There Is Only One Moment - Grasshopper

That moment is the one you're in now.

You may say you "had a moment" in the past but it's no longer a moment, it's a memory.


You may anticipate a moment in the future but it's a projection, not a present moment experience.


From birth to death there is only one moment. You may have a collection of sequential experiences in your lifetime but those experiences fall inside an infinite space known as a moment.


Now is the only moment. It was here before we were here and will remain long after we're gone.


There is no continuum or boundaries for a moment. It has no beginning and it has no end. Quoting the ancient Chinese sage Lao-tzu, "Amidst the worldly comings and goings, observe how endings become beginnings." 


Cutting to the chase, a moment is infinite, not a series of events. The only way I can feebly attempt to explain a moment is with an analogy. Imagine a clock face with two hands. The hands change positions; the face never does. The face is the moment that the hands of time can never represent.


It may sound cliché to say there is no time but consider this: There is no better time than now to appreciate the moment you're in. It's the experience of a lifetime.


All the best,
