I came across this passage today and it reminded me of how ‘lost’ we can become. Lost obsessing about yesterday or tomorrow and not living in the present moment.
I thought it was worth sharing with you all:
“A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity.
When for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. It’s as though it had all just come into existence.
I can never make these moments last.
I cling to them, but like everything, they fade.
I have lived my life on these moments.
They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be”
Christopher Isherwood (A Single Man)
