Live in the present

Few of us ever live in the present.
We are forever anticipating,
what is to come or remembering what has gone.

Now

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


Gautama Buddha

Now

The past is already past.
Don’t try to regain it.
The present does not stay.
Don’t try to touch it.

From moment to moment.
The future has not come; don’t think about it beforehand.

Whatever comes to the eye, leave it be.
There are no commandments to be kept;
there’s no filth to be cleansed.

With empty mind really penetrated,
the dharmas have no life.

When you can be like this,
you’ve completed the ultimate attainment.
