Living in the moment

Life is a series of moments. When we try to make sense of it, we make an image from specific points of time from the past. And make our own meaning. Like the illusory image created when a sparkler is whirled around swiftly.

Enjoy the moment!

Like Rumi says:

“Every moment the world and we are renewed, Yet we are ignorant of this renewing forever and aye.

Life, like a stream of water, is renewed and renewed, Though it wears the appearance of continuity in form .

That seeming continuity arises from its swift renewal, As when a single spark of fire is whirled round swiftly.

If a single spark be whirled round swiftly, It seems to the eye a continuous line of fire.”
