This Moment

What I think of a person has nothing to do with how others choose to perceive him. When I talk to someone, whoever he is, in whatever circumstance, I try to make him feel (at least with me) that he can throw away his emotional baggage.

On this moment, right now, you can choose to return to the cycles that have always held you back. Or, you can choose to let go and make this moment a new beginning. Yesterday is gone, and no amount of regret and guilt can change the past. The future may not even be as what we demand it to be, and we can't even know for certain if we'll still be alive tomorrow.

This moment is all we have. That poignant sense of impermanence is part of the miracle of life.
