Food for Thought (rambling)

The past is depression arising in the present
The future is anxiety arising in the present
If you were both anxious and depressed at the same time would you not be present?
What does it mean to live for right now?
Even a sliver of a sliver of a second happened that long ago.
Our senses only cover such a little amount of what is and what could be.
If we cut the amount we perceive in half and had lived that way from birth to death would it be any less real than the full human perspective that we are given?
We live in a paradox that not even the smartest person to ever live could find the answer to.
Life and death has no answers because answers are only an illusion of our perception.
If a light flickered fast enough that your eyes couldn’t catch it would that mean it is not real to you?
It is the idea of searching and attachment to that search that leaves us even more in the dark than we were before.
The answer is there is no answer.
I found that only through meditation can you find what your brain associates as the answer.
And that is being empty but also full at the same time.
To tune into the life force that nature gives.
Like a tree grows, it does not think about it.
A tree is never depressed or anxious.
It only is.
I find human mannerisms are lacking in the fact that we think we can solve problems cutting ourself off from nature.
When in the end nature and the natural vibrations that our human psyche is born into is the only way of freedom.
We are cultured, but culture is not your friend.

In feeling gratitude for being in the present, one will reminisce about the past and fantasize about the future. To be truly present is being detached. Detached in a way that forges thought as a steady stream. An opposing current creates waves, a complementing current creates a rapid.
