Do you ever wonder why we waste our lives in the ‘when’ and ‘then’ versus the ‘here’ and ‘now’?
The simple answer is we have yet to distinguish the massive difference between ‘reality’ and ‘non-reality.’ Our subconscious mind can only provide us with a ‘feeling’ of peace when our ‘awareness’ is bestowed upon the true nature of ‘reality.’
However, if we take the time to become aware of our own awareness we will detect that we are way too busy to be bothered with the presence of reality. Considering we are too pre-occupied living within a world of ‘non-reality’ by way of being eagerly employed by our past failures and future fears!
Thus, we are in turn desperately trying to cope with the enormous amount of anxiety and stress that is constantly occupying our awareness, through the ‘dedicated attention’ that we grant to ‘unrealistic’ time—otherwise known as the past and the future.
