If the future of “to do” is “to die”, then the present is “today”.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. When you wake from sleep, you are immediately gifted a present. It is a present moment of life? Is it a present moment of something more? Where will you allow this moment you’ve been gifted to take you? Every moment ahead ultimately ends in the moment of death, so what tale will you weave with your moments from this point to that point?

    How will your moments die? How will your moments pass on?

    Will you gift your next moment with happiness and peace and balance and bliss?

    Will you gift your next moment with thoughtful consideration to ponder for moments to come?

    Will you gift your next moment with something you’d rather not witness?

    How you choose your present is up to you – But there is great power in knowing there is a choice to be made.

  2. Yes. Perhaps that power is the greatest present of all.
