time for what is important


Time is very precious:

every minute, every hour counts.

We don’t want to throw time away. We want

to make good use of the minutes and hours we have left.

When we focus our attention in the here and now and live

simply, we have more time to do the things we think

are important. We don’t waste our energy in

thinking, in worrying, in running

after fame, power,

and wealth.
