It's tough. But sometimes the "now" isn't so attractive. So it's better to live in the past or the future. Maybe that's why people do it?

I think you're probably right. There are times when we all probably need to go to our "happy place," which is usually a memory from the past, or some kind of futuretrip.

From what I can tell - living in the "now" is practically an artform. It's incredibly difficult, I think. But, there MUST be something to it...something powerful, right? I wonder what the secret is to making "now" attractive. I imagine there are tricks to that.

I haven't read it yet, but I recently bought The Power of Now. There MUST be something to it for that book to have done so well. My plan is to dig deeply into it tonight!
