Surrender to this moment.

This moment is the stuff of life.

Memories are past, both the good and the bad.

Fears define events that have not yet happened, and worry drives away simply being.

Live in this moment, at this time, when life takes place.

It will not take place. It has not taken place. It is taking place.

The being here, the being alive, and the am of “I am” are all happening now.

Now is never and forever, both fleeting and eternal.

Now is the gift of life spreading its wings in glad bestowal.

Now is now.

If you live for this moment, you live in every other part of time.

If you live in the past, you are not alive now. Unmourned sadnesses taint the joy of birdsong as memory recalls absent others, a recollection diminishing the self.

If you fear the future, the moment is infected with suspicion as you seek out the harbingers of doom in trivial disappointments.

Now is everything, but it is also nothing. It is none of the past and yet it is all of the past, the tip of the spear of time needing everything that led up to this moment to be itself.

Ride the moment bravely and in passion. It is where you are most alive. It is where children play and where silence fills the forest.

There is much room in this moment as you are empty of your past.


I am in this moment being me.

    fill “right here, right now” with everything that you want for yourself, now. no looking back to lament time lost, no looking forward to what may or may not be.

    i just want to be. here. now. this very moment. just being me.

    Yes.. it is NOW. THIS VERY MOMENT. πŸ˜€

    Yes, the moment
    Now is the moment where we are most alive
    Look not too far at the past or the future for you cannot change the past and you cannot predict the future
    However you can live the moment
    Live life to the fullest every moment you can
    Do not let your past cling to you too much
    Do not let the future worry you too much
    Just live the moment

    As Whitney Houston sang:
    “You’re a winner for a lifetime
    If you seize that one moment in time..”

    Carpe Diem! We should all just leave the past, in the past. Or we can never proceed to the future. Take care, Love *hugs*

    It doesn’t bother me if people do memes or not. Some peopel find them annoying.

    Yes, Now is more important than the Past and Future. Let the Past teach us something valuable that we can carry on and learn from those mistakes and go on gracefully in the Present and let Future drop by slowly.


    Thanks, Kyels. πŸ™‚
