Life has is always in the now. Even the past and future are only ideas in the now. Both are imaginary and keep us in the dream state. Our forays into the past or future are actually a misuse of mindfulness. We are using it to create an illusion which carries away into a dreamland. This dream keeps us in a state of fear, anxiety and suffering. The secret is to become mindful of the dream. When we become mindful of the dream, we are awakening. The past and the future no longer control us. We are lead to be in a state of equanimity. Slowly we begin to remain present in the now. The ripples in the mind now begin to subside. We find the clarity see the beauty of life and enjoy its bliss.
