The key is to learn how to live present, but the mind can't do that. The mind hates the present. The mind can only do two things: worry about the future and reprocess the past. It does not know how to be present. Present always feels boring, empty, not enough. So we run into the future and drag along the past instead.
Once you get that insight that presence, pure presence, doesn't come easily to people, you have to learn how to do it. And you've got to take off your Problem-Solving hat. If you're solving problems, you're into the future, in pure presence there's no problem to solve. It just: it is what it is, what it is, what it is, yeah!
