Its all mind game. Mind never tries to keep us happy in present moment. It always keep on saying that I will be happy when I go THERE, I will be happy at LATER point of time not now, I can be happy only at THAT place. And thus we keep on waiting for THAT thing to be with us, to be at place located THERE, for moment which is going to come LATER. Day and night we keep on denying present. Even if time, place and moment for which you are waiting since life time comes, mind says "No no. This is not what I want. Do not be happy now. Here it is very dirty".  Have you ever experienced one thing, when you do your best or say when you are completely involved in some work you will be utterly happy. Even if situation does not go the way you want it to go, you will be happy. Why? Because all miseries lies in not being with present. In present everything all miseries goes away. Misery is in future and past only. Present is always good. Happy.  Full of joy. And so my current personnel goal is to be in present. Be in present. Be NOW. Be HERE. Be at THIS place.


  1. interesting post.."Because all miseries lies in not being with present." well said...but its at times difficult to keep pace with the present cos we are emotional beings.. and wud try to live in past and future often...

  2. The ultimate truth! that made a nice read.

  3. Yup. Its a bitter truth. :)
    Living in present brings a happiness,smile and joy around you.
    But as u hv specified in the beginning of a post, We are so stupid that our mind never appreciates the present and tries to run in the past or future,which results in the unfulfilled involvement in the present moment...

    It might be possible that sometime later u recognize the value of that present moment which u have lost and then u start repenting, but what is the meaning now? coz you have already lost that moment,that moment is past for you now and you are wandering in past again.. I mean you are doing the same mistake again.. :P

    uff...too complicated this life is!!!.. :P
