If only we could live our life as if each moment were our last...
we would connect with that essential part of ourselves that does not die. Ask yourself, is my life equipping me for my death?
Because you become what you practice. What you are is what you have been. What you will be is what you are now.

"We are always getting ready to live, but never living." Ralph Waldo Emerson

For Today: I do not think "tomorrow" or "later" or "another time". I think NOW. Do it now, say it now, commit myself now. What can be done "someday", I can do today-just for the fun of it. {OA-For Today}
