No Escape

Standard

Here we are.
It is the present moment
and there is no escape.
As much as our minds
might try to convince us otherwise,
there is no past and no future–
there is only this moment
and there is no escape.
Isn’t it a relief to finally arrive,
standing here with your whole self
in this one inescapable moment?
Terrifying and sweet all at once
knowing that all we ever were
all that we are now
and all that we ever will be
are all one, unified as this one totality,
this one present moment,
now.
Turn and face your fear.
When you can see beyond
the story you painted on top of it,
you’ll be able to touch
the raw energy
of it all.
It is in this tender place
that we can connect with all beings.
We can remember that we were never disconnected,
never alone
realizing that there is only ever
this one moment
and there is no escape.
