Reality is what is happening in, with, around, and right now.
Sanity is living with present.
Insanity is living from the past.
The key to living authentically, rather than habitually,
is engaging the present.
We cannot do that while we are locked in the past.
As long as we "paste the past over the present" and
live today as if it were yesterday, we have no hope.
Change is not just possible but inevitable,
but only if I live in the present.
When you live without the baggage of the past,
when you encounter the present with fresh eyes,
you discover something amazing:
behind the insane you, the crazy you,
there is a greater you.
A sane you. A pure You.
The Hindus call it Atman
and the Westerners call it Soul.
A unique manifestation
that is your true self.
