Be Here Now

I think one of the main problems facing people today is that not enough people exist in the here and now. They're constantly thinking ahead or thinking back and not participating in the present.

The angry commuter on the road who intentionally drives like an asshole is still angry though the argument was a ten minutes ago, or a half hour. He's not in the present, he's in the passed and he's pissed.

Conversations where the other person's attention wanders, they're thinking about their upcoming evening or Friday night or about hitting the beach on Saturday. They're not giving you their attention, much less full attention.

Its an easy but very important thing to remind yourself to do. Don't abandon the now to exist in the past or the future, Be Here Now. Don't Be Here later, Don't Be Here yesterday. Be Here Now. And don't cut off people on the highway so much.
