Step into the present moment and your worries lose their potency.
“We live in the world as separate-seeming individuals who are, at one and the same time, one part of an enormously complex symphony of existence. It doesn’t really matter which, if any, wisdom tradition you follow or whether or not you feel there is an Everything or Nothing.
It matters not whether you are an atheist or Buddhist, a Catholic or a skeptic (or in some ways all four). What matters is that you switch onto presence and find your still-point within, where you can always take refuge. The Zen master Bodhidharma told us: ‘The fools of this world look for sages far away. They don’t believe that the wisdom in their own mind is the sage.’
You can provide yourself with an unlimited supply of love. Bring love into every moment, and with it you’ll melt away pain, suffering, and injustice.
Feel stillness inside and you’ll find that any anxiety about the future fades away. Experience Presence in your hands, head, and heart, and you’ll come alive to the pure creative potential of this moment, here, right now, to be whatever you want it to be…”
– Nick Seneca Jankel, author of Switch On
