If meditation is all about being in the here and now, then premeditation must be something to do with being in the now before we get there, which is nuts. But isn’t that what we try to do? Isn’t that what planning is? Once you realize this, the advantages of being in the here and now start to become apparent. If I can learn to respond to real situations rather than future uncertainties, isn’t that a better use of my time? Isn’t that more empowering? Isn’t it just a whole lot more sane?
