All of us have moments in our lives that test our courage. Taking children into a house with a white carpet is one of them.
Always say 'yes' to the present moment... Surrender to what is. Say 'yes' to life - and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.
Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.
Don't wait to be successful at some future point. Have a successful relationship with the present moment and be fully present in whatever you are doing. That is success.
Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason.
For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen.
For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person's life at a given moment.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
I can feel guilty about the past, apprehensive about the future, but only in the present can I act. The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.
I have no idea what's awaiting me, or what will happen when this all ends. For the moment I know this: there are sick people and they need curing.
I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.
In moments of great grief, thatís where you look and immerse yourself. You realise you are not immortal, you are not a god, you are part of the natural world and you come to accept that.
In the blackest of your moments, wait with no fear.
Life is a disease, brother, and death begins already at birth. Every breath, every heartbeat, is a moment of dying - a little shove toward the end.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Most people treat the present moment as if it were an obstacle that they need to overcome. Since the present moment is life itself, it is an insane way to live.
One doesn't recognize the really important moments in one's life until it's too late.
People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.
So many people have this idea: I want to achieve something great or be somebody great. And they neglect the step that leads to greatness. They don't honor this step at this moment because they have this idea of some future moment where they are going to be great.
Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
The great mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; you ought not to be thinking of whether it ends in victory or defeat. Let nature take its course, and your tools will strike at the right moment.
The more you live in the present moment, the more the fear of death disappears.
The pleasure of the moment begins to wither almost as soon as it blossoms; our pleasures are soon swallowed up in time's relentless torrent.
The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.
Though wrong gratifies in the moment, good yields its gifts over a lifetime.
We fear our highest possibility (as well as our lowest one). We are generally afraid to become that which we can glimpse in our most perfect moments.
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death.
We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.
We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.
Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.
You can wish for things in the future to be different, but in this moment you have to accept things as they are.
You never know when a moment and afew sincere words can have an impact on a life.
