It's been repeated over and over and over again... and yet we (including this one) just don't get it. We may get it intellectually, but not emotionally. Our brain knows, but our heart doesn't. The truth is there, but we don't apply it. We see the finger, but don't look to the moon it is pointing to. Human beings are learners and planners. Nothing wrong with that. Rational, enlightened self-interest keeps us alive. But the constant focus on who we have been, what we have done, who we want to be, and what we want to do is killing us.
