Anaïs Nin Quote on Growing

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”

~Anaïs Nin

Eckhart Tolle Quote on Presence

“Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry ~ all forms of fear ~ are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.”

~Eckhart Tolle
