In magicand in lifethere is only the present moment, the now. You cant measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. Time doesnt pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; were always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didnt act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what were going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we dont want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.
