Our mind and body have a tempestuous relationship. Tension is often caused by one simple thing – the body is the only thing that truly lives in the present. Our minds enjoy the freedom to wander into the future and particularly enjoy spending time in the past.
The Roman Emperor, and Philosopher, Marcus Aurelius wrote this on the subject,
“No-one can lose either the past or the future – how could anyone be deprived of what he does not possess.”
Yes, let’s dream the dreams and plan the strategies for the future but more importantly let’s get out there and take the action. The only thing that truly matters is happening right now!
