Welcome to season 2…, Mindful Quotes, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. A series of my own fresh and original inspirational quotes…. Of course, we can all benefit from being inspired…, and many of us have our favorite quote.

Some of you may be searching for yours…. That one quote that inspires you to be a better, healthier, and happier You…. Of course, Success as well…, embodies these attributes.

There is a quote here for almost everyone. Listen for yours.

Hello. I am William Garcia, Philosopher, author of the book titled, Now O’ Clock. Being Mindful, it Always is, and…, your host.

Being a Mindfulness practitioner…, and before I open with the quote of this day, I invite you to join me in a mindfulness affirmation… Ready…. First…, take a deep breath with me…. That felt good, right? Now…, repeat after me…, It is Now O’ Clock…. I am… I am here … I am here now… I am open to be inspired.  

Now…, let’s take another deep breath.

Of course…, you can affirm your mindfulness and do the breathing exercise on your own or with someone else, and I strongly recommend you do. Make it at least a twice daily routine. But if you also want to do it with me…, let’s do it.

 I believe this mindfulness affirmation will help tune your sense of presence…, your mindful sense of presence in the only occasion that matters in your life…Now.

It is Now O’ Clock…, time for the quote of this day.

Episode 7

A quote titled: SPEED OF NOW

Life happens at the speed of Now. Slow down or you will miss it…, unquote. 

 Did you answer the two questions I posed the last time I talked to you? Yes? No? Not sure? …. Either way, here they are again. Just how fast do I want to go? Just how fast do I need to go … to live?

Modernity can be unrelenting, as you know. It is so much so, that we are fast approaching Mindlessness at a Time when we most need to be mindful of our own Presence…, of our own Being…, in the Now

At some point, we must become aware and take control because…, it is true. Today, we’re constantly distracted and moving so fast we keep missing the Present. We need to slow down and set a pace we can control and live with. Not a pace set for us by the Beast.

On the other hand, if you’re good with the pace it sets. Well…, that is all that matters, right?

Listen. We cannot live faster than the speed of Now. We just can’t. It is impossible…, and I am not saying anyone tries.

But the pace of modernity is so fast it becomes a struggle to have your body in the Now and your mind in the future at the same time. Psychologists say you can be stressed and not realize it. Think about it.

I know. It is not easy. But you still cannot put Now on hold.  If insanity is doing the same thing over and over…, and expecting a different result…, then what should we call trying to live faster than the speed of Now and not being aware you are? …. Mindlessness?

Do you know how long is a lifetime?

Tune in next time for the quote of the day…. It may be that one quote you are searching for…. That quote that ignites your passion and gears you up for achievement…, or…, it may be the quote that…, as you journey through life…, illuminates your path…, brings you peace…, love…, and happiness. Share what you find here with someone else. It may be a quote…, that for them…, may set them…, or keep them on a path to a better life.
