The past is gone.
The future is not yet here.
Life can only be found in the present moment.

Our happiness resides in this moment. Please enjoy these words of advice from the Buddha about alleviating your suffering by living in the present:
Perceive things as they truly are
To live here and now, you must train yourself:
In the seen, there will be just the seen.
In the heard, just the heard.
In the sensed, just the sensed.
In the thought, just the thought.
That is the end of sorrow.
Meditations to practice mindfulness and live in the present moment.

I enjoy this Sunday and contemplate the beauty of each moment. I drink a cup of tea and consider the vapors that move through my nose and mouth, the tea soothes my throat, calms my mind and warms my being.
