Pure Intention : Appreciate the Now

Something to ponder on this beautiful day ….

When asked what surprised him most about humanity the Dalai Lama answered:

“Man sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die; and then he dies having never really lived.

Every day I make a conscious effort to live in the moment and appreciate what is. It doesn’t always work but, at least I’m trying.

Life is a gift….cherish every moment!
