THE PRESENT

Dressed in a heavenly dream

The sparkle of crystals

The glitter of stars

 

Can hardly breathe

Joy over bubbling

At Beauty!

Awe inspiring

Heart arresting.

 

Touching gingerly,

Lest it vanishes…

 

Mirror, mirror on the wall…

 

Beware!

Don’t look too hard, nor too deep

‘Coz they say the mirror does not lie?

 

But alas! Fool

You dwelled too long

And paved the path from past to present

Now

Painful memories make their haunting presence

The mirror reflects your inner fears

The past returns vengeful ‘n in satiated

Ever expecting the obviously impossible

And last but not the least

Self- doubt creeps in

To finish the job.

 

Ah! The stupidity of the mind

The failings of a human heart

 

But

The day is not over

Till it is night

The dark cannot win

Till there is light

And the battle is not lost

Till it is not won

 

So

Lift the lid

Unbox your potential

Air your thoughts and dreams

Let the possibilities breathe

 

Say Yes first!

To self

To life, to love and laughter

 

Before the voices in your head drown you in

 

Own the present moment

Raise your vision and believe.

SOME THOUGHTS TO PONDER:

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
― Bil Keane

“We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. 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. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.”
― Alan W. Watts

“My ex-girlfriend was exquisite, while my current girlfriend is merely quisite. The ex always makes the past seem more excellent than the present.”
― Jarod KintzThis Book is Not FOR SALE

“In magic – and in life – there is only the present moment, the now. You can’t measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. ‘Time’ doesn’t pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; we’re always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didn’t act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what we’re going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we don’t want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.”
― Paulo CoelhoAleph

“I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.”
― Alan W. Watts

“All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vital, and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.”
― Martha Graham

“The past is a ghost, the future a dream and all we ever have is now.”
― Bill Cosby

“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.”
― George Harrison

“The present changes the past. Looking back you do not find what you left behind.”
― Kiran DesaiThe Inheritance of Loss

Be present. It is the only moment that matters.

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past.
If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
If you are at peace, you are living in the present”

-Lao Tzu

The past is where you learned the lesson the future is where you apply the lesson. Don’t give up in the middle.

“Realise deeply that the present moment is all you have.”-Eckhart Tolle

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.- Buddha

The present moment is the only moment available to us and it is the door to all moments.-Thich Nhat Hanh

Wherever you are- be all there.- Jim Elliot

Don’t let the past steal your present.

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past”

-George Orwel

Spinning

So here’s

A big yes to life coming full circle

No more semis n arcs to trapeze

 

When the going gets tough

We’ll together get it going

 

Off axis is just a different angle

 

Anchored within

I cannot trip

I cannot fall

Hell!

My feet don’t miss the ground beneath

 

Emotions party rock n roll

Swing me like a pendulum

But I stand steel resolved

Loyalty unwavering

Ever centered within
