Best 80 of Living in the moment quotes - MyQuotes

Live each day as if it were your last; love each day as if you will live forever.
Humankind is persistent in initiating diversity and complexity into the simplicity of life.
Elizabeth Von Arnim
Things were a little untidy, but what did that matter? It was possible to become the slave of things; possible to miss life in preparation for living.
She plucked the blossoms from the bag and arranged them, one by one, in the water glass on her dressing table. "They'll never keep," I said. "They're [hibiscus] a terrible cutting flower. They'll wilt by morning." "I know," she said." But don't they look so pretty right now, just as they are?" I nodded. I wished I could see the beauty in the moment the way Kitty did. It was a gift.

I wanted to tell you that life is a lot shorter than you could ever have imagined. And those people that love you that you think will be there forever, won’t be. I wanted to tell you not to waste your time pretending to live without really living. Take your shoes off when everyone has theirs on. Wear what you want. Say how you feel. And say it often. Say it when you’re most afraid to. Love so hard that it hurts. Don’t pretend to be someone to make other people comfortable, and don’t let others steal your confidence because they are struggling with their own. I want to hear that you lived your life free of the restrictions that others wanted to choke you with. I want to hear that you had the courage to risk it all, once. That you soaked every last tear out of that heartbreak and are stronger for it. I want to hear that you feel the wind and the rain and the sun. I want to hear you scream so loud that the clouds shake. Because this is all you have. All we have. Right now. I don’t want you to wake up one day and realize that you spent so much time worrying about life that you forgot to live it.
Mindfulness is not the path of chasing. It is the path of beautification. When flowers blossom, the fragrance spreads, and the bees come.
So, tomorrow, I'm leaving. And I'm not going to let that happen again with anyone else. I'm going to do what I want to do. I'm going to be who I really am. And I'm going to figure out what that is. But right now I'm here with you. And I want to know where you are, what you need, and what you want to do.
Tis only when faced with our own mortality that we truly realize what it means to be alive,
In magic - and in life - there is only the present moment, the now. You can't measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. 'Time' doesn't pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; we're always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didn't act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what we're going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we don't want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.
The ultimate experience of being mindful occurs when we forget about everything, even the mindful self and doing. In that mode we are full of energy, utterly self-generated.
Mindfulness is observing the beauty of every moment unfolding before us.
Breathing is our participation with the cosmic dance. When our breath is in harmony, cosmos nourishes us in every sense.
Today is the first day in history. -One of Nathan's Daily Gems From the 'Book Store ON Main Street' Seal Beach, CA
Mind is like a net, drawn by the needles of past and future. Mindfulness is the way for not getting stuck into that net.
It didn't get better, not in my book. I mean if you weren't looking too hard at what just happened or who might be down the road or at some other stuff. Maybe living well is the art of not looking at that, at the other stuff, when you don't have to. Or being okay with it.
A beautiful woman is one with a beautiful heart. She may be covered with mud or sores but only her foot fit the glass slipper.

Do you spend more time looking at your watch than living in the moment?
On more than one occasion I heard how life apparently advances, moves on, sets sail or, at worst, apparently crawls slowly forward. My life, on the other hand, simply exploded like a firecracker in the hand of God, a small flare in his mighty firmament of bombardment.
Your life should consist of more than commuting, working, eating, surfing the Internet, sleeping and watching TV. Your life should be filled with purpose-driven experiences and projects that bring excitement, passion, energy, and authentic meaning and joy into your life.
Mindfulness is not entering into another planet. It is making you good at what you do. It is restoring your link to the source of life.
Lailah Gifty Akita
We can only live life when we understand life.
The key is, in that moment of time, to be completely there, if not, you will be left behind, with regret, and forever wondering.

You only live once in your life. Decide the the path to be travel by you in this life.
It was a limitation of human consciousness: We live only in the future and past, we cannot perceive now. Now occupies no space, a hypothetical gap between future and past. Only an exceptional few could feel now athletes and jazzmen and, yes, thieves...
It seems sometimes that we get so caught up in missing the past, or looking forward to the future, that we forget that this, right here and now, was once the days we longed for and will soon be the ones we miss.
I may be going nowhere, but what a ride.
On a motorcycle, I learned to let go of the vast uncertainty and focus instead on what is in front of me: the surface of the road and the curve of it, the vehicles in front and behind, the wind and the rain and the wildlife peeking out of the grass. There are times when I struggle to manage every last detail as it whips pat me, to hold on to past and present and future simultaneously, but they're not mine to understand, or control. I have to remind myself, again and again, that only this is mine: this moment, this heartbeat, this decision.
Look: each moment is a cradle and a casket: may all life and all death seem strange to you.

Enjoy every moment of your life on earth.
