“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

– Buddha



In The Now: A Gatha

In The Now: A Gatha

In the now I stand, in the present I sit.

The past is gone and the future has not yet arrived.



I only have this present moment.

I only have this now.

It is in the now where I can do anything; it is in the now where I can find and keep genuine peace.

The now is all that I really have.

If I am fearful or sad I can find refuge in the present, and if I continue breathing mindfully I will find my pain and discomfort finally dissolving.

To stay present in one moment is to know and be present in all of eternity.

Everlasting peace and love are always possible, staying in the now.

In the now I keep my stand, in the present I retain the timeless gift.
