Living In The Moment

What I'm trying to do these days "Live In The Moment".
Some wonderful Rabindranath Tagore quotes.
When I read him, I feel like I could burst open...his words are so moving... 
Hope you enjoy them as much as I did today. 
“The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.”

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”

“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in you. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.”

“If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door- or i'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.”

“We live in the world when we love it.”

“The smile that flickers on a baby’s lips when he sleeps- does anyone know where it was born? Yes, there is a rumor that a young pale beam of a crescent moon touched the edge of a vanishing autumn cloud, and there the smile was first born in the dream of a dew-washed morning.”

“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.”

“Love is an endless mystery, because there is no reasonable cause that could explain it.”

“When the heart is hard and parched up, come upon me with a shower of mercy.
When grace is lost from life, come with a burst of song.
When tumultuous work raises its din on all sides shutting me out from beyond, come to me, my lord of silence, with thy peace and rest.
When my beggarly heart sits crouched, shut up in a corner, break open the door, my king, and come with the ceremony of a king.
When desire blinds the mind with delusion and dust, O thou holy one, thou wakeful, come with thy light and thy thunder.”
“YOU are the big drop of dew under the lotus leaf,
I am the smaller one on its upper side,'
said the dewdrop to the lake.”

“Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.”

-Rabindranath Tagore
