“Life needs only one thing: to be rooted in the present.
The past is no more, it is dead; the future is not yet, it is unborn.
Only the present is. Only the present is alive. When you are herenow,
life flows in you. When you are herenow, you are in God.
Live dangerously! Live joyously! Live without fear, live without
guilt; live without any fear of hell or any greed for heaven. Just
Live deeply, live totally, live wholly, so when death comes and knocks
at your door you are ready — ready like a ripe fruit to drop.
… And remember: Life is insecurity. Each moment is a move into more
and more insecurity. It is a gamble. One never knows what is going to
happen. And it is beautiful that one never knows. If it was
predictable, life would not be worth living. If everything was as you
would like it to be, and everything was certain, you would not be a
man at all, you would be a machine. Only for machines is everything
secure and certain”.
