Closing or Opening

Just read this on Taylor McKnight's blog and it really resonated with me. It was written by his mom, I just added line breaks and some emphasis as I saw fit.

Right now, and in every now-moment, you are either closing or opening.

You are either stressfully waiting for something – more money, security, affection – or you are living from your deep heart, opening as the entire moment, and giving what you most deeply desire to give, without waiting.

If you are waiting for anything in order to live and love without holding back, then you suffer. Every moment is the most important moment of your life. No future time is better than now to let down your guard and love.

Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom.

Your every act can open hearts and minds. Opening from heart to all, you live as a gift to all. In every moment, you are either opening or closing. Right now, you are choosing to open and give fully or you are waiting.

How does your choice feel?

it's one of those things that you read, and want to remember when the time comes that you forget!

Wow...that was slightly convicting.

That was exactly what I didn't want to hear but totally needed to hear. Most excellent.

This still stops me in my tracks. I needed this right now.
