Seize the Present Moment.

It’s all we have, and we and it come together only once in awhile:


Meditate, and increase the frequency with which body, speech and mind come together in the present moment (that’s a layman’s definition of enlightenment).

What was your last moment of happiness? Share yours in comments, below.

Mine was speed-napping on the floor with my lazy dog. Before that, it was enjoying a late afternoon double americano, my first coffee of the day, downtown.

    Right now!! I'm sitting down with my boyfriend and we are enjoying each other's company! Talking with one another and making each other laugh.

  3. Finding this post was my latest moment of happiness. Thank you! Before that it was making some peppermint tea, before that it was getting a text from my Mum, and before that it was listening to my favoruite songs 🙂 Love that every moment is another opportunity for happiness 🙂 Thanks!

    The super long cheek to cheek hugs that my 19 month old son has started giving; gave me one before I left for the office this morning

    Taking the taxi boat across the lake this evening after a day in the office. The elements always make my soul smile : )

    Making dinner for 5 laughing, engaging kids and a woman drinking wine allowing me to do it! Pure joy!
