When we give our all to this very moment, this very moment gives all back to us. When we give our all to the past, or to the future, this very moment fades away and the treasure is lost.
Sometimes we want to escape this present moment. Sometimes we never want this present moment to end.
In the end, all moments change, regardless if good or bad.
If we try to escape this moment because it is a painful moment, then we become fearful of returning back.
If we try to hold on to this moment because it is awesome, then we risk being left behind as the awesomeness fades and changes and becomes the past.
Just returning ourselves to the right here, right now, be there pain or happiness, allows us the chance to become alive again. Then, in this alive state, we can begin to understand and begin to realize the nature of ourselves. And hey, we may realize we are not so bad after all!
