Look to this day,
for it is life, the very breath of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the realities of your existence;
the bliss of growth,
the glory of action,
the splendor of beauty.
For yesterday is only a dream,
and tomorrow is but a vision.
But today, well lived,
makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow
a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
A poem by Kālidāsa who was a 5th century Classical Sanskrit writer, widely regarded as the greatest poet and dramatist in the Sanskrit language. I came across his poem this morning and thought it a good way to begin Sunday Serenity.
Last week I had just discovered Mooji. He was such a delight, here is another one of his meditations. I hope you enjoy it.
