"Saying YES to this moment doesn't mean giving up on change. Not at all.
Saying YES to now doesn't mean that the next moment won't come. It
doesn't mean that answers won't arrive, that sadness won't disappear,
that pain won't ease, that intelligent action won't happen, that
solutions won't make themselves known. It means a total alignment with
the intelligence of an entire universe.
We are called to enter
the world from a place of allowing, not resistance; from an inner yes,
not an inner no. We are invited to not run away from the present scene
of the movie of our lives. We know deep down that there is ONLY the
present scene, and past and future scenes are just present memories and
dreams, part of the present scene.
Instead of trying to skip to certainty, trust the uncertainty of the
moment. Instead of rushing towards answers, trust this creative place of
no answers. Instead of trying to run towards joy or bliss, trust this
moment of sorrow or doubt, or whatever shape the intelligence is taking.
Certainty may come, answers may arrive, joy may burst forth, thrilling
moments may present themselves sooner or later, but don't skip over the
treasures of this moment.
If certainty comes, it will come
from a place of allowing. If answers come, they will grow out of wonder.
If joy shows her face, she will grow from the fertiliser of pain. If a
new life grows, it will grow in the only birthplace there is: Here.
This moment is the access point, the portal, the gateway to all that you long for."
