Most of us spend 59 minutes in an hour living in the past with regret for lost joys, or shame for things badly done...or in a future which we either long for or dread. Do we often travel through life accompanied by the ghosts of our past, present, and future? Instead of focusing on the events in our present journey, we may find ourselves diverted by thoughts of what once was, what we haven't done, and what we may never do. As long as we travel this way, we will miss a good part of each minute. We will not learn to use our present time to its utmost: to experience, listen, feel, learn, plan, and grow.
The ghosts of the past, present, and future are crutches we lean on when we're too weak to use our own resources. We can be strong if we learn to rely on ourselves, God, and our companions in life. How can I live in each minute without the thoughts of the past or future?
