Enlightenment

Enlightenment is understanding that there is nowhere to go, nothing to do, and nobody you have to be except exactly who you're being right now
Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed
Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor
- Thich Nhat Hanh
Few of us ever live in the present. We are forever anticipating what is to come or remembering what has gone
