Repeat again. Let your shoulders sink and relax. Unclench your jaw; slowly close your eyes.

Listen for your heartbeat; really listen. Feel it pulse in your fingertips.

Lessen expectations. Under-do all your efforts. Requisition the time for your soul

to catch up. Lean into the wind; feel it like a tree and test the ground.

Learn to trust the resilience. It would be treason to move quickly – left or right –

from this place. It is alright to be exactly what you are, who you are, where you are. Right here, right now.
