Imagine...For a Moment

I received this recently via email. It was written by David Ault, and is a beautiful reminder of what it means to be in the present moment and all that it could offer...

For a Moment

For a moment every eye sees a petal
begin its journey from stem to ground.

and in that thimble full of time
where all worry becomes extinct -

all futurizing over what might be
or what could happen ceases,

then the world, in relaxation,
unites in the joy of the now.

Yes, imagine for a moment
there is no worry.

For a moment every inhale welcomes
wellness and the world feels relief

from the accompanying pains of disease.
The air hums with the sigh

of billions expressing their collective relief.
Yes, imagine for a moment
there is no pain.

For a moment everybody wins
and the victory circle is electric with the hugs,

handshakes and prayerful bows
of authentic acknowledgment.

It is the delicious moment when every mind
with every heart conceives the truth

that there is more than enough for all.
Yes, imagine a moment
that everybody wins.

For a moment all are able to forgive
every thing and every one

from every page of the past;
every thought of separation,

every grievance and grudge.
Brother understands brother -

sister their sister; child understands parent
and parent their child

and the world is awash with liberation.
Yes, imagine for a moment
that all forgive.

For a moment there is no hunger
and the bellies of all children and adults

are filled with the precise nourishment
their body is craving.

Food is equal portioned and equally shared
and all races and religion

discover that by sharing,
one need never suffers from hunger again.

Yes, imagine for a moment
there is an end to hunger.

For a moment every person,
everywhere is active in their passion -

doing what they love.
Self doubt has evaporated and each heart

beats with the rhythm of confidence.
Creativity is a sacred act

for the soul without concern
for recompense or approval.

Time and deadline is replaced with
being lost in the joy
of doing what one loves.

Yes, imagine for a moment
that everyone is living their passion.
