If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath. ~ Amit Ray

Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more. ~ Mother Teresa

The habit of ignoring our present moments in favor of others yet to come leads directly to a pervasive lack of awareness of the web of life in which we are embedded. This includes a lack of awareness and understanding of our own mind and how it influences our perceptions and our actions. It severely limits our perspective on what it means to be a person and how we are connected to each other and the world around us. ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

The mind spends most of the time lost in fantasies and illusions, reliving pleasant or unpleasant experiences and anticipating the future with eagerness or fear. While lost in such cravings or aversions, we are unaware of what is happening now, what we are doing now. Yet surely this moment, now, is the most important for us. We cannot live in the past; it is gone. Nor can we live in the future; it is forever beyond our grasp. We can live only in the present. – S.N. Goenka

Religion has traditionally been the domain of such fundamental inquiries within a spiritual framework, but mindfulness has little to do with religion, except in the most fundamental meaning of the word, as an attempt to appreciate the deep mystery of being alive and to acknowledge being vitally connected to all that exists. ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

We can live only in the present. If we are unaware of our present actions, we are condemned to repeating the mistakes of the past and can never succeed in attaining our dreams for the future. But if we can develop the ability to be aware of the present moment, we can use the past as a guide for ordering our actions in the future, so that we may attain our goal. – S.N. Goenka

Much of our modern way of life is permeated by mindless overborrowing. The more we borrow, the more we loser. That’s why it’s critical that we wake up and see we don’t need to do that anymore. What’s already available in the here and now is plenty for us to be nourished, to be happy. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Breath

By degrees, little by little, from moment to moment a wise man removes his mental impurities, as a smith removes the dross of gold. – Buddha, Dhammapada
