A Perfect Moment

Find the 'narrow gate that leads to life.' It is called the Now. Narrow your life down to this moment. Your life situation may be full of problems—most life situations are—but find out if you have any problem at this moment. Not tomorrow or in ten minutes, but now. Do you have a problem now?

Eckhart Tolle

This evening on the way to work, I was focused on the Now. I had another perfect moment, a satori. It was Bliss, then it was just a memory. It seems that driving a car makes one stay focused in the Now since you have to pay attention to the road and other drivers. This is also why people take up dangerous sports like rock climbing and such because they have to stay focused on the Now or they will die. Think I'll stick to driving a car rather than skydiving or some such. (grin)

Stay focused on the Now or die. Makes perfect sense to me, John! Thank you for your insights.
 
Great help to me this morning John, narrowing my life down to now. Thanks.
Driving to work and back is one of my favorite times, a sort of bubble of time to think. No radio or anything. Focus must be the thing I am missing in the rest. Constant interruptions all day, walk-in clients or calls or whatever. 'let thine eye be single'is one that i think of for focus too, not as easy as it sounds.
