Meditation – Everything is Holy Now

What is it we want to experience as we live our lives, day-by-day?  What does life look like from our heart’s point of view?  What does “Come-To-The-Edge-Today” living look like?   What is its essence?

I could spend 500 words trying to describe it, but couldn’t do it justice; so, I decided to share with you the best expression I found that exemplifies the spirit of our inner voice – the spirit of  “Come-to-the-Edge-Today” living  – “Holy Now” by Peter Mayer.

 

“Holy Now”   *** See lyrics below   ..       (video by medearest)

Today’s “leaping exercise”:  Allow yourself 15 minutes of uninterrupted time for meditation and inspiration.  Find a comfortable spot and close your eyes.  Listen to this meditation three times.  The first time, listen with your eyes closed.  The second, watch the video.  The third, whichever you are inspired to do – either with eyes closed or open.  I am certain you will be touched by “Holy Now”, so when complete, write your inspiration in your journal.  Relax and be absorbed by it!  Listen at least three times per week.

What I’ve discovered is that daring to “leap” and live life fully means being open to seeing and experiencing EVERYTHING differently.  Does this change come overnight?  No, and that’s ok.  That’s what life’s journey is about!

Holy Now by Peter Mayer

When I was a boy, each week
On Sunday, we would go to church
And pay attention to the priest
He would read the holy word
And consecrate the holy bread
And everyone would kneel and bow
Today the only difference is
Everything is holy now
Everything, everything
Everything is holy now

When I was in Sunday school
We would learn about the time
Moses split the sea in two
Jesus made the water wine
And I remember feeling sad
That miracles don’t happen still
But now I can’t keep track
‘Cause everything’s a miracle
Everything, Everything
Everything’s a miracle

Wine from water is not so small
But an even better magic trick
Is that anything is here at all
So the challenging thing becomes
Not to look for miracles
But finding where there isn’t one

When holy water was rare at best
It barely wet my fingertips
But now I have to hold my breath
Like I’m swimming in a sea of it
It used to be a world half there
Heaven’s second rate hand-me-down
But I walk it with a reverent air
‘Cause everything is holy now
Everything, everything
Everything is holy now

Read a questioning child’s face
And say it’s not a testament
That’d be very hard to say
See another new morning come
And say it’s not a sacrament
I tell you that it can’t be done

This morning, outside I stood
And saw a little red-winged bird
Shining like a burning bush
Singing like a scripture verse
It made me want to bow my head
I remember when church let out
How things have changed since then
Everything is holy now
It used to be a world half-there
Heaven’s second rate hand-me-down
But I walk it with a reverent air
‘Cause everything is holy now
