Life is in living NOW.
It’s all about the choices we make now, the habits we form now, the actions we take now, and the enlightenment we receive now.
Regretting about the past is like wasting time and energy on the impossible. And worrying about the future is like having no belief in your capabilities.
However, we don’t appreciate the living present because our ‘monkey minds,’ as Buddhists call them, vault from thought to thought like monkeys swinging from tree to tree.
