Time present…

Do not pursue the past
Do not idly hold out hopes for the future

The past is already discarded
And the future has not yet arrived

Throroughly discern the nature of the present
In the midst of reality, one who,
without swaying or moving, clearly grasps the present,
deepens his state of life

Simply set your heart on doing what must be done
Today

Bhaddekaratta Sutra

Broadcast on Radio 4 – Sun 01 Apr 2007.
