A Tricky Thing – Later


It’s always what’s in front we want. It’s only later we understand the ‘why’ and the ‘what for’ was the wait.

Easier said than done.

Now speaks only now.  “Give me now.  I need what is in front of me now.”  Now can barely conceive other possibilities in other times.  Our senses bind us to the present.  We are creatures of it.

It is a tricky thing indeed this notion of later, this notion of other choices, this notion that other things may be as good, may be better.  Now is screaming now.  Now is screaming there is nothing better than now.  Now is screaming don’t let go, don’t risk.  It is a tricky thing indeed to act with all the self towards now but to surrender to what occurs and then to wait for the later to explain what just happened.  It is a tricky thing indeed this notion of later.  For actions are all in the moment but what wisdom they hold is all in the later.  Later we see what came before.
