There is only NOW.
The past is gone, the future has yet to be, the only reality is NOW.
There is no other place to be but HERE, NOW.
If my thoughts are on something that’s happened previously then I am missing the present. My body can be in the now-moment, but where my mind is is where my existence is. If my thoughts are on something that has yet to happen, then I am missing the present. The only moment that is real is the one that IS. What WAS and what WILL BE are not reality. If I want to be fully alive in life, fully living, then I must be HERE, NOW.
