Loving this moment and life.

As one experiences life’s challenges, one also automatically values life like never before and values what life offers. Its beauty, its laughter, the chill in the blowing wind, the pink carnations. A good time, the emotions of joy and excitement are all the more ripe and full, for we’ve also seen how poignant life can get.

We’re here for a little while .We must remember that we don’t know how the winds will change and when a storm will rock our boats and rattle our sails. When this happens the effort will be solely on survival, on keeping the boat afloat, not falling off ourselves and helping our fellow sailors and crew whilst no one looses their minds. That is also a worthy struggle, a noble struggle that is the dignity and depth of life.

Yet , that is another story. Now when the sea is somewhat calm, when we sail with ease, we enjoy every bit of every moment. Yes, the storm that came has left its scars and its wisdom. Yes, I feel that the wind is still heavy and new waters await, bringing with them some tumultuous waves and whatever else the unknown wishes to bring with it. Yes, I know , there will be some more storms to brave.The boat is rocky, a little cracked but the spirit is intact.

For now, these words are about the moment. And about valuing and loving it, fully, completely , with wild abandon loving what is – now and thoroughly enjoying it. The sun, the clouds, the lovely fish, the watches, the clothes, the gripping TV drama, the colourful malls, the good music and Chinese food, this blog, my friends and family, quest for Light- EVERYTHING. Yes, even the hard times,for they humble us, they teach us , they make us grow, and live with compassion and kindness-towards all life.

When we can , we value it and enjoy it, and truly live- in this terrific moment and enjoy everything that seems even more fantastic in it. Indeed, I am grateful for it and for valuing it. Challenges and storms have taught me this -to smile and laugh, with all my heart.  The moment that is hard is important too, and when it comes I will value it and be grateful for what it teaches me and be in it  fully too, learning, living, realizing the power of giving.

For now, I hold onto and love this moment- a little more now.

With much gratitude,

Uzma

    Ah Uzma, this exudes gratitude. Thank you. A friend recently told me, after learning she does not have Cancer, that she’s been living in the “pin prick point of present”. It is so full of peace and freedom.
