Have you ever come across someone who claims to be living in the now?

 

treat everything as an end not just a means to an end

the past is filled with regret

future, anxiety

only the present moment exists

pay attention to all the sense perceptions associated with the activity

follow the breath

now we need to read ten books to be in the present moment

 

Even when the ego seems to be concerned with the present, it is not the present that it sees: It misperceives it completely because it looks at it through the eyes of the past.

It’s much more mundane and personal than that

rather than the breath or anything else that has spiritual connotations,

he thing right infront of our face that’s stopping us

it’s based on the need to not be here

doesn’t need to be some existential reason

could just be the message you were avoiding sending your mother or your messy room

 

so even being in the present moment and non-striving becomes an objective

maze analogy

FOMO You could be always doing something better

 

Stuck in goal-driven doing mode 

to want the present is to

The future and the past
