Friends a lot has been written and said about this topic.
Really do we actually do that every moment that we are awake? Do we actually stretch, if so how much? Are we really giving our best every second of our life…. Are we at the Cutting Edge”.
It is interesting that ship are built with compartments. Why? In the event the ship does take in water, it’s possible to seal away damage sections of the ship, thus eliminating a capsize
Similarly our past, present and future are compartments, which if removed would seize the body and mind instantaneously. We live in these compartments, then why should we not isolate the compartments and live in the NOW to the fullest. Habits has caused us to sway. Similarly we could sway back with corrective habits. So, whilst in the moment, we need to practice and give it our most and all. The best way to pay for a moment is to enjoy it to the fullest ……
Professed simply by Swami Sivananda; “putting our heart, mind and soul into even the smallest of acts is success.”
Thought I would like to share a poem by Kalidasa, India’s foremost dramatist…..
Salutation to the Dawn.
Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life,
In its brief course
Lie all the varieties and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty.
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore, to this day!
Such is salutation to the dawn.
