    Living In The Now Moment

    Since i was a little girl I instinctively knew that the only important moment was the one i was present in... keeping my mind free of compulsive thinking about the past or future helped me stay focused and awake. Life is bright, free of negative influences when one remains...

    I'm sitting down here looking at the person

    ahead of me, he sat with the a bong in his hand. The feeling of living in the moment is inevitable. Therefore this moment is all that I care of, my best friend with me, besides me always. I believe that in this moment I will be in a situation lighting away "stuff" in the air. I...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    I used to live in the past counting my old

    hurts, or in the imagination of a future of how I’d like it to be and feel sad that I am not living it. It is a way of always putting my powers in other people, or in the hands of the “circumstances” and wait for them to change. I was someone who always blames others or...
