Poem: Here and Now

Quote of the day: 
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life. -Eckhart Tolle

How often do you embrace yourself
How often do you focus on your happiness 
A far cry from living each day in fear
A far cry from living daily with stress.

How often do you smile at yourself in the mirror
How often do you see a wonderful reflection 
A far cry from despising your image
A far cry from negative emotion. 

How often do you gaze at the distant stars
How often do you dream of an idea
A far cry from fighting your inner self
A far cry from evading things you hold dear.

How often do you appreciate the moment
How often do you treat people with kindness
A far cry from simply existing and not living
A far cry from intolerance and selfishness.

Peace & Love to you all.

Current Listen:- George Ezra -Budapest
