Anandmurti Gurumaa Quotes on Living in the Present Moment



The present moment is indeed a ‘present’ from the Divine. One needs to be with it, relish it, and soak in it. But we are not always in the present, not here – not now; always somewhere else, wondering, speculating, thinking, analyzing, doing everything, but never living in the Present. It is a very subtle, fine moment, a fleeting one. You have to be very cautious, very attentive; only then you may successfully catch it or else you’ll simply miss it.

Life as it is happening now, learn to appreciate it, rejoice in it. See the present moment which is happening around you: the blue sky, giggles of children, sounds of birds, floating clouds and if what you can hear is just noise then even this noise will become rhythmic, just be in the moment. And that is enough.
