Then and now
"Time is not a line, but a series of now points."
-- Taisen Deshimaru
We understand time as a continuum. Our memories link the moments of the past and our imaginations draw on the patterns of our memories to project the future.
If we leave the movies of the mind behind, time can only be experienced now -- moment by precious moment. Open in awareness to what is happening right now. Appreciate all that is. Immerse yourself in the joy and wonder of every now and life will be a gift.
"The responsibility for both present and future is in our own hands. If we live right today, then tomorrow has to be right."
-- Eknath Easwaran
