Most of us live very little in the present.
If we could watch our thoughts,
we would be surprised to see how much time
we spend in the past or future –
or simply daydreaming, out of time altogether.
Very seldom can we say we are fully present
in the present moment.
Yet now is the only time there is.
The glorious reality of Spring seems to help me stay in the moment,
at least for a moment.
It made me think of this quote from an important teacher in my life.
Easwaran's focus on living in the moment
is one of my most difficult challenges.
