in the now

There are two ways to live in the present.

One is with disregard, ignorance, and fear. Going around in a rush, reaching for the short-term gain, to be felt here and now. With complete disdain for the process, let alone appreciation of the tiniest details.

Another one is with respect. With focus. With realization that all you really have is the current moment. This moment is fragile, fleeting. So you might as well treat it with care and concentration.

And whatever you do, here and now, you will do with consideration for the future and appreciation of the past. Because you know that's still the present, in disguise...
