Peace and harmony are illusions of sight,
for every particle of the universe constantly dance,
the caravan of existence never stops,
- Iqbal, Poet & Philosopherevery moment is a fresh one.
You are moving at a speed of 67,000 miles/hour as the earth rotates - standing still won't make a difference.
There were times when the British Empire ruled the world, what went wrong? They got stuck in the past with their industrialization, trains networks, navy and so on. On the other side of the Atlantic, the Americans, young as a nation, were open to change and adapt, century old attachments did not weigh on them. The same was the case with British in 1600's; eyes set of the horizon. Therefore, the past is extra luggage. Look towards the future starry-eyed, and, free of expectations; for expectations work the same way as regrets.
The only thing real is the present moment, not the past, not the future. Enjoy the moment, drown in your senses, let not your mind be burdened with the thought of past or the future.
This is it.
You are now!
