There is a story about Zen which tells of a man walking on a horse track that was galloping. Another man on the side of the road shouted at the first man: "Where are you going?" "I don't know," replied the rider, "asked the horse."

I've been reading lately about paying attention, stopping and paying attention in the here and now. While pausing, we stop thinking and forget about the strong emotions that dominate us.
When we breathe carefully, eat, walk, load the dishwasher, drive a car, shop for groceries, etc., we deeply touch the present and appreciate the well-being that is already present in our daily lives.
When I do one of these activities, I usually think about something that happened in the past or that I plan for the future, certainly not what I do or where I am most of the time.
