The Paradoxes of Our Lives - When We Worry In the Now, We Are Not In the Now

Worrying in the now, is not being in the now. To be in the now, one must be in the present moment, not in the future.

To stop oneself from doing something now because of the fear of something in the future (like not being able to pay bills, some similar consequence etc) is not living the now. However much it may appear practical, it takes away from the experience of the now, and from its possibilities and experience. Mostly it takes away enthusiasm and the joy for life.

To be in the now is to be there. Not worry about it.
