    All We Have is Today What has happened in the

    past, is over. We can't go back, all we can do is learn from it. Some people are trapped, stuck and have let the past define themselves. We don't know what is going to happen in the future...best laid plans are oft in vain. All we can do is learn from our past and move...

    The Power Of Now

    One of the most life changing books that my being has read has got to be hands down The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. Fascinating book. I highly recommend it. It teaches us the importance of remaining in our present moments. We may be having fun and then think about having to go...

    The Chance Of Humming

    A man standing on two logs in a river might do all right floating with the current while humming in the now.   Though if one log is tied to a camel, who is also heading south along the bank –at the same pace- all could still be well with the world unless the camel...

    I live in the moment..although sometimes the present is well spent pondering your happy memories, or anticipating a future in excitement or out of simple practicality... I think at times we have to assimilate the story of our lives, mentally or when chatting with the main...

    Living In The Now Moment

    There Is Only Now.

    What does it mean to live in the present moment? The present moment is all there is. Forget, right now, about the ideas you have of past, present, and future. None of that exists. There is only NOW. The past only exists as a memory that is occuring right NOW. The future only...

    Right now is a miracle.

    Right now is the only moment guaranteed to you. Right now is life. So stop thinking about how great things will be in the future. Stop dwelling on what did or didn't happen in the past. Learn to be in the 'here and now' and experience life as it's happenning. Appreciate the...

    The Magic Lantern

    A good friend of mine asked me today: "What would you wish for if you had a lantern with a genie?" The question gave me pause because I am not much of a wishful thinker. Hadn't really thought about that since I was a kid. My first instinct is that I have to think it carefully. It...

    I Choose To

    I cannot look back and dwell on all of it because every time I do it sets me back. I can't think about tomorrow because if it doesn't get here then I wasted today's time on something that was never guaranteed to begin with. To do either seems like the ultimate waste of time to me...
