is this true?

by chrissie

We are so busy watching out for what’s ahead of us that we don’t take time to enjoy where we are.

Depends on where we are.

The past is our memories, the future is our imaginations, and the present is a gift, it is the here and now …. too many prefer to live in the past and keep repeating it even when it doesnt work for them ….. *sigh*

I always remember the bit from Star Wars when Yoda is talking to Luke Skywalker – saying that his mind is always somewhere else, never on what he’s doing/where he was (I forget the actual line – no doubt someone can supply it if they wish).

Sometimes when I’m not doing so well I use ‘this moment’ – what I’m doing at that very moment in time (usually something mundane and boring) to push out the other thoughts – to try and keep control. I can’t speak for anyone else though.

Depends on who the person is.
For some people where they are is not enjoyable and they do not have much to enjoy based on what they feel enjoyment is according to their perception.

Which is why it may be easier for some people who are ins seriously jacked up circumstances from the day of birth onwards to cope because they have no frame of reference to compare it to.

But some people who have a whole lot of hurtful events happen to them in an unending string with tidbits of pleasure fare a bit harder because the yearn to have those tidbits continue forever without the accompanying pain.

And despite the wisdom of changing one’s perspective, some people are just wired not to be able or want to do it.
When I tossed off the shackles of religion i found that everything else that we created as ideals was a delusion too. Yet hope and fear kept me hanging on to life by a miniscule atomic particle.
Those delusions are gone so now my delving into fantasy in different outlets supports me until my planned demise. That and mega dosing herbs.
