the infinite today

instead of eschewing the past
(so much focus on "living in the Now")
ignoring it as illusion
or "over"

another option:
recognizing that past moments linger
both in the body
and in timelines
see that at some level
the past is still happening!

helpful hint:
go back to the pain points
& wrap them in a blanket of comforting love

make this a habit
and one day
in a moment of forgetting
you may find yourself embraced and lifted
by a brighter & wiser version
of your Self
