The present is a balance beam. All efforts should be aimed at remaining in balance and present, but constantly there is the pull and strain of the past and future. The allurements that these two possess are only shadows and deceptions of control. They whisper and lie, breading discontent and offering a pseudo control that will always elude. The past teasingly encourages you to dwell and linger on what now cannot be changed, and the future temptingly draws you to what can only be imagined and created, for it has yet to be. There will always be this battle for balance and the fight to remain present, and this battle must continually be fought-for presence is crucial to sanity and to wholeness of life...in my humble opinion.
