Another post about living in the present

Here are several famous quotes about living in the present.  I just read these in a blog post with many many more similar quotes – all found on  Fitting, isn’t it, that there is a whole website on living in the present.

Reminder to self to practice living in the present always.


Mother Teresa (1910-1997); Nun, missionary

“I believe in person to person. Every person is Christ to me, and since there is only one Jesus, that person is the one person in the world at that moment.”

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)  Physicist
“I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.”
“People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”

Jesus Christ
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own.” Matthew 6:24, The Bible

Abraham Maslow (1908-1970)  Psychologist, Maslow’s hierarchy of needs
“The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.”

About GettingCloserToOurGod

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York. Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life. After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature. In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God. Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
