Sanskrit Salutation To The Dawn

Listen to the salutation to the dawn,

Look to this day for it is life, the very life of life,
In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of our existence.
The bliss of growth, the splendor of beauty,
For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision,
But today well spent makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day.

Such is the salutation to the dawn.

Now

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.
