this is no time for timid hearts (classic)

I have been attempting for days, weeks! to update you on my twisting, turning journey the last couple of months. Now, of course, it all feels prehistoric — with a “Who Cares?”quality attached to it.

For today – and the days to come – “this is no time for timid hearts.” ‘Nuff said. Do what makes your heart happy. No matter how it looks on the outside; no matter whether others understand or embrace you for it. The stirrings of your heart reflect your most reliable, highest-value barometer.

This is no time for timid hearts
For holding back your most precious gifts in the face of fear of retribution
For wedging yourself into a doorway while you wonder
if you are worthy of entrance
For sitting interminably on a fence whose only purpose is
to separate you from your very self
This is no time

This is no time to utter whatever from a place of rarefied observation
To be carried along buoyed by neither aim nor intention
To let life live you blithely while you relinquish your birthright of free will
To sanction guilt and obligation as they hold sway
over your most fervent desires,
This is no time

This is no time for equivocation, for hedging and backsliding
For whimpering and decrying all that you have created
For playing victim to predators of any stripe, be they real or illusory
For abdicating personal responsibility in the face of a
preponderance of evidence,
If ever there was a time, it is not now

For forthright declaration of your deepest truths
This is the time
For standing your ground for causes that bear the mantle of justice
This is the time
For fostering unadulterated freedom that rings out
above the screech of politics and posturing,
For inaugurating new byways of sustainable evolution
by lifting one hand after another
For redeeming without hesitation the wonderful
that you believed was gone forever
This, right now, is the time

This is not the time to take the bait of vulturous fearmongers
To withhold the emanations of your frangible heart
To stockpile the succulent flowerings of your soul
To hurl at others the boomerang of judgment or culpability
(lest it return to its rightful owner)
This is not the time

If you have ever yearned to unleash your passions
Ached to be exponentially more than you have dared to be
Hungered for a greater humanity within and without
Longed for connection that defies the so-called bounds
of time and space
And have known for eternity that you were born to be Love,

Today
Right here
Right now
This is the time.

    Good Morning Rachel ~ Did you see that Steve Beckow posted this on 2012Scenario? http://the2012scenario.com/2012/12/rachel-snyder-this-is-no-time-for-timid-hearts/

    So much love in the air this morning, 12-21-12 here on the Southern Oregon Coast! A whole flock of goldfinches just descended onto our small yard, onto the two feeders we have – this is unusual as at this time of year we normally have only two or three if at all.

    Much Love from Gold Beach Oregon!
    Tomas
