Nobody wants to live in the present when it is unpleasant. Here are some incentives:
1. We can become our own hero – the movies that inspire us are about people who endure suffering and rise above it, right? That’s you at this moment. You are the star. Shine!
2. We need the training – otherwise, we will be wimps.
3. This moment has hidden treasures – and we must be present to win, to find them, to see them. Trading the moment in for the next is always a bad move. Bird in hand better than two in bush. Really. Our time is limited…a millisecond in eternity.
4. Present people are sexy – and refreshing, and rare, and like meditation music.
Make Thoreau proud…and all of creation. Take the advice…find your eternity in each moment.
