Here and now.
That’s everything I have.
Everyone says it. It’s written everywhere.
Here is the only place where I can do something.
Now is the only time I have to act.
It’s self-evident if I think about it.
Then, how comes that it is such a struggle to be really and fully present, here and now?
Why my mind keeps wandering in the past and the future? In places where, whatever may be happening, I have no control or influence right now?
No matter how hard I try, the present moment is still elusive.
Wait a minute.
“Stop trying to hit me and hit me!”
This is what Morpheus tells Neo during their first fight in the Matrix.
What if I’m trying too much?
Maybe I should just be, stop trying to be present in what I do, and just focus on what I do.
Because, in the end, no matter where my mind flies, I can only be and do here and now.
