This present moment is not the past. Sometimes we feel that a present moment happening is just like something that happened to us before. We say to ourselves, "I know better this time." And we try to treat the present situation as if it were something from the past. We impose a preconceived judgment upon what is happening. But the present now moment is always fresh and new and innocent of the past. We need to be open to receive the meaning and joy that this present moment has for each of us. As no two people are alike, so no two moments in our life are alike. Let's quit trying to make the present into what has already happened. Our life is not a rehearsal; it is also not a rerun.
