You make your decisions in the present, and the present exists out of time; it is a tiny moment where two periods — the past and the future — meet. In the present you are always free to make your choice.
A wise man was asked what was the most important time, person, and thing in life. He answered, “The most important time is the present time, because at this time a person has power over himself. The most important person is the one with whom you deal at present, because there is no guarantee that you will ever be able to deal with any other person in the world. The most important thing is to love this person, because everyone is sent into this world with the sole purpose of loving other people.”
Only when we use every minute of our life will we know that we are eternal.
A most dangerous temptation is the temptation to prepare to live, instead of living. The future does not belong to you. Therefore, remember to live the best way you know NOW. The only perfection necessary is perfection in love, which can be reached only in the present. It’s why we came into this world.
The present is the moment in which the divine nature of life is revealed. Let us respect our present time; God exists in this time.
