Living in the present sounds like a great idea but are you always able to stay there? Do you often wander into the past or the future? Maybe it's a good idea to think back on wonderful experiences and the opportunities the past has given you. Perhaps it's also a good idea to think ahead to a great future and make plans for it. So then why is there an emphasis on staying in the present? It's all about how you hold the past and future and their effect on your emotions. If you're drawn to past negative experiences or are fearful about the future, then it might not be helpful to go there. The present is an expansive place of oneness even if the immediate past or future feels limiting. There's no negative opinion about each moment of pure "what is". Maybe you won't be happy in the future and have been unhappy in the past. Those are only in your mind.

Your life can be so much more happy and calm when you focus on the immediate moment you're in and let time and space have its own dance around you. Learning to experience being present is a great art and Kevin Murphy's book "The Three Rooms" can really help you find your way.
