Now

I haven’t been a fan of the teachings that emphasize the beauty of the moment for some time now. I mean, if you’re being mugged in the moment that is qualitatively different than enjoying a tea ceremony. And yet it seems I have gone a little too far to the other extreme and often view the days and hours as replaceable cogs in the production line is modern life. Say what you will but life in modern, consumerist in society takes a lot of the uncertainty away and replaces it with train schedules, doctor’s appointments and calendar requests. Sometimes it can seem like impermanence just doesn’t operate at this level of life but that is clearly delusion.

So, today as I walked to the train, I took stock and realized that no matter what I am never have this moment that’s happening now back.  Yes, now was cold, slushy and boring but it’s what I have to work with. May I not miss the opportunity again.
