i believe, up to an extent, that i will have Alzheimer's in the future. It may sound sad but i don't think it is. Looking at the pros, forgetting bad memories, traumatic episodes, inconsolable emotional phases, fatal thoughts, and journeys through dark tunnels actually weigh more to their side. Would i want to be cured? May be not. Because recently, i have learned that i must live in the present, not the past not the future but in the present. It's actually an art to exercise and much more helpful if you want to make it to the other side of the river with all limbs and muscles intact in their respective places.
Once again, i enjoyed quoting it a few days ago and posted it up on my Instagram and Twitter:
It's currently my desktop wallpaper.
Past is a country where no one should live, it's the thought i read in Suhel Seth's book. As easily, it's one of his thoughts. i found it helpful to use his thoughts to extend my expression in a way that makes more sense. Future is a dream that no one should see, this thought is mine however and the rest after that. Cool to know the history behind a working mind, isn't it?
And if i talk about today and not yesterday and not tomorrow, it's a shady weather. Literally. i guess the city is soaked in the haze of dust storm. Drizzling was there in the morning. i don't know whether it's completely normal for the clouds to start Spitting Competition this early in the year because i am a new born native to Kuwait, hauled here only three months ago. i can also go look up the weather reports and check on the stacks of articles loaded on the internet but it's better to live the sight than to rush authenticating its appearance.
Present. When was the last time you lived in it? Because from my recent experiences, i know we are either burying ourselves in the past till the point we start choking or rushing in making castles of successes in the future till all the imaginary turns absurd and we swirl back to the present only to repeat and reorganize the same process all over again again. Now, i will give you a minute. Think! When was the last time you were actually there in the present?
