we all know that the past merely exists in our memory and the future doesn’t exist yet. yet we tend to forget to appreciate the present moment although it’s all we have. now is the moment to follow your dreams. now is the time to be happy.
the tibetan buddhists say, that happiness is being in peace with the present moment. when you are in the present moment and don’t want to add anything to it or take anything away from it, you are happy. it’s some kind of calm alertness, you are fully awake and yet calm and in peace with yourself and the world around you.
