Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 188 People

    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...
