The mind fragments the now and is good at it. Packaging concepts into labels. Understanding stories and fables. But the one sure way to beat the mind at its own game, is to label things under two main categories: Now, Not-Now
And once you have identified a Not-Now, grab the lesson and run back into the Now. You are already here.. but letting go of the Not-Now is the equivalent of running back to the present.
Here’s example of how this works: In our conversations we have started to say “New Moment” as a way to practice shifting to the Now when a conversation thread is no longer relevant or useful.
