Lost in Thought

In daily life, we are often lost in thought. We get lost in regrets about the past, and fears about the future. We get lost in our plans, our anger, and our anxiety. At such moments, we cannot really be here for ourselves. We are not really here for life.

Practice makes it possible for us to be free — to rid ourselves of these obstacles and establish ourselves firmly in the present moment. Practice gives us methods we can se to help us to live fully in the present.
