Be Present!


Kalidasa was a Sanskrit Poet who lived at some point in about the 4th Century.  Several hundred years are pressed between this poem and today.  And, yet it feels fresh and beautiful and relevant.  It is, truly, a poem for this present moment!  Enjoy


Salutation To The Dawn

Look to this day! For it is life, the very life of life. 

In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth; 
The glory of action;
The splendor of achievement.

For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision.

But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
