When you take your attention into the present moment, a certain alertness arises. You become more conscious of what’s around you, but also, strangely, a sense of presence that is both within and without.
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.
— Eckhart Toole
We have to get back to the beauty of just being alive in this present moment.
— Mary McDonnell
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
