  • One of the dangers of emotional life, notes The School of Life, is that we find that we don't feel 'in the moment': we're at a funeral, but we don't feel sad. We're making love, but our minds are elsewhere. It's our birthday, but we're not jolly. Why is it sometimes so hard for our true inner feelings to keep pace with events in the outer world?

  • The concept of mine is the 200-year present is a way of thinking about change. The 200-year present began 100 years ago with the year of birth of the people who have reach their hundredth birthday today. The other boundary of the 200-year present, 100 years from now, is the hundredth birthday of the babies born today.
  • Is living in the moment really the only way to find inner peace? Many believe there is only one "reality"; the moment we are in right "now", and that everything else is pure fantasy.
  • Others believe in living the hours: for example, in the Christian monastic tradition, every day follows a rhythm of eight "Hours," which mark nuances of morning, noon, night, and between times.
  • The author of the extraordinary Spell of the Sensuous explained that we have to be present, not future-oriented, before we can start to change the world.
