Richard Rohr: "If you watch your mind, you will see you live most of your life in the past or in the future. The present always seems boring and not enough. So, to get yourself engaged you will often 'create a problem' to resolve, and then another, and another. The only way many people know how to motivate themselves is to create problems or to need to 'fix' something.
If you can't be positively present right now, without creating a problem, nothing new is ever going to happen to you. You will only experience what you already agree with and what does not threaten you—and you will never experience the unexpected depth and contentment that is always being offered to you . . . No problem to solve; just an immediate intimacy to enjoy"
