…..'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'…..

Menorise [men-oh-rIse]; the condition of inculcation

Image copyright to Yamini Ali MacLean
Nothing is ever as it seems.  We look and we assess in a split second.  That can be a split second which gives us everything, or takes it all away.  It can be a split second that decides staying or going.  It can be the split second in which life transforms.

So much hinges on it.  This very now.  Is it not incumbent upon us to ensure our split second is the clearest and purest we can make it?

Remove all idle thoughts.  Release the past and leave
tomorrow alone.

Be present.

Be pure.

Be clear.

Make this split second count.

(A repost of an early Menorise... It also sometimes pays to revisit!)


  1. Oh, you're so right. The past is gone and the future may never come. I don't know if I have mastered the art of living in the moment, but I continue to try because I believe it is the right and only way.

  2. That really chimes with me after the events of this week, Yam and DH and I will be trying to hold on to living this way.

  3. Happiness depends on letting go of the past and looking forward to the future but not depending on it to fit all you woes.
