Why being anywhere other than the present moment is retarded
Death is everywhere, future projections can't be taken seriously, you could be dead by then!
A good friend and I were talking about this a few nights ago and it was so powerful to me. Everyone is so concerned about the future but damn the world could end at any second, who knows!
I think this is why our world has become so detached from the present moment. We all live sheltered lives and the concept of death has been lessened. Hundreds of years ago we lived in a dangerous world and people valued being alive and healthy.
This + 90% of stuff you anxiously worry about doesnt really happen or doesnt present a real problem. You just need to go with the flow and presently react, when something negative actually happens.
