“Have we not all one Father?”

--Malachi 2:10

This morning I was struck, again, by this forceful thought: the power of each present moment is infinite. I’m not sure why that thought, which I have often pondered, felt so overpowering this morning, but it definitely did. As I stood in the bathroom shaving, I felt like I was part of an immeasurable force, one that has been exerting its steady and irresistible power for untold eons. It’s a power that seems to exist in time, over zillions of year, but actually it exists only in the present moment – right now. Absolutely all of this inestimable power – the “Father” that Malachi speaks of -- is present in each split second of life. It’s an astonishing truth to consider, one that makes shaving at 6:04 a.m. an especially notable experience.
