"Thus you can throw yourself flat on the ground, stretched out 
upon Mother Earth, with the certain conviction that you are one 
with her and she with you.  You are as firmly established, as 
invulnerable as she, indeed a thousand times firmer and more 
invulnerable.  As surely as she will engulf you tomorrow, so surely 
will she bring you forth anew to new striving and suffering.  And 
not merely "some day:" Now, today, every day she is bringing you 
forth, not once but thousands of times, just as every day she 
engulfs you a thousand times over.

For eternally and always there is only now, one and the same now; 
the present is the only thing that has no end."

- Erwin Schrodinger
