Being Present Quotes and Tips

Be Here Now

"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives." -- Annie Dillard

"Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever." -- Horace Mann

"If, before going to bed every night, you will tear a page from the calendar, and remark, 'there goes another day of my life, never to return,' you will become time conscious." -- A. B. Zu Tavern

"The thought 'I exist' is not the same thing as the awareness of one's own existence. Thought is not the same thing as consciousness." -- Jacob Needleman

A person asked Buddha:
"Are you a God?"
Buddha's reply was
"No."
"Are you an Angel?"
"No."
"Then what are you?"
"I am Awake." -- Unknown Source

"This moment is the moment of reality, of union, of truth. Nothing needs to be done to it or to you for this to be so. Nothing needs to be avoided, transcended, or found for it to be so."
-- Da Avabhasa

"Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories." -- Cathy Allen
 

"Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going." -- Tennessee Williams

Many people live their whole lives lost in thoughts of the past and the future. Yet, we only truly live life when we are present to the moment. And being present means being fully conscious of what's going on so we can participate fully and appropriately in the opportunities that present themselves.

There is value in reliving our experiences when we can learn from such reflection. However, there's no need to probe into the past to unearth old experiences for healing. Life does a marvellous job of bringing circumstances to us now that support us in healing old wounds. And so we can be assured that we always gain by opening to the possibilities inherent in every 'now' moment.

We lose the power of the moment because we're so rarely in it. We're reliving the past or speculating about the future. We continue to believe that tomorrow's the day when I'll be more capable, more wealthy, more fit and more loving. Yet, intuition, creativity, connection, soul and inspiration are available only in the present moment.

When you find yourself thinking of the future or the past, bring your awareness into the present. Really experience how you feel and what's happening around you, without judgment. If we can treasure each moment, our lives will be rich, no matter what we have accomplished.

"Each today, well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and each tomorrow a vision of hope. Look, therefore, to this one day, for it and it alone is life." -- Sanskrit poem

"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment." -- Henry David Thoreau
