    Very interesting.  I believe in being spontaneous and not postponing  acts of service. I don't very often act on it however.  Just watching the sun set  helps me simply just be. When I know I am being present in an integrated manner,  I am peaceful. When I am  following moderation in all things  I move toward peacefulness. Being in the present is doing it now. When one is paying attention to what is happening as it is happening in and around one, one is probably compassionate, patient, and wise. Thank you for the opportunity to respond. Warm and kind regards to everyone

     Two phrases come to mind after reading the passage and the comments:

    "Do all things with Love." In love we can only be present -

    “It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
