The road to peace and happiness is paved within the moment.
"There is no place but here, there is no time but now." One of the greatest quotes, and also holds the answer to peace. Every worry, fear, anger, and pretty much every negative thought you think you have is either miles behind you or miles ahead of you. Peace, love, and joy are built into the here and now. even the rememberance of love and peace is overanalyzed and nowhere to be compared with the love you are currently feeling. When you focus on the past moments of joy, love, and peace, you are covering up the love, peace, and joy that is in this moment. The moment of now. The perfect moment. There truly are no ordinary moments. You have to sometimes just open your eyes and see the perfection in the moment. for every moment was chosen, and every moment is perfect, because nothing perfect exist outside of God! Life itself is perfect. Life itself is God. The illusion of imperfection is the moment that dwells on the moments outside of itself. The perfection of a moment is the moment that dwells within itself. So, which do you, choose? The past, the future, or now?
