Live in the Present

By | March 10, 2011

In the movie Siddhartha based on the novel by Hermann Hesse and directed by Conrad Rooks, Siddhartha is rowing in the river accompanied by his Guru who is an old man. He tells Siddhartha that the river is at all the places at the same time. It is at its sources, it is in the ocean, it is on its way to ocean simultaneously. It lives in the present. We humans suffer because we chase the time which is impossible. Time is unaffected by anything. It is nonchalant. It neither hates nor loves anything. Things are born and dying but it does not care. It always flows, unrepentant and unbridled.
