Becoming friendly with the present moment is the only spiritual practice you really need


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.

The only thing you ever have is now


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

Be aware of the space that allows everything to be


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
