     Thank you Alan for a wonderful statement.  thank you Somik for sending it. I find it very difficult to stay in the present.  I find myself staying in the present for relatively few seconds.  After attempting to stay in the present for more than 20 years, I am still barely able to be in the present.  I strongly believe that nothing ever happened in the past and nothing ever will happen in the future.  Only in the present can something happen.  I love the present orientation of Zen practice and gestalt psychotherapy but my love appears to be more intellectual than deeply felt or I would probably stay in the present longer than I now do.  Alan's article has reminded me of something very, very, very important.  As I mentioned before, when I could not stay in the present I must also learn to forgive myself again, and again, and again.  Warm and kind regards to everyone.
