Attention to this moment is an alchemy that turns dullness to beauty and anxiety to ease. When you are present in this moment, you break the continuity of your story, of past and future, you are simply as real as you are in this moment.
Don’t be bothered with the next moment, or the next life, or the next world. Make this moment rejoicing, make this moment a moment of bliss, and the next will follow it, and the next life, and the next world. – Osho
If you sit quietly for a moment and go within to search as to what and where this I is, you will be surprised that despite an intense search, you cannot find an I anywhere. The deeper you search inside, the more profound a void and silence you will find there, and no ego, no I anywhere.
The root of the problem is the strong distraction of the mind, which makes it unable to realize its own unbalanced condition and the reality of everything in which is an inseparable fragment. The urge, the demand, the longing to be totally secure in our relations with everything is nothing more and nothing less that a manifestation of that distraction, which is an irrational condition of the mind. – Jiddu Krishnamurti
Focus your mind on ‘I am’, which is pure and simple being. You are Here and Now only. Contemplate what it is to be fully ‘Here’ and fully ‘Now’. For this you must leave all else; stay only as here-now. Conscious presence. This is Being. This is Reality.
How to be at peace now? By making peace with the present moment. The present moment is the field on which the game of life happens. It cannot happen anywhere else. – Eckhart Tolle
