Power of Now by Faith Rivera

I am in love with this song… (video a bit shaky, but it’s the music that matters).

The power of now Is always present
Nowhere to be
Than where you are
The power of now
Flows oh so gracefully

The power of now
Is always perfect
Nothing to Be
Than who you are
The power of now
Flows oh so beautifully

Be willing to let go Of everything you think you need to know
Be strong enough to let go Of everything you think you need to control
For everything goes away
Let everything wash away

The power of now….

The power of now Is ever flowing
Connecting us all
To the One
The power of now
Unfolds so peacefully

Be willing to let go of everything you think you need to know
Be strong enough to let go of everything you think you need to control
For everything goes away
Let everything wash away

The power of now….

Child of the universe

This makes my soul sing!

I am a child of this universe
The ocean dances at my feet
The wind plays a melody through my hair
I am loved at every turn
I am kissed by Mother Earth

I am a child of this universe
The sun warms me in its embrace
The stars have a light for me in the sky
I am honoured by all light
I am held by Father Time

Every blade of grass
Every shaking leaf on the tree
Every mountain top
Sings like the glory of God
moving through me

I am a child of this universe
In my breath all of life can bring
I plant the seeds with my every drape
I can love at every turn
Give a kiss to Mother Earth

Yes I am a child on this universe
I greet  the cloud in its each phase
I am a channel for peaceful thought
I honour all the light
Yes I move with Father Time

To every blade of grass
To every shaking leaf on the tree
To every mountain top
I see the glory of God
moving through all

moving through me

moving through you

Dear little boy,

I just want to thank you for your presence in my life. You bring joy to everyone around you with your funny dances, your laughter which sounds like rainbow bubbles bouncing against each other, your musical voice that is clear and sweet like crystal bells.

I do get frustrated with you sometimes when you have demands which seem unreasonable by my standards. Like today, when i bought guava slices, you insisted that i do not eat it and that Papa should eat them instead. I initially obliged, but when you kept on fussing about it and even wanted to take the guava slices away, i became angry. I’m sorry dear… it’s really tough to understand you when you are fussing and whining, and when I don’t understand, i get frustrated. I’m also learning to handle my emotions, and I must say, you are giving me wonderful opportunities to do that.

After some tapping, i did calm down and we sat down for a while beside the road since you were tired and I wanted to settle myself as well. You wanted to sit on my lap for a hug. Perhaps you sensed some dissonance in my energy this morning and you were reacting to that. Anyway, with the tapping, i was more present with myself and I realised that part of my frustration came from missing the deep sense of connection I had with myself in Penang, that was hard to sustain here at home.

I told you, “Little boy, I miss Penang.”

With your head against my shoulder, you gave the tiniest nod of acknowledgment.

“I want to go back.”

Again, you nodded your acceptance of my statement.

It was the first time that I shared my feelings with you in this way, and I was very touched that you were so understanding of my feelings, like an adult.

Of cos, being the cheerful spirit you were, you didn’t let me dwell too much into my feelings. A second later, you jumped off my lap wanting to scare away a little sparrow that was in the nearby bushes. That broke the sombre mood, and we continued on our way to school, both feeling much lighter and definitely more connected with each other.

Thank you little boy… for being the special boy that you are, and for loving me as just I am, imperfections and all.

Much love,
