    We can learn from the past and have plans for the future, but living is present. Being in the present, and learning in and from the present, helps me know more about the present, not about the past, and opens me to want to learn more in and of the present. Higher ground is the present -- it's what's happening, it's alive, and by attending to it and digging deep into it I discover clues and facts about it, and am alive here and now. Being present and attending to the present foster my curiosity and desire for more in the present. Knowing that the past and future are imagination, knowing that the past is memory and the future is anticipation, and knowing that it is only the present that is, fosters my curiosity to learn more and more in and of the present.
