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

The eternal present is the space within which your whole life unfolds, the one factor that remains constant. Life is now. There is only this now. It does not come from anywhere, it is not going anywhere. Through ‘moving’, it is always still. When we try to catch it, it seems to run away, and yet it is always here.

Discover the ‘I Am’

The beauty you seek lies within the innermost feeling of “I Am.” Do not be fooled by seeking for certainty, beauty, validation and strength in the outer world, for there is no outer world. Once you realize the I Am is all there is, you will also realize that the source of everything is always here and now and it is synonymous with ‘you.’ – Bentinho Massaro

All forms of life and being are simply variations on a single theme: we are all in fact one being doing the same things in as many different ways as possible. – Alan Watts in “The Joyous Cosmology”
