There is no Time like the Present

Written for Coven Life

By Priestess Hypatia


In the course of a couple of weeks humanity has changed in an unprecedented rate sparking mass global fear, confusion, anger, paranoia, hate, racism and frenzy are just to name a few.

Now I say humanity as the earth itself, the Great Mother and the Great Father is going about business as usual. In fact a break from humanity is allowing Gaia to once again thrive. Our imagined role as the ‘superior species’ is becoming more and more evident that we are truly all connected, one species is no more important than the other. This delicate balance of the ‘Web of Life’ is something ancient cultures have spoken of since the beginning of our walk on this earth. Those still practicing the old religion and ancient spiritual practices are in a space of understanding that goes beyond space and time, it is between the past- what once was and the future- what will be. There is ‘NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT’.  This is where it all happens!

“Now is the only reality. All else is either memory or Imagination”


This global pickle we are in has us looking in the past for answers to deal with why this is happening to us. What we could of, should of and didn’t do, who we didn’t listen to, who we can blame and why we didn’t do it.

Then there are the post viral predictions pushing humanity to only speculate and postulate of how this can and might possibly pan out. There is one thing that I can be certain of and that is, nothing is more certain than the present, nothing is more real to humanity than ‘the here and now’.

Over the next couple of articles I will be helping you remember some helpful words (in no particular order) that have and assist me and may also assist you in regaining your focus in your present moment. Helping you to remember that a mindful practice is more needed now than ever before. We are all in this together!

“Let us learn to live mindfully in the present as the only reality in NOW”


  1. Observe-

Through this practice we can gain a new understanding of our surroundings. At this present time most people really have no choice but to observe.

Global directive of practicing self-isolation, social distancing and working from home encourages us to pay attention to our immediate surroundings. Our here and now, in our home, in our head, in our family. This is a good time to take a step back and see what is really happening in the here and now.

Surrender to the experience and in the process you may even discover your truth. Release and trust the process and begin to have faith in the here and now. This is a good time to be patient, all things have a cycle and there is a time and place for everything, unfortunately it also includes this unprecedented evolutionary crisis.

Observation can allow you to gain a new perspective on a situation, open your mind and your heart and begin to bring in energies of awareness and transformation.


“I now take a step back and observe my situation in a new light”
