Does you watch work?

Most of us are what we are because of our past. What I mean is that we tend to look at the present and/or future through the screen of the past. The future, for the masses, is a mere projection of the past. i.e. Take someone who was thrown in the water as a child and almost drowned, to a body of water. In their minds, is where the danger is. There is nothing about water that should have someone shook like that. (Your body is 70-80% watet. We tend to lose focus of the now because of the veil of yesterday and tomorrow.

The secret to life is not simple, but a single step towards it is. If you can understand what it means to learn to unlearn then you have found oneof the many roads to enlightenment. Basically it's saying, one must break/free oneself from his/her habits. [all of us are tense, even a lil, all day. imagine the AMOUNT of energy spent.]

Back on the chain, understand what it means to live in the moment (not to be confused with living on the edge). We lose awareness of the present when we even reflect upon the past and future, b/c living is done in the now. It's nothing that we can do about "back in the day" or "one of these days". All we have is "right now". I remember a saying: "Live today so that you won't be ashamed of yesterday or afraid of tomorrow." In closing, you must learn to live life from second to second to feel the river of life.
