The real-ness of right now

Since everything that happens has numberless causes, it is fruitless to ask “Why did this happen.” (Of course, historians and coroners have their place.) The most legitimate, energizing and necessary question is, “Am I aligned or out of synch with what happens?” This is a “now” question.

Now questions make me responsible (response-able) for what happens now. Only the now is real. The past and the future? Not real.

Nothing makes men more immediately foolish than resistance.
