Promise of a new Day

Perhaps this very instant is your time… your own, your peculiar, your promised and presaged moment, out of all moments forever. —Louise Bogan…

“This very instant” is all we have. We make plans for the future, we invoke memories of the past, but really, all we have to deal with and to act in is the moment at hand. We cannot stop its going; we cannot hurry the next moment on its way. Like everyone else in the world, we’re partners in the dull, humdrum, dazzling, fabulous, totally unpredictable moment. And if we have a time that is “our time,” it’s right now. It has to be, because there isn’t any other. Maybe we’ve had times in the past that were special for us; maybe the future will hold precious moments. But the only time that is truly “our time” is this time where we are, right now. And what we do with this time is ours to decide.
Each moment is mine, to make as beautiful or as painful as I choose.

For Us, It Is A Result Of The Promises, We Are Grateful.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
