Inspiration & insights from the path toward happiness & wisdom from a yogi and Christian mystic.
“A new day is here. Yesterday is a memory. Tomorrow is unknown. Now is the knowing.”
“There was never any more inception than there is now,
Nor any more youth or age than there is now,
And will never be any more perfection than there is now,
Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.”
The contemplative secret is to learn to live in the now. The now is not as empty as it might appear to be or that we fear it may be. Try to realize that everything is right here, right now. When we’re doing life right, it means nothing more than it is right now, because God is in this moment in a non-blaming way. When we are able to experience that, taste it and enjoy it, we don’t need to hold on to it. The next moment will have its own taste and enjoyment.
Because our moments are not tasted or full or real or in the Presence, we are never full. We create artificial fullness and try to hang on to that. But there’s nothing to hold on to when we begin to taste the fullness of the now. God is either in this now or God isn’t at all. This moment is as perfect as it can be.”
“Your life is out in front of you. What you’ve done is what you’ve done. You can’t change that. But you can move forward”
“No matter where you go, there you are.”
