Everything is perfect. I am piloting a small bushplane over the worlds second largest wildebeest migration. The sun rises in the distance. The sight is truly magnificent. And I even get paid to do this!
It is in all ways a dream that has come true.
The funny thing is that my mind is not entirely here. In my mind I am thinking of where I will fly next. Canada? Namibia? Indonesia?
Then I realise the beauty that is present right here right now.
It is like I am eating the most delicious hamburger in the world while dreaming of what pizza I am going to eat tomorrow.
This is the nature of our mind, it tends to wander of into the future and the past, taking us away from the only moment that life can be enjoyed: right now.
Be aware, that is all you can do.
