The Present Moment - LIVE NOW!

The present moment is very precious and living in the moment is the best decision we can take to value our living moments.


 Do not dwell in the past,
Do not dream of the future,
Concentrate the mind on the present moment.
~ Buddha ~

 We are constantly taxing our minds with the thoughts of our past mistakes or our future fears that we forget to see the treasures we can find in the present moment.

When we perform our daily actions with a present mindfulness all will turn out well. Even our simple routines get a meaning when done with awareness.

Only this moment is ours and when we use it to take care of our body, mind and soul in an effective way we can truly enjoy a joyous life.

Taking care of our body with the right diet and exercise gives us the energy to enjoy the present moment.

 Sitting down for meditation everyday rejuvenates our mind and soul and we become more aware of the beauty in the now.


These two words capture beautifully the essence of the Buddha quote.

 "With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future.
I live now. "
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

 Living in the now is the gift we give us ourselves. It helps us to do our actions with a consciousness that this moment once lost is gone forever.

We start to value our relationships and learn to bond better and express more as a lost moment will never return.

Live now to explore your talents and aspirations. Your efforts of today will be rewarded in the future.

The past is over and the future is yet to come. What we have is only the present moment which quickly changes to become our past moment. .

Our present actions are the seeds for our future successes.
So, let us LIVE NOW for a joyful living always!

"Nothing is worth more than this day."
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ~
