  the present moment is where you are-always.

  Without question, many of us have mastered the neurotic art of spending much of our lives worrying about a variety of things-all at once.

  毫无疑问,我们之中许多人都十分精通神经质艺术,浪费生命去忧虑各种事情。

  We allow past problems and future concerns to dominate our present moments,

  我们让过去的问题和未来的忧虑主宰目前的时光。

  so much so that we end up anxious, frustrated,

  On the flip side, we also postpone our gratification,

  另一方面,我们延迟自己的满足感,

  our stated priorities, and our happiness,

  often convincing ourselves that someday will be better than today.

  去说服自己总有一天会比今天更好。

  Unfortunately, the same mental dynamics that tell us to look toward the future will only repeat themselves so that someday never actually arrives.

  不幸的是,我们期待未来的心理机制只会一再重复,结果总有一天从未真正到来。

  John Lennon once said, Life is what’s happening while we’re busy making other plans.

  Many people live as if life were a dress rehearsal for some later date.

  许多人把生命当做对以后某个日期的彩排生活。

  It isn’t.

  人生不是这样的。

  In fact, no one has a guarantee that he or she will be here tomorrow.

  其实,没有人可以保证,明天他或她还会在这里。

  Now is the only time we have,

  现在是我们拥有的惟一时刻,

  and the only time that we have any control over.

  也是我们能控制的惟一时光。

  When our attention is in the present moment,

  当我们把注意力放在当下时,

  we push fear from our minds.

  就能把恐惧从心底排出。

  Fear is the concern over events that might happen in the future-we won’ t have enough money,

  恐惧是忧虑未来可能发生的种种情况。例如,我们不会有足够的金钱,

  our children will get into trouble,

  我们的孩子会惹麻烦,

  we will get old and die, whatever.

  我们会老会死等等。

  To combat fear, the best strategy is to learn to bring your attention back to the present.

  Mark Twain said,I have been through some terrible things in my life,some of which actually happened.
