Love and the Heart’s Desires

One must live in the ‘now’
for therein lies all that
may be truly real and
the only comfort.

Witness this truth in harmony
with the wisdom of nature
at this, the center of time.

There is only living life
no path to discover how.

Ultimately, we are kept alive
only by Love and the heart’s
    finest desires

Yes, my fellow writer, the "now" is basically all we have. The future is not guaranteed.

The 'past' is, of course, irrevocable ... the 'future' powerless to be born ...
we have only the 'now' (of infinite positive potential) in which to paint this
world in bright-delicious colors !

I do so agree with this.
"Witness this truth in harmony
with the wisdom of nature"
So much to be learned.
Very nicely expressed throughout.

true love never looks after it's own interests
