"Awareness is sensory, not magical: it exists.  Everything that exists does so Here and Now."

Gary Yontef

"In times of pain, when the future is too terrifying to contemplate and the past too painful to remember, I have learned to pay attention to right now . . .  Each moment, taken alone, is always bearable.  In the exact now, we are all, always, all right."

Julia Cameron
