“Each of us has experienced moments in our lives when we are fully alive – when we know – without thinking – that life is exactly as it is in this moment. In such moments, we have no wish for it to be different, or better, or more. We have no disappointment, no comparison with ideals, no sense that it is not what we worked for. We feel no protective or defensive urge – and have no desire to hold on – to store up – or to save.  Such moments are perfect in themselves. We experience them as being complete.”
