Balancing Act

Living for the moment, in Those Days, was a justification for drinking.  “There’s no time like the present, and what is the present if we aren’t enjoying ourselves, and how can we be at optimum enjoyment if we’re not also at maximum party?”

Living in the moment, for These Days, is a delicate balance.  “‘Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted,'” co-mingles with “‘Every day I’m hustlin’.'”  A pull in two opposite directions results in scrambling for steady ground, and in that moment of fear and panic is where we find ourselves projecting.  Expecting.  Harboring resentments.

Yin and yang; not yin or yang.  Duality is a simpler concept, but the laws of science demonstrate a kaleidoscope of forces stretching in, through, over, and under infinite directions at any given moment.

The trick is to focus on just the one — the one you’re experiencing right now.  Wholly absorb this on the basis of its own merits.

Getting the most of this moment, and the next, and the one after…practice long enough, and you’ll find you’ve built yourself a rich, fulfilled, and present life.

Narrow it may be at times, but still: forever grateful to stroll my whole soul down the path.
