Delay

An important note about living in the NOW.

The NOW is not about instant gratification.

The NOW is about cultivating awareness.

To gratify instantly is to fall victim to an endless cycle of insatiability.

To delay gratification is to concentrate and to distill any given experience.

We satisfy human urges in a flurry of emotion and energy, casting consequence to the wind and chalking up the behavior to “Living in the moment”.

In reality though, by doing this we set ourselves up to seek that hit again.

And again.

And again.

Until we are drained and depleted and overweight and emotionally taxed.

Right NOW is when we have the power to make really great decisions.

Decisions which will groom the course for each successive NOW.
