Live in the moment quotes – Others

Stress is the distance between where your thoughts are and where your life is happening.

― Dean Jackson

If my happiness at this moment consists largely in reviewing happy memories and expectations, I am but dimly aware of this present. I shall still be dimly aware of the present when the good things that I have been expecting come to pass. For I shall have formed a habit of looking behind and ahead, making it difficult for me to attend to the here and now. If, then, my awareness of the past and future makes me less aware of the present, I must begin to wonder whether I am actually living in the real world.
― Alan Watts

― John Newton

I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.
