We are always getting ready to live but never living. ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
When one moment comes, other is gone already. For this simple moment, look how much fuss we create! How much violence, ambition, struggle, conflict, anger, hatred, just for this small moment! You are traveling through this world and waiting to unlock your own potential; instead, you are occupying yourself by creating so much fuss: fighting, hurting each other, trying to possess things, trying to be right, trying to dominate others – for what? Maybe you do not realize this; you are losing life in those moments that you don’t care about.
Life is only available to you at this present moment. Past has nothing to offer you, and the future can’t guarantee you anything. This present moment is giving you thousands of possibilities; to use it in whichever way you would like and to look at life however you would want to. Why would you discard this beautiful opportunity?
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” ― Henry David Thoreau
The concept of time can create confusion in your min if your energy is divided between past, present, and future. Invest yourself in this present moment and see how this investment will grow over time. This present moment is the only thing you can be sure of, the only surety of you being alive. Do not waste your abundance on the illusions of better or worse. Or else, you will have a dreadful collection of un-used moments that could have made your dreams true.
All you have is now; Live it up!
