This now that stands so massive and real
between the illusions of past and future
is always the only reality
timeless and immobile.

And we, normally, flicker in and out of now
captivated moment by moment
with passing mental images
and memories and imaginations
of where we are not now.
Our attention span strobing invisibly on and off.
That which is broken cannot meet the unbroken.

Sometimes, we cannot wait
because the changes come so fast.
And other we times can wait
but really, we're only waiting to wait.
And then, sometimes, we wait
and the waiting becomes one.

In this wait, the waiting becomes a fall,
it becomes a moment,
it becomes an awareness
and these blossom endlessly and seamlessly together
and all embracingly.

Here, the moment becomes one
and expands
absorbing all consciousness;
no in, no out, no you, no it.

Past and future vanish
when you become one with now.
The flickering attention span
comes to ground singing
the eternal OM.
