Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
The sky is not untouched by the rain. The bottom part gets soaked routinely.
Reminds me of a joke my biker friend told me. Said he ran into one of his old lady's ex-boyfriends who asked him how he liked her since he had worn her out. He said she was great, except for the first inch or two.
