Be Present and Enjoy Being

Life is too precious to be spent worrying about the future, or regretting the past. Past problems and future worries merely exist in our minds. They are not real, only illusions. Free your mind from past and future, and only the glorious and eternal NOW is present.

"When you surrender to what is and so become fully present the past ceases to have any power. The realm of Being, which had been obscured by the mind, then opens up. Suddenly, a great stillness arises within you, an unfathomable sense of peace. And within that peace, there is great joy. And within that joy, there is love. And at the innermost core, there is the sacred, the immeasurable. That which cannot be named" - Eckhart Tolle

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, but today is a gift. That's why they call it 'the present.'" - source unknown.

Can you feel your presence? Are you aware of your being? Quiet your mind for a moment. Be still. Stop those incessant chattering going on in your head. Focus on your breathing instead. Feel every part of your body. Let the inner realm open up. If you can reach that point, you'd know that there's nothing else out there which could ever top the feeling of immense joy.
