Magic of the Now

Close your eyes and go deep within

Let the music carry you to the edge

And over

Softly as you embrace the deep waters

of your soul

Hear voices of purity echoing against the wind

Messages in a higher language

Purity and beauty that only your soul can know

Breathe in slowly as the shadows lenghten

Do not be of fear but of strength

As you face your inner demon

Who isn’t a demon at all, but a piece of you

That was broken off by hurt and agony

See past the darkness and know thyself

Embrace yourself in the magic of the now

Only you can choose healing for your soul.

Even God needs your permission so grant it

Open that door and believe

You are whole

You are loved

You are free

You are blessed

Breathe in and see with your eyes closed

Who you really are

Rise up and fly

And realize that every moment

Is a part of the magic of the now.

You are the magic of the now

Embrace yourself and be whole
