    I live in the present,

    focussed on my day, what I'm going to eat, what's today and a little view of the future - Although I know what I want- and almost zero on the past. Emotionally zero. About the bad it's a big zero. I remind things, more the things I liked, course, but I forget fast the pain, a...

    All We Have is Today What has happened in the

    past, is over. We can't go back, all we can do is learn from it. Some people are trapped, stuck and have let the past define themselves. We don't know what is going to happen in the future...best laid plans are oft in vain. All we can do is learn from our past and move...

    The Magic Lantern

    A good friend of mine asked me today: "What would you wish for if you had a lantern with a genie?" The question gave me pause because I am not much of a wishful thinker. Hadn't really thought about that since I was a kid. My first instinct is that I have to think it carefully. It...

    The Chance Of Humming

    A man standing on two logs in a river might do all right floating with the current while humming in the now.   Though if one log is tied to a camel, who is also heading south along the bank –at the same pace- all could still be well with the world unless the camel...

    I used to live in the past counting my old

    hurts, or in the imagination of a future of how I’d like it to be and feel sad that I am not living it. It is a way of always putting my powers in other people, or in the hands of the “circumstances” and wait for them to change. I was someone who always blames others or...

    There Is Only Now.

    What does it mean to live in the present moment? The present moment is all there is. Forget, right now, about the ideas you have of past, present, and future. None of that exists. There is only NOW. The past only exists as a memory that is occuring right NOW. The future only...

    I Choose To

    I cannot look back and dwell on all of it because every time I do it sets me back. I can't think about tomorrow because if it doesn't get here then I wasted today's time on something that was never guaranteed to begin with. To do either seems like the ultimate waste of time to me...
