Live Right Now
“To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” (George Orwell)
Yes, we are concerned for the future. It is wise and prudent to plan ahead, to save for things in the future, to know where we want to go and how we want to get there.
And, yes, we are concerned with our past. We have made mistakes, and we have do not wish to repeat the,. It is wise and prudent to examine our tendencies in order to grow and become better people.
But we dare not allow these concerns to overshadow the face that we live in the present. This moment is really all that we have, and, far too often, we overlook what is directly in front of us by focusing too much on the future or the past.
Seeing people right now is a struggle, but it is one that is truly worthwhile.
