| | p.52 in the part about Focus
Time isn't a disposable resource. You can't spend time. No matter what you do or don't do, time passes on its own. You have no choice whether to spend time or not; your only choice is how you direct your focus in the present moment. |
In reality, you're never in the past or future. You exist only in the here-and-now. Even when you remember the past or envision the future, you're still thinking those thoughts in the present. All you have is right now, and that's all you'll ever have. You can't control the passage of time, but you can control your present focus. That's it - no past, no future, just right now.
One of my present favorite songs is about that: Now by Linda Pettersson Bratt | Myspace Music
When there's no way out there's still a way through. 'Cause NOW is all there is, so peaceful and still, in NOW you don't worrry about what happened or what will. 'Cause NOW never ends and NOW has never been and all of your answers are waiting for you here, NOW.
