The there and then where this was written really sucked. Fortunately the here and now came along, and as every moment, this too will pass.

Zen my ass

Some times you just have to live
in between breaths.

Being present in the here and now
is supposed to be a virtue

Well let me tell you that right
here and right now

I came back again, in need of a laugh. This is funny on so many levels the clocks stand still. (better in Swedish)

lmao..this is so zen.

Yeah, I also have trouble with that attachment thing. If I was a good Buddhist, I'd point out that, if you find any state of being to be virtuous, your goose already is cooked.

Sometimes it's hard to take the Buddhist advice not to judge thoughts and events in our lives. A lot of the time, it's just a matter of waiting for a change for the better.

Fabulous poem with zing and a message all of us can relate to.

You are so right! I have great respect for the ideas of zen, but the right now can SUCK, and mine does too, but the future ... well, it's all full of possibilities, so why not live there for now?
Well said!
