The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Time

 Time is always moving on, nothing can stop it

 Time is always moving on; nothing can stop it. We can’t change the past, but we can shape the future. The more compassionate you are, the more you will find inner peace.

The three times are equal

Since the time we were born from our mother’s womb, the only thing we have seen is the present. We have never seen the past and we have never seen the future. Wherever we are, whatever time it is, it is only the present.

The present does not remain beyond a single instant [snaps fingers]. That is why the three times are the same. You must remember that the three times are equal.

– Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche

The future is a concept, it does not exist

To dwell in the here and now does not mean you never think about the past

 “To dwell in the here and now does not mean you never think about the past, or responsibly plan for the future. The idea is simply not to allow yourself to get lost in regrets about the past or worries about the future… The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~


The present is shorter than a microsecond
