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
