If You Knew...
If You Knew
If you knew
you had one year left
to really live…
What amends would you make?
What dreams would
you no longer forsake?
It’s normal to have regrets,
but we don’t have to forget
our long-held loves, or
push them aside because
someone didn’t agree
and said otherwise.
It’s okay. It happens.
And… here we are Now
awake with our eyes wide open,
devoted to whatever it takes
to see what’s true
and clearly know
what we dearly want
to be and do.
So, if you knew
you had one year left,
would you be okay
at the end with
what might have been?
Or, would you rather know
each and every day that you
prevailed... stayed true to
march with the drum of your heart?
How different this world could be
if we dropped the way we second-guess
and doubt that we have done our best
with what we start or end or recreate,
in learning there are no mistakes.
So swift our conscious shift could go
if we chose to trust the flow of life
fell into stride with the lead of Love’s call
and followed the guidance of Goodness
that, indeed, lives within us all.
If you knew
you had just one year left,
to live the greatest version of your being
giving yourself to the vital things…
abundant health of people and planet,
breathing life into the glorious gamut
of our loves and dreams,
serving life and all that means

p.s. May we attune to the Infinite One we are in perfect unity, now and always.
