Living in the moment

As Jason Mraz is singing
Living in the moment
Brings peace and joy
In the moment, just right now

Why to worry if we can just be
And enjoy the flow of life
Which is being brought to us
In each single moment

Our mind is wandering
The past and the future
And is missing the present

Our mind is worrying, projecting,
Analysing, planning, taking us away
From being present in the moment
Constantly searching
For reasons to distract
Ourselves from the reality
Of the uniqueness
Of the present moment

Why? Why not?
Why this? Why not that?
What if? What if not?
What should? What shouldn’t?

And why not
Exactly as it is,
As it is right now,
Exactly as it is?
