Just Be Here


Be here now

This great piece of advice comes from the well-known spiritual teacher, Ram Dass.

We should ask ourselves: Where am I?
Answer: Here.
Then ask ourselves: What time is it?
Answer: Now.

We should keep repeating the questions and answers to ourselves until we really feel it. Keep repeating until you really feel grounded in present moment reality. Let all the thoughts about the future or the past to just slip away.

It’s handy to write the questions on a sticky-note and stick it to your computer so you can continuously see it throughout the day and reflect on it.

“Life can be found only in the present moment. The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
