Chapter 7, Page 27, Book 18



There is only the moment.  The now.  Only what you are experiencing at this second is real.  This does not mean you live for the moment.  It means you live in the moment.

Leo Buscaglia

The present moment is the perfect time to begin


Best to take the moment present, as a present for the moment

Stephen Sondheim

Living in the moment is not aways easy. Sometimes our thoughts are overwhelmed by regrets or anxiety about the future.  Our moments add up to minutes, the minutes add up to hours, and the hours add up to days and the days add up to months and the months add up to years and so it goes.  

The moments is where we are, now.  What we do with the moments we have is what we do with our lives.

If you can live only live one moment at a time, you might as well make it the present.


Life is a succession of moments.  To live each one is to succeed.

Corita Kent

We don't remember the days, we remember the moments.

I often find myself thinking ahead with sometimes anxiety. I need to adopt the attitude of living in the moment.

Sobering, but true! How often I've mused, "Where did the day go?" … only to realize everything marches on, whether I'm paying attention or not.

I try to stay in the moment as best I can. It is too sad to look back sometimes and I think one can become anxious if worried about the future. I try to live each day as fully as I can...even if it means having a quiet day. xo Diana

Jilda often ask us in her yoga class, what time is it. At first people would look at their watch. But they’v Learned the correct answer is, NOW.
