Love Poetry: The Present Moment
25 Feb 2013
The Present Moment
First Rays of the Sun
Sufi & Bhakti
These songs emphasize that the present moment is all we have! Reminds me of a quote from the movie Kung Fu Panda: "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present." :)
Zindagi Ik Safar Hai Suhana
This song encourages us to smile and be joyful, cognizant that death is possible at any moment.
Aane Wala Pal Jaane Wala Hai
A song with a simple message: spend a lifetime in the present moment. Reminds me of a dialogue in Kung Fu Panda (2008): "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present"!
Pal Do Pal Ka Saath Hamara
A vibrant qawwali that reminds us that the length of our association with anybody is unpredictable. Be grateful for whatever time somebody spends with us. Enjoy the present moment. Dance and make merry simply in honor of being alive!
