Stability and freedom

Do not pursue the past. Do not lose yourself in the future

The past no longer is. The future has not yet come.

Look deeply at life as it is.

In the very here and now the practitioner dwells in stability and freedom.

We must be diligent today. To wait until tomorrow is too late.

Death comes unexpectedly –  How can we bargain with it

The sage calls the person who lives in mindfulness night and day “one who knows the better way to live”

The Buddha, Bhaddekaratta Sutta
