When you change your attitude towards the present moment to one of wonder, curiosity, appreciation, love, respect, compassion, patience, acceptance and awe, the present moment welcomes you with open arms. – Eckhart Tolle
Relaxing and allowing the existence to do whatever is right. Trust the existence. And existence has never betrayed anyone.
What is possible and what is not is not your business. Nature will decide this. Your business is just to work for what truly matters to you. When nothing is sure, everything is possible.
Respect yourself. Feel the joy and the pride that existence needs you; otherwise you would not have been here. Rejoice that existence cannot be without you. In the first place that’s why you are here: existence has given you an opportunity, a life with tremendous treasures hidden within you — of beauty, of ecstasy, of freedom.
Eternity isn’t some later time. Eternity isn’t a long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension of here and now which thinking and time cuts out. This is it. And if you don’t get it here, you won’t get it anywhere. And the experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life.
Throughout the day, stop and watch how time seems to go by. Is there any moment when it is not now? Can you experience past or future? Can you hold time in your hand and define it?
Life is not somewhere waiting for you, it is happening in you. It is not in the future as a goal to be arrived at, it is here, is now, this very moment, in your breathing, circulating in your blood, beating in your heart.
When you are calm, when you are still, you see things as they truly are. You don’t distort things. When you are not calm, it’s easy to get confused and angry. All of us make a lot of mistakes and create a lot of suffering when we are not calm. – Thích Nhất Hạnh
The whole play of Existence is so absurd and beautiful that laughter can be the only response to it. Only laughter can be the real attitude, gratitude.
Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. – Alan Watts
