In one moment of pure presence

In one moment of pure presence, the ancient groove of fight-flight is illuminated and re-organized. You need neither deny what is appearing nor must you urgently seek relief from it. For love would never ask you to abandon the fires of immediacy.

Practice soothing intimacy and surround the emissaries of integration with tenderness, kindness, and sensitive, naked awareness. The movement of feeling and sensation have come as sacred data, lighting up your torso and your nervous system, and setting ablaze pathways of intelligence within you.

There is no aliveness in the next moment, no love arriving tomorrow, and no grace in the future. The aliveness you are longing for is always, already here – and will never be discovered by means of a weary search. It will only be revealed through embodiment to wild vulnerability in all its forms.
