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.
