“Something grand is before you. Miniscule is not before you. Miniscule is behind you. That is why you must not keep returning to the past. You will miss the present. You really don’t want to miss the present. The present is presented to you. I present it to you right now. I present an unopened package of wonders, and it has to be opened right away, or the moment is gone.
Pull the little ribbon of time that seems to box it. In truth, it is a steady pulling of the ribbon. You pull it, and it slips from its knot and unwinds itself before your very eyes. And, with a gasp of joy, you remove the cover the ribbon held loosely, for life is given to you in breaths and in amazement.
And yet, sometimes you are sad with the gift of life and do not welcome it, this gift of life from God, the highest gift bestowed upon you from the Highest of All. You were thinking of one thing, and I another, so your eyes beheld disappointment, and you thought that something was withheld from you. Nothing is withheld from you. You withhold from yourself. Behold. Whatever is before you is a gift. And you must find its treasure.”
Gloria Wendroff, in “Heavenletters”
