Being in the Present Moment - Quotes

Namaste Everyone,

Yoga and meditation teach us to being able to stay present with ourselves.  We learn to become mindful, being aware of whatever is happening right now.  We learn acceptance of “just being” in the moment.  Here are some profound quotes of being in the present moment.  Hope you enjoy them and benefit from them. 

Sat Nam – Cathi
