Living In The Now


“Forever is composed of nows.”
Emily Dickinson

Are you living in the present, are you living where life is happening? The past and future are illusions, they do not exist. As the saying goes ‘tomorrow never comes’. Tomorrow is only a concept, tomorrow is always waiting to come around the corner, but around that corner are shadows, never to have light shed upon, because time is always now.

If we worry about what might be, and wonder what might have been, we will ignore what is.

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, he answered;

“Man…. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

Are you waiting to live?……Start living... it is later than you think.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
