Hope, and being in the Here and Now...

I am often thinking about the word "hope" and all it's relatives, like missing, longing for, that all have to do with the desire to know what tomorrow will bring, or even the next hours. The need for avoiding the unknown, but the unknown is there in any case and noone can do very much about it. I try to stay as much as possible in the very Here and Now, but not forgetting the past. (That is where I have all my experiences). It is only in the very Now where things can happen, that might help the "later" to turn into what i want it to be. 
Thinking about that today when out walking in the very heavy winds and looking at the faint green colors showing up on stage, the hope for more light and warmer days, new meetings, past things to be renewed. 
When I stay in the Now, I can watch the "figure" showing itself, meaning the focus of what is happening around me, with my own eyes, seeing the green getting greener, like a constant voyage into what is approaching me....

  1. Hi Torsten, wonderful words, wonderful thoughts.
    I'm into something similar, maybe not that advanced, but I must admit that last year I had some beautiful and profound insights for the meaning of living Here and Now. Not mere words anymore. And as a consequence got closer to nature, although I've always apreciated the beauty of transformation that is a characteristic of the European weather and vegetation. Different from the one I was grown with. There's almost never such dryness and browness around.
