The brilliant Ram Dass hits home with this. People talk about “living in the moment” but what gets lost is that much of the sadness and grief we feel is because we’re not living in this moment. We’re living in the past — or in what might happen.
As with most of Ram Dass’ sage writing, the depths are uncovered by pondering it. Meditating on it. How does this apply in your life?
So the thought for today is that there is only this moment. That’s all. So don’t waste time in the past or with “what if” imaginings.
Live in the here and now. This moment.
Only this moment.
