Living in the Now

Living in the NOW

The past is non-existent. Apart from the knowledge, which is nothing but retained memory of the things learned and the experiences gained, the past is of not much use. Dwelling in the past can only devour the fleeting present which slips by even without one experiencing it. However, pleasant memories from the past do have the power to motivate people to live the present in a manner better than they did in the past.

Every day, every sunrise or every moment, can be a new beginning of a blessed future. Waking up in the morning, which is a Supreme Divine Blessing and privilege denied to many, is the first great opportunity of the first day of the rest of one’s life. May everyone accept this priceless divine gift with all humility, gratitude, awe and reverence.

“We have two lives
and the second begins when you realize you only have one.”
