If we live in the now, as in this present conscious moment, then we can only have solutions to situations that arise right now. That’s real and can be dealt with or not, right now, and is free from suffering or anxiety and fear.
If we live in our mind and its endless repeating thought and projections into the unknown future that doesn’t exist outside our head, then we have a life filled with problems and suffering from the fear of what might happen. It’s out of our control and cannot be dealt with, it’s pure psychological fear.
Solutions happen now and are real, problems occur in the future and are generated in our mind. It’s a simple choice we can all make, now.
