Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the “present.” ~ Babatunde Olatunji ~
“In magic – and in life – there is only the present moment, the now. You can’t measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. ‘Time’ doesn’t pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; we’re always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didn’t act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what we’re going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we don’t want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.” ~ Paulo Coelho, Aleph ~
To live in the “Now,” you must be with your thoughts as they are. We have a world at our fingertips. Instead of letting our life go by without living it, we should awaken to the experience. Let’s focus less on what’s going on in our mind and more on what’s going on around us. Seize the day, don’t worry about the future. We all need to focus on today. Our awareness should be centered on the here and now. This is where life is happening. Life is short and time is fleeting. Become aware of being alive for the “Present” is all we really have.
