Nothing is as transient as time. Everything except for right now is an illusion - the past is gone and tomorrow is not here and yet that is where most of us spend our time.
It is very difficult to stay connected to the present moment, especially with all the outside influences that occupy our minds. I try to be still at least one moment each day just to experience nothing but being here, right now.
“Precious time is slipping away, you’re only King for a day” – Van Morrison
