What does it take to create a successful moment?

Just what is a moment anyway? Webster’s defines it as an indefinitely short amount of time. In Zen the moment is the present now. In my yoga classes every day we practice what is called a Zen moment. We stop close our eyes, locate ourselves on the mat and take in three deep long breathes. The experience teaches us to stop and connect in the present where the reality of life exists. Each moment leads to the next. What we create in a moment determines the next moment. And isn’t the success of life measured by the quality of the consecutive moment of our lives and not the quantitative accumulation of time?

Stop and really connect with the moment – be here right now. Relax and let the moment unfold pure and unadulterated. That’s a successful moment.
