Writing about the importance of each of life’s moments, Eckhart Tolle says, “Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time, but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time – past and future – the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.”
He adds deeper meaning to his words writing, “Nothing ever happened in the past; it happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the Now.” The Dalai Lama writes, “There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.” Each Now moment is a precious singularity, one to be embraced and lived with intentionality and passion. This uniqueness is captured beautifully by Leonardo da Vinci, “In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with the present time.”
May you live, maximize, treasure and enjoy each beautiful and precious Now moment understanding that it is, as Thích Nhât Hanh says, “the doorway to all moments.” Hold closely Wayne Dyer’s counsel, “Present-moment living, getting in touch with your now, is at the heart of effective living. When you think about it, there really is no other moment you can live. Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives.” With a joyous realization of its profound significance, may you live each Now moment passionately, boldly daringly and courageously. As Horace tells us, “Carpe diem”. Life goes by so quickly. May you live each and every moment to its fullest that at end of days you may say, “I truly lived every day of my life.”
Have a beautiful day, a magnificent week and a joyous and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
