There is no place to go except the present moment. If you are not here you are delusional, diluting the present moment, you have no power, no influence.
For you to be here everything has to die, the past, the future. You cannot bring a prepared response to this moment. If you already have an expectation of what its supposed to look like you are in trouble, its like stale bread. Allowing each moment its own breath will bring life to it.
