The Gift

What is the present if not the very gift of life itself? We can’t access the past except by memory and so often it feels like those memories are fleeting. Moreover, the future is a wide open book. Our choices are so overwhelming at times the uncertainty can be a major source of anxiety. The present, however, is here and now. It’s immediate. It’s in our face. Sure, it can be messy or uncomfortable, but we know it intimately because our senses are uniquely designed to register it. In a sense, we might say that since our experience of the present is all we’ve really got, isn’t it worth trying to be more centered and focused on it?
