Understand what “the now” means and this makes complete sense. But most definitely don’t understand what it means to live in the now moment. cause alot of us are trapped in past thought or future anticipation and these cause us to be anxious and depressed for what we refuse to change our mindsets we persist in constant folly and don’t even know it.

Ie- Why am i so broke? Im so stressed better have a cigarette… quit smoking and stop using it as an excuse to not change and you will suddenly be not so broke.. continue to make these changes to your bad habits and see your world change before your eyes.

Thich Nhat Hanh teaches these kind of things about knowing how to suffer and you will suffer less. Free yourself of material suffering and be present in the now moment understand this and you may understand it all.
