I will not be a slave to the Past or the Future, but I want to be the Master of the Present.
The only thing we have is NOW. I will not sacrifice the present moment for the past or the future.
Mindfulness is the key.
Am I living fully in the present moment?
Do I taste the sweetness of the fruit in my mouth?
Or have I forgotten the fruit was there at all, because I am thinking about how I am going to survive tomorrow? Or because I am thinking how badly my parents damaged me as a child? (Typical. lol)
The present slips away like quick silver, because you never noticed you were holding it in the first place.
