Do not lose yourself in the future.
The past no longer is.
The future has not yet come.

Looking deeply at life as it is in the very here and now;
the practitioner dwells in stability and freedom.

– Anthony de Mello


We have not come here to take prisoners
But to surrender ever more deeply
To freedom and joy.
