Take care of the moment. Everything turns on how well we take care of the moment. We throw moments away by the bushels, by the metric tons, by the sanitary landfills. We treat moments as though they are in our way keeping us from where we want to be and what we want to be doing. We drink whiskey and do drugs to compensate ourselves for having to deal with all these damn moments of nothing endlessly stretching out the distance between the times of our glory and our bliss. The high times are our way of compensating ourselves for missing the point of our life. We want our life to be bigger, better, finer than a life can be. A life that is alive to the moment of its living is as alive as it ever gets. A cat with a ball of twine. A baby with a spoon and a pie pan. Are doing moments the way moments are to be done. It is called taking care of the moment. Doing what the moment is calling for. Extending the moment, making it last. Jazz does that. And dawdling around with a sunset, or a thunder storm. How long since you dawdled around with anything? Lingered with the moment as though it is sufficient for your needs? Why do we need more than the moment has to offer? From whence cometh our emptiness? Our hunger? Thirst? Our desperate query, "Is this all there is?"? Hold on to your moments. Relish them. Savor them. Do not let them go until they have graced you with their gifts and the abundance of their stores. And revealed to you the wonder of a life lived fully one moment at a time.
Look until you see what's what. Listen until you hear what is called for. In each situation as it arises. Moment-by-moment. Day-by-day. Do what needs to be done. As best you can. With the gifts, genius, daemon, virtues, character that came with you from the womb and constitute your Original Nature-- "The Face That Was Yours Before You Were Born"-- that you are here to incarnate, express, exhibit, bring forth and serve with liege loyalty and filial devotion all your life long. And let everything fall into place around that. Flowing into the next situation in the next moment in which you will do the same things throughout the time left for living. That's all there is to it.
