Only this moment

"Drink your tea slowly and reverently as if it is the axis on which the whole world revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live in the actual moment. Only this moment is life."
  • Thich Nhat Hanh.

He is often quoted in the buddhist quotation of the day and his words are always right on for the day. You can sign up for the daily buddhist quote at bighappybuddha.com. It always makes me think, often makes me smile and is a great way to start the day. Mindfulness is a wonderful thing.
