This has a rather Zen feel to it.

What we should do is not ‘future’ ourselves so much. We should ‘now’ ourselves more. ‘Now thyself’ is more important than ‘Know thyself.’ Reason is what tells us to ignore the present and live in the future. So all we do is make plans. We think that somewhere there are going to be greener pastures. It’s crazy. Heaven is nothing but a grand, monumental instance of the future. Listen, now is good. Now is wonderful.

Amen to that!
