Concentrate all your thoughts on the task at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.

Happiness consists of living each day as if it were the first day of your honeymoon and the last day of your vacation.

If we are ever to enjoy life, now is the time, not tomorrow or next year.

Stay committed in your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.

Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.

To be alive is to totally and openly participate in the simplicity and elegance of here and now.

As for the future, your task is not to foresee it but to enable it.

Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.

The next message you need is always right where you are.

If you worry about what might be, and wonder what might have been, you will ignore what is.

There is more to life than increasing its speed.

Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind.

Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.

Whatever the past has been, you have a spotless future.

A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.

Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.

No yesterdays are ever wasted for those who give themselves to today.

The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.

No valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.
