Your life is not lying in wait in the future like a wild animal or some ominous destiny.
Nor is it hidden in the heavens, like a paradise or promise.
Nor is it shut up in the cave or the prison of your past.
It is here and now;
It is what you live and what you do.
At the heart of being;
At the heart of the present;
At the heart of everything -In the great current of life, of reality.
By: Andre Comte-Sponville
