Being in the moment

Our minds have a tendency to loose track of the moment and worry about the past or the future. All that is needed to find joy and peace and be whole is to reunite our thoughts with our bodies and truly be present in the miracle that is now.

I came across an old quote by Eleanor Roosevelt today which conveys the same message in a very short, simple and playfully humorous way:

"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift, that's why it is called the present."

Enjoy the present.



  2. Thanks. This looks like a wonderful resource.

  3. Let's do an experiment. Close your eyes, can you locate a thinker who thinks, or there is only thinking?

  4. Depends. If you get engrossed in your thoughts, the thinker disappears and only the thoughts remain; if not, the feeling of self is still there.
