Be Here Now

Be Here Now.

Really been digging Mason Jennings’ record “Boneclouds”. The first song is titled “Be Here Now”….and it’s fucking amazing. It really hits home, and I thought that I’d share it with you all. These aren’t all the lyrics, but it’s what I’ve jotted down from listening to the song over and over and over again.

Be here now
No other place to be
Just sit here dreaming
Of how life would be
If we were somewhere better
Somewhere far
Away from all our worries
Well, here we are.
Be here now
No other place to be
All the doubts that linger
Set them free
And let good things happen
Let the future come
In to each moment, like the rising sun
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Sun comes up and we start again
Its all new today
All we have to say is…
Be here now.
No other place to be
This whole world keeps changing
Come change with me
Everything that’s happened
All that’s yet to come
Is here inside this moment
It’s the only one.
Be here now.

Wow. Chills. Up and down my spine. Mr.Jennings, you sure are spot on. Be here now. My last week in Costa all I could think about was Mexico, and now that I’m in Mex all I can think about is California and what I have to do when I get home, I need to take a step back and just be here NOW. It’s like at the end of yoga class when we’re laying in Savasana. This final pose is to just be in the moment, absorb all that you’ve done and simply enjoy. Don’t worry about what you’re doing after class, a fight you had the night before, or the mile long chore list you have….just be.
