Video: “IT IS ALWAYS NOW” (a must watch)

A bit overwhelming in the philosophical/scientific realm but the message is clear – LiFE is NOW…®, It is always now.

part of us always knows
that we’re just a doctor’s visit away or a phone call away from being starkly
reminded
with the fact of our own mortality
or of those closest to us

to suddenly
be thrown out of the normal course of your life
and just be given the full time job of not dying
or caring for someone who is
but the one thing people tend to realize
at moments like this is that they wasted a lot of time
when life was normal

you’ll spend most of your time in life
tacitly presuming you’ll live forever
it’s like watching a bad movie for the fourth time
or bickering with your spouse

really live in the present moment
what what’s the alternative?
it is always now
however much you feel you may need to plan for the future
to anticipate it, to mitigate the risks,
the reality of your life is now

the reality of your life
is always now

if you want to be happy
the past is a memory
it’s a thought
arising in the present
the future is merely anticipated, it is another thought
arising now
what we truly have
is this moment

are we are
continually hoping to become happy in the future
and the future never arrives
even when we think we’re in the present moment we’re, we’re in very
subtle ways, always looking over its shoulder
anticipating what’s coming next
we’re always solving a problem
and it’s possible to simply drop your problem
if only for a moment
and enjoy whatever is true of your life in the present
