Now is the time

Don’t let the jewels remain buried
at the bottom of the ocean

Dive deep
Hold your breath
Let another breath breathe you

Let the breath of the universe
propel you ever deeper
into the mystery of Being

Surrendering to the unknown
as it unfolds in your life

Moment by moment

Miracle by miracle

What jewels will you bring
to the surface to share with the world?

What gold did you find hidden
in the depths of the darkness?

Wear it as a crown,
a symbol of the wisdom
and power discovered
in the depths of your Being

Let the voice of love
find its expression
through your heart
broken or unbroken

No need to wait for perfection
to let your light shine
You’re already reflecting
the perfect light

Let the heart of compassion
flow as a river of mercy
into the wounds of humanity

Now is the time

Now is the time

Now is the time
