Trust the process. Trust evolution.
We've always been evolving. Life is motion, evolution, emotion. Seeing the future while becoming it. Noticing that the past creates a foundation for the next stage. Trying to build on thin air by "staying present" pisses me off. It just doesn't work. The "now" is not all that exists - at least how most spiritual people fragmentedly assume it works.
The now is useful. So is the past. So is the future.
People are obsessed with saying "this is it." Where does this obsession come from? From what lack or pain or uneasiness does it originate?
Spirituality isn't the end. It's just the beginning. Welcome to the starting line.
