"Freedom is always found just where you are (...) it all takes place right now. Hurrying and worrying don't bring more time. All we truly ever have is the present moment. The past is gone, the future is not yet here. The art of living is to be in the eternal present, open to what is. It takes only a moment to break the spell of time, to step out of our thoughts and see the sunlight reflecting on the window, taste the dazzling mystery of a tangerine."

No Time Like the Present — Jack Kornfield

 

 

 

August 12th — Home / 06:16 pm 

A summer evening. Rains outside. My bare feet are on top of the sofa, the laptop on my lap. While I type this, the room is silent, but G is on his computer making music and I can hear it through his headphones. 

 

 
 

"This silence is not withdrawal, indifference, or punishment. It is not the absence of thoughts. It is spacious and refreshing, a tender stillness from which you can learn, listen, and look deeply."
