Intermission from the movie in our minds called past and future

The quiet, empty space of meditation reveals the mind’s addiction to imagining the future and reminiscing about the past.

It helps us understand how dwelling in a time other than the present starts to churn the ego: anxieties arise, desires become distractions, and to do things well is nearly impossible.

But when there is no idea of time, there are no expectations, and desires do not become a problem.

– Les Kaye
