These views in Dr. Tae Yun Kim s garden reminded me of a quote from one of her many books, “Seven Steps to Inner Power:”

“Living in the now – Your Silent Master speaks to you always in the present moment, because now is all there is.  Therefore, now is where reality is, and now is where the creative moment is.

Why is now the only creative moment?  When it was yesterday, you experienced it as now.

Today’s reality

Cherries on tree

Future memory of tomorrow

When you experience tomorrow, it will be now.  At this moment, and every moment thereafter, it is now.  it is never tomorrow or yesterday.  What are you thinking right now?  What concepts and emotions are you holding right now?  Whatever they are, they are in the present moment and on the way to becoming manifest.

The key to listening to yourself, your Silent Master and creating harmony in all your life is to live only in the present moment.  Do you do that?

Don’t be surprised if you find that an examination of your thought habits reveals that you n ever or hardly ever live in the present moment.  When it is now, how often are you mentally somewhere else, thinking or worrying about what just happened or what’s going to happen?

True awareness means being right where you are, right now, without fear or worry or obsession about the future or past.”
