The quiet moments
    #2523623 - 04/04/04 04:14 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Every moment is a miracle. Be still, look closely, and you can see it.
The simple, quiet moments, that are so commonplace you don't easily remember them, are just as special as the glorious, unforgettable ones. Because those quiet, simple moments are the ones that shape who you are.

It's easy to sense life's many treasures in the rare moments of grandeur. Yet when you can also appreciate the value of the quiet, simple moments, then you've tapped into something truly magnificent.

The common moments matter because there are so many of them. When you live each one to the fullest, then life is full indeed.

The big, exciting moments give life its spice. The small, quiet ones provide the substance.

In every moment there is a special treasure. Give your best to them all.

I agree, Clever. We too readily dismiss the common moments, waiting for the big moments. It is the common moments to which we should pay special attention, because you never know when they will lead into bigger moments. And sometimes we aren't there to see the bigger moments. Everything has a reason and a rhyme and a place in this big old universe.

I accept this moment and all it encompasses. :wink:

Every single moment is unique and is never going to be experienced again. Myself, I keep aware and conscious of what is going on in every moment, accepting it as reality. It is so much easier to be content and happy when you take life one moment at a time. :laugh:

It is a crime to ourselves to seperate ourselves from the moment and the experience offered within the moment. There is no seperation from ourself and everything presenting itself in our environment and in our thoughts; there is no seperation from the experiencer and the Experience. We create that seperation ourselves and we suffer because of it.
Peace. :mushroom2:

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you

"In every moment there is a special treasure. Give your best to them all."

"We too readily dismiss the common moments, waiting for the big moments."

Good calls, guys.  It's interesting that this thread was made.  When I woke up this morning next to my girlfriend, I felt complete appreciation of this tiny moment...near bliss.  The bed was warm, she was soft and asleep, french vanilla brewing, and the wind was singing through the open window...Spikey (her terrier) was resting on the foot of the bed...heaven, man :smile:

If I could maintain the same level of appreciation with each moment for the rest of my life, it'd be heaven everyday.  With some effort and practice, maybe I could.
