Here, Now, With our Body

“In our mind’s eye problems should resolve quickly, while in actuality they can work themselves out very gradually.  Though our physical behavior moves sequentially with the clock, thought does not.  Thoughts skip around in ways that make us feel like we can jump in and out of the present moment, and act in the past and future. Meanwhile, the closest any of us can get to witnessing the evolution of a situation is to look down right now to see what our body is doing in real time.  Despite our restlessness, we must always be here, now, with our body.”
