Nisargadatta Maharaj
“Absolute perfection is here and now, not in some future, near or far.
The secret is in action - here and now.
It is your behavior that blinds you to yourself.
Disregard whatever you think yourself to be and act as if you were absolutely perfect
- whatever your idea of perfection may be.
All you need is courage.”
Nisargadatta Maharaj

Stephen Batchelor
“The Four Noble Truths are pragmatic rather than dogmatic. They suggest a course of action to be followed rather than a set of dogmas to be believed. The four truths are prescriptions for behavior rather than descriptions of reality. The Buddha compares himself to a doctor who offers a course of therapeutic treatment to heal one’s ills. To embark on such a therapy is not designed to bring one any closer to ‘the Truth’ but to enable one’s life to flourish here and now, hopefully leaving a legacy that will continue to have beneficial repercussions after one’s death. (154)”
Stephen Batchelor, Confession of a Buddhist Atheist

A.S. Byatt, Possession

Shannon L. Alder
“Peace is the way, not the destination.”
Shannon L. Alder

Joseph Campbell
“Every moment is utterly unique and will not be continued in eternity. This fact gives life its poignancy and should concentrate your attention on what you are experiencing now.”
Joseph Campbell, A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living

Criss Jami
“You can perhaps, in a number of circumstances, tell yourself that you can't have more than you have until you do better than you're doing, but by all means steer clear of its reverse, the creed of defeat, in saying that you can't do better than you're doing until you can have more than you have.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Dan Pearce
“Your past doesn't actually exist. What you think is your past is a tiny blip of electricity in your brain happening right now. And if that's happening now, what's actually happening right now isn't really happening for you at all. This is what it is meant when people say, "live in the present.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

Melyssa Winchester
“Rocky and Adrian. Ginger and Fred. Dillon and Cadence.
Three sets of two beings. Two people that apart mean a whole lot less then when they are together. Men made better because of the love of their women. In our case, a boy that can’t imagine existing without his girl.
His world.”
Melyssa Winchester, Here & Now

Virginia Woolf
“She was thinking how all those paths and the lawn, thick and knotted with the lives they had lived there, were gone: were rubbed out; were past; were unreal, and now this was real; the boat and the sail with its patch; Macalister with his earrings; the noise of the waves--all this was real.”
Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

Saurabh Sharma
“There are only two profound ways to reach enlightenment: Laugh by yourself, or get tickled.”
Saurabh Sharma

“As our lives speed up more and more, so do our children's. We forget and thus they forget that there is nothing more important than the present moment. We forget and thus they forget to relax, to find spiritual solitude, to let go of the past, to quiet ambition, to fully enjoy the eating of a strawberry, the scent of a rose, the touch of a hand on a cheek...”
Michael Gurian, The Wonder of Boys

Albert Einstein
“The strange things about growing old is that the intimate identification with the here and now is slowly lost. One feels transposed into infinity, more or less alone.”
Albert Einstein

“We don't need love to be eternal, only to be in our lives here and now.”
Marty Rubin

Human Angels
“The past and the future are tools of the ego that render us finite. Without our judgments about the past (memories) and without our judgments about the future (expectations), there is only the Here and Now, the eternal present, the timeless time of the Oneness.”
Human Angels

Anthony Liccione

Ann Brashares

HOPE- Season of Romance”
Kaleb Kilton
