Poem: Awakening Now

Why wait for your awakening?..
Would you hold back when the Beloved beckons?..
“No, I can’t step across the
threshold,” you say, eyes
downcast. “I’m not worthy…I’m not perfect.”..
Do you value your
reasons for staying small more
than the light shining through
the open door? Forgive yourself.
Forgive yourself.
Now is the only time you have
to be whole. Now is the sole
moment that exists to live in
the radiance of your true nature.
Perfection is not a prerequisite
for anything but pain. Please,
oh please, don’t continue to
believe in your stories of
separation and failure.
This is the day of your awakening.
