Being truly in touch with life

This is a basic teaching that is very beautifully expressed in these words by Thich Nhat Hanh:
Life can be found only in the present moment. The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life.

    thank you hit the spot, your blog is awesome and although frequently read and until today never respond wanted to let you know your efforts do encourage and uplift and make a difference, peace and good will to you!

    Like a sphere tangent to a plane, our lives touch eternity at a single point--the present.
