Each one of us is like an island of perception, floating in an ocean of past experiences, memories.
Unless we consciously question, that which we think we are perceiving, living ‘now’ is a poetic notion, a cognitive illusion.
An inquiring mind discovers that ‘now’ exists within the constellation of active inquiry, the dawning of inner peace, where confusion suspends and suffering vaporizes in the clear bright light of discovery.
Today we are shaping our future self and crafting our life to come.
Someday is the graveyard of regrets, littered with the rotting corpses of what could have been. Brilliant ideas, beautiful dreams and unlimited potential lay buried beneath our feet. We have two choices in life, now or never. Tomorrow might be too late, stop dithering, do it now, like today.
~ Judit e. Szabo
Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
~ T.S. Eliot
Artist: Hugo E Sandoval
Write down the area of your life that most needs your attention right now, and then write out the details of your soul’s vision for this part of your life.
- What does it look like?
- How will achieving your goal change your life?
- How will it change the lives of those around you?
- When you reach your goal, when you fulfill that desire, what will you make room for?
Take a few minutes to write it all down.
~ Debbie Ford
