“… all you do is sacred.”
Now is the time
Now is the time to know
That all that you do is sacred.
Now is the time for the world to know
That every thought and action is sacred.
This is the time
For you to deeply compute the impossibility
That there is anything
Now is the season to know
That everything you do
Edited poem Now Is The Time, from: The Gift
