Savouring the moment

Matthew 9:14-15
The Question about Fasting
Then the disciples of John came to him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?” And Jesus said to them, “The wedding guests cannot mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them, can they? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.

In any day
In any hour
If we are connected
If we are passionate,
Compassionate beings
We move through 
the whole gamut of emotions
Sorrow, joy, insight, bewilderment,
All out there
All within us
Ready to be embraced
or allowed to emerge
All full of health
Life giving
Unless we suppress our feelings
And then we are assailed 
by dis-ease
Living for the moment
brings a life of its own
and allows what is hidden
to emerge
and be changed by the light
when the time is right.
