Be here now

Gurudev H. H. Sri Sri Ravishankar emphasizes on the importance of living in the present moment. This is the most valuable lesson I have learnt from him which has changed my life for the better. Mind is so fickle that it seldom stays in the present. Like a pendulum, it keeps shuttling between the past and the future. It is either lost in the glories or the regrets of the past or busy planning for the future. In doing so, we forget to enjoy the present where happiness lies.

Be here now…

Retreat from the past hurts and regrets

No more reveling in the past glories

The time to be happy is now!

Be here now…

For happiness doesn’t lie in fancy vacations

Or exotic locations which you can only dream of

Or in the surreal spots far off from the daily grind.

The place to be happy is here!

Be here now…

And live each moment as it comes

With some passion and compassion

For this is where happiness lies!

Be here now…

And live each moment mindfully

Accepting and embracing God’s will

Being aware of the impermanence of life

Realizing this is the ultimate truth.
