Many of us do feel that moments of happiness in our lives are few and fleeting.Β The words in the quote below reveal the reason why.

Our mind is constantly taking us away from the present moment either into the past or in the future. As such we miss the happiness which exists in the present moment. The only way to be happy is to do things mindfully and be aware of the beauty of our surrounding. Enjoy nature’s bounty and develop the art of listening. Such like simple practices will surely make us experience happiness and plenty of it.

Cheers and regards to you my friends πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Nice to see you Dilip, making such a lofty statement. Verily, it is neither past nor future. Just, as Horace exhorted, β€˜carpe diem’, reiterating what sages in the East codified millenniums earlier as meditation and mindful living. Cheers…

        Ha ha Raj yes the statement indeed is rather lofty. The present moment is right where we are yet our mischievous mind slips out of our grasp. Yes you are right we must practice mindful living.
