It is our Hyper-modern modus operandi to rush forward at breakneck speed. It seems though that we are only rushing forward from a moment to a moment. Seems to me that if we had knowledge of more than the last moment, and concern for more than the next moment, perhaps we’d slow down a few knots and actually experience the present moment with a bit more intentionality.
To seize the moment doesn’t mean to seize this moment, but rather to seize the next, and of course, you’ve got to be first there to claim it as your own. So we press on, ever faster, ever greedier, without the slightest care about what lies ahead.

I truly believe that when we get there before we’re supposed to, it is not the same as it would have been had we arrived on time.
