Carpe Diem #1031 live in the present

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome in the present ... fitting the title of todays episode. This month we are looking at "the power of words" through quote of known and unknown people. Today I have a quote by Buddha (563 BC-483 BC).
As you all know (maybe) haiku has a spiritual meaning too. That meaning is based in Buddhism and therefore Buddha cannot be missed in this month of quotes.

Buddha under the Bodhi Tree
Here is the quote for your inspiration:

[...] "Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment." [...] Buddha

I think you are all familiar with the story about Buddha. One of His last acts was to find Enlightenment while sitting under a Bodhi Tree. He finally became Enlightened and founded the base for Buddhism.

PS. I am hopelessly behind with commenting so I hope to catch up soon.

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until August 26th at noon (CET). Have fun!
