The present

January 28, 2014

Once in an interview Dalai Lama was asked when he had been the happiest. He thought for a moment, smiled and answered: ‘Right now’.

‘What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.’
T.S. Eliot – Burnt Norton

A brilliant poem on timelessness and eternity and how the present, not the future or past, really matters to individuals.
