Here And Now 

•There is no better moment than Now, even if right now your situation isn’t idilic, there is only Now, and if you weren’t here and now with your “good” or “bad” moment, you aren’t anywhere at all. •We are where our consciousness is. Energy flows where attention goes. This doesn’t mean that all the myriad of infinite possibilities don’t exist at the same time, it’s just that your “energy” is here, not somewhere else. • If we truly grasp this simple and complex reality, why then do we look for happiness somewhere other than Here and Now? Yes, those other “happy moments” might exist somewhere else, just like the infinite possibilities, but always, and forever, happiness will only be revealed in This Instant. This Moment. Here and Now. • I love love love master Dogen’s way of saying it, and I have to remind myself of it every single day: “If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?” ••••
