Now, Today, And Always
By Joseph J. Mazzella • February 28, 2018
I have a little clock on the bottom right hand side of my computer screen that always tells me what time it is. I also have a clock hanging on my wall. I have two alarm clocks in my bedroom. I have a clock in my car. Every time I look at my cell phone or house phone too, there is the time looking up at me. But the older I get the less I find myself paying attention to any of them. I stopped wearing a watch years ago and don’t miss it at all. These days I try to live my life as timelessly as possible; which isn’t easy in our modern society. Yet, it has made such a major difference for me. It has allowed me to embrace each moment as it comes. I know too that whatever it says on that clock on the wall, it is always Now.
It took me a long time to realize this and I still forget it from time to time. Now that I have passed the half century mark in my own life, however, I have started to cherish each day and every second that God gives me on this Earth. I know that I will never have time to do all that I want to do but at least I can live today in love. Today I can spend my morning in prayer. Today I can look at the sun shining in the sky and feel its warmth on my face. Today I can give my sons and daughter a hug. Today I can play fetch with my dog and revel in his delight. Today I can laugh at a good joke and share a warm smile. Today I can quietly commit an unseen act of kindness. Today I can write a few words that will touch a few hearts.
There is an old Hindu saying that goes: “Yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow only a vision; but today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope.” Make sure your today is well lived then. Make sure your Now is filled with love and joy. If you do this your past will be beautiful, your future will be wonderful, and your eternity will be spent in God’s loving arms.
