Using the moment

Quote

There are two days in the year that you can’t do anything. The one is called “yesterday” and the other is called “tomorrow”. Today is the only right day to love, pray and mostly live.

Tenzin Gyatso

Past, Future and Present

Quote

Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.

Enjoying the present

Life is a beautiful gift. Don’t reject the present.

Recognize yourself?

You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking how you’ll escape one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.

Laugh out loud

Take a moment, think about this moment, about yourself, about the world, humanity, about this exact moment in life.

When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.

Be present

I think the problem is that people spend so much time worrying about what might happen, what might go wrong, that they completely lose sight of the present. They completely overlook the fact that, actually, right now, everything’s perfectly fine.

So the trick, whenever possible, I propose, is to stop your brain from running on ahead of you.
