Being Fully Present

Memory loss
can be a two edged sword.

One edge cutting away
all that’s no longer desired
all that no longer resonates with
my new expanded consciousness

The other edge is cutting away
daily routines and mindless habits
along with lifetime friends and family
in support of the old memories

One we judge as advantageous
the other disruptive
and yet. . .
are they not both of value?

For both force us to be
fully present in the now moment
where antiquated
memory, habits, and beliefs
are no longer running our lives.

So next time my mind blanks out
forgetting what I was doing
I have to ask:
Was it even important?

If not, it will simply
disappear from my life
allowing space for
something new and more vital

And if it’s important
it will cycle back around
and be fully present with me
at the exact appropriate moment. 

Therefore I can be at peace
with the perfect flow of life
knowing this moment
is the only one that matters.
