Every morning I get a message from the Osho community

After yoga, sometimes before, sometimes after blogging I read my inspiration for the day. It comes from samasati@mysamasati.com .

The one below I got several days ago and it saved my day. There is only the present moment. With each email comes a beautiful picture.


Be in the Present

U.,
Learn to be in the present.Withdraw your energy from the past. Don't waste your time in memories. What is gone is gone. Say goodbye to it and close the chapter.

What has not come yet has not come yet. Don't unnecessarily waste your time and energy in imagination, because no imagination is ever fulfilled. It is because of this that the proverb exists in every language: "Man proposes, and God disposes" because you imagine a certain thing in the future, and it is never so.

Withdrawing yourself from past and future, you will become a tremendously intense energy, focused in the present, concentrated in the present like an arrow.

Each moment being aware, alert, watchful, in the herenow, is the way not to miss the train. Every experience needs your presence here, this moment.

And this is a simple secret, but it opens the doors of existence, of all the mysteries, of all that is worth knowing, worth tasting, worth feeling, worth being.

Every morning I am reminded to be aware. Awareness makes the difference.

It makes me smile, that you read it, too.

Enjoy your weekend, too my friend.
