It’s so easy to get caught in the trap of thinking that what I want in life is somewhere in the future, isn’t it? We hear the suggestion to be in the now, yet it often still feels like when things are different in the future, they’ll be better, or if things were more like they were in the past, things would be better.
Time really flies, and when we forget about the present moment, we miss the whole point of life: living and experiencing life itself!
Here’s a hilariously wonderful video by Alan Watts talking about life as if it were a musical performance.
This moment. Right now. This is it. This is why we’re here.
Everything is here and now. There’s nowhere else to go!
What song are you singing?
What’s your dance?
