Knowing Now

How can we trust what we know,

what we think we know,

what we once knew?

The knowing dissipates.

Facts disappear into the fabled

mists of memory.

Mischievous mind churns facts into butter.

Feelings diffuse like moonlight

through rippled glass.

If we can't count on facts,

can't rely on feelings (since both, facts and feelings alike, are filtered through fading memory)

then what can we trust?


Why, as usual, nothing but the now.

Get used to it.

Accept the new now reality.

Just be here.

It's the only way through.

Remember this,

if you remember nothing else.
