Living in the Present

Some believe that only one person in a thousand knows the trick of really living in the present.

Most of us spend 59 minutes of every hour living in the past, with regrets for lost joys, shame for things badly done (both utterly useless and weakening) - or in a future which we either long for or dread.

Yet the past is gone beyond prayer, and every minute spent in the vain effort to anticipate the future is a moment lost forever.

There is only one world, the world pressing against you this minute.

There is only one minute in which you are alive, this minute - here and NOW.  The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle, which is exactly what it is - a miracle and unrepeatable.
