Thinking about time and the present moment. As I understand it Zen focuses on becoming aware in the moment. The past and the future are illusions. Now is all there is. Well that oversimplifies life. I think life is like a journey in a car with your past trajectory influencing your present and leading to your future destination. Instantaneously you are only here and now but then you are heading somehwere faster or slower. Of course you can turn and change directions at any time. But you often continue down a path. As in inertia.

Still here and now is what you have to work with. Today is the first day of the rest of your life and could be the last day of your life. Not that you want to spend your money like it is the last day, as most likely it is not!

My compromise with reality is to try to accomplish at least one thing each day. And to have frequent orgasms, even if they have to be self-administered. This way even if it is my last day on Earth, I will know I went out with a smile on my face today!
