It is a human condition to always look for something, to chase dreams and happiness, never being completely satisfied with where we are and what we have. It sure is a positive thing to always look for ways to improve, but does it seem rational to always live in the past or future? Most humans almost never live in the moment nor accept the life as it is.
I have learned a lot from my favorite spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle. Just like most people I used to live in the past or the future without even realizing it. Actually my life was happening while I was thinking about the past or the future, which only existed in my thoughts. It sounds sad, doesn’t it? Can you recognize your own thought pattern?
