Let me tell you a secret, something they don't teach you in your temple. The Gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be more lovely than you are now. We will never be here again.
Achilles - Troy
60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
That's a lot of seconds in a lot of minutes in a lot of hours in a lot of days in a lot of weeks in a lot of years.
That's a lot.
So there's a lot of time. Right?
In reality, we only live in one moment. In the now.
Not in yesterday, not in tomorrow.
And yet many waits for tomorrow.
Waiting for a day that will never come.
That day will never come because it does not exist.
And not only us. But everyone else. And everything else. Everything that exists only does so in the moment that is now.
Right now. In this moment that you are reading these words.
This second is all that matters. Nothing more, nothing less.
