Moving from The Faster/Cheaper to The Slower/Better — Understanding “Now”   Leave a comment

In July of 2011, I shared two things written in 2000 (Pre-blog) on “The Now.” This morning I thought it was time to share again. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

I’m now in the process of doing some reading on the Clock of the Long Now, which I will do a posting soon. However, before doing so, I would like to share again a poem my poem titled, The Now, and The How of Now, which is my take on living the now — Lessons for The Now.

We live in a world in which our thinking is “here and now,” focusing on how to make things faster and cheaper. The now needs to involve long-term thinking, focusing on slower and better.

The Now

(In the Zen of the now,
past and future exist as one.)

Living for the moment
Creates a false state of being,
Of setting you free. 

Forget the moment, live for the now.

Being in the moment is to
Have a beginning and an end,
Boundaries where you cannot be free.
