Living in the NOW…True Freedom

Living in the NOW...True Freedom
Living in the NOW…True Freedom

Can it be the freedom of worry-less resolve,
when faith supersedes our petty concerns:
our human paranoia and penchant for constancy,
abiding change in assimilable portions.

But when a careless abandon takes hold,
and we believe what will be will be,
freedom marks our thoughts and actions,
allowing life to not be impeded by our fears.

Living in the present is an art,
a way of thinking where we are untethered
from past and future concerns,
rather, immersed in momentary reality,
second by second in full awareness.

True freedom is sought
more than any other state, because
restrictions inhibit our wants and goals,
and the only way to achieve this
is living in the now.

In a flat even playing field,
all considerations are visible,
as in that moment we can assess
and deal with each obstacle
and challenge presented.

Fears, past loss and biases
are set aside in our present moment, we,
meeting reality head on and in balance
to make informed decisions unencumbered
by irrelevant predilections.

The freedom of this circumstance
is not totally evident
until we think only in the now,
and the less stress from past and future considerations
helps us observe clarity in our thinking.

Clarity thus helps our understanding
and therefore addresses our decisions,
giving us the advantage of insight,
and choices that benefit our lives
more completely.

    Living in the moment does render us free from what was or what is to be. That is true freedom, Tony, and you express it so well with excellent definition. Well done. Take care dear friend.
