how it benefits us and how it might benefit the world.
The story I tell here is one I wrote in response to a woman who asked the question, "I wonder what the world would be like if we raised our children to be what they are and not what other people expect". What came out of...
Couldn't sleep, it was ten till four in the morning. So, the day began early for me. I turned on some music, and tried to clear my head.
Had a thrist that wouldn't leave me. The only thing I could think of to quinch this thristy was a glass of green tea. The problem was I needed...
Today may not be perfect, and yet it is here, it is now, it is yours to live. Though there are dangers, and risks, frustrations and disappointments, through it all, in each day and each moment, you have the opportunity to experience the miracle that is your life.

Have you ever thought about your future? Just sat there and planned things out? I have but now I realise you can't just plan your life.
Things happen good and bad, it may not be a fairy tale or story but a life. If you want to do something but then think "no, I won't be able to...
As the heart beats there is a complacency,
We live a lifetime of moments.
some good, some bad, some indifferent.
Some we remember and some we forget.
Some are placed within our heart
to remain there always.
Some are discarded too readily
as ones we want to forget,
there is no written guarantee.
And things that happened yesterday,
belong to history
I cannot predict the future,
I cannot change the past
I have just the present moment,
I must treat it as my last
I must use this moment wisely,
for it will soon pass away
And be lost to me...
It's hard to assume then dreams become inadequate to make it real. Hence, cherish the moment and live in it until it becomes a lasting memory which can make you smile in the future as an enduring remembrance of the hours passed and days that were gone.
I breathe in and out every minute of my day, with extreme intensity. A day can start cloudy, but never alone. It is always accompanied by many thoughts, filled with memories.Sometimes I look around and see immobilized souls petrified by “rules”, stagnant by paradigms that...
To me the past is over and there is no going back, I can’t live there. I may have learned something but it’s gone like a dream.
The future hasn’t happened yet and is a complete unknown. It’s not real until it can be realized.
enjoy oh so sweetly.
Nothing exists but right now.
Show the world you know how.
Immersed, focused, involved;
Sad moments will be resolved
Just as joyous times go fast,
Sad’s shadow will lose its cast.
It’s but a moment all will live,
So leave an imprint that will give...
Seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years have passed . . have you lived? Have you felt your life . . or are you quickly flipping through pages . .

Life is like a scent ,you can smell her for a while..... but you can never old her for long,
,or better ,we are like flowers
that spread they fragrance as long as we are blooming,but then we flowers away ,just like the sun leave is place to the night.
nothing is left...
You walk in my door, we quickly move past our pretenses and time could stand still.
Cause the next few hours its you and I, with these heightened senses and our lustful will.
In these first few these moments I fantasize about what’s to ... ***, your taste... your touch...
I used to say day by day, then it was breath by breath.
Now I know each heart beat has it's own time.
Cherish every second for what it is and don't worry about what tomorrow holds.
~ easier said than done of course ~
when you miss someone
so much that you just want to pick them from
your dreams and hug them for real!
When the door of happiness closes, another opens;
but often times we look so long at the
closed door that we don’t see the one,
which has been opened for us.
Don’t go for...
I live for right now. OK I make stupid choices and have done my share of screwups BUT what would be worse than dying with a list of things I wanted to do and haven't done?
We only get one go at life and I am going to enjoy it as much as possible :-D
If I get hit by a bus...
It's my secret to sanity, living in the moment.... to withstand all that has been....can't do a thing about it so why even go there. I try to stay in the here and now, to live in the moment. It is the only time i can control. Shoot... can't even control... do much about tomorrow...
Taking the definition of love to a new height, I decided to 'be' with someone online - a total stranger I met on a game, without knowing each others' identities, names and looks. Nothing. Perhaps he is my answer to my questions: What is love? What is a relationship?Dangerous game...
In my pursuit of further understanding and reduction of suffering I have studied and practiced mindfulness as much as possible on my own over the past year. The practice of mindfulness supports peace, happiness and the ending of suffering.

Yes! Each momentous moment that has never been and will never be again! This momentous moment is ours to grasp, to make every effort to make every right action and squeeze ultimate satisfaction from this momentous moment!

Any difficulties are only signs to look closer within for a new direction....
It's not good to fight obstacles.. or delays!
Time is needed at the beginning of any life change and obstacles are there to remind us to take it easy... wait... or a dead wrong path!
Delays can be a...
