I like to partake in thinking about past and future, and also being in the moment. I just don't do them at the same time.

Some people have come to believe that living in the present moment is a failure to learn from past, prepare for future, or is to drift through life care-free. This is an incorrect understanding of this concept.
Have you ever been exposed to advanced mathematics, advanced physics, or advanced chemistry? If you have, envision one of the most complicated formulas or calculations that you can. As you work the problem step-by-step.... you must focus on the exact step you are on (Now), keep in consideration the progress thus far (Past), and consider the end result of the calculation (Future). Get stuck on Past or Future of the calculation and you will never achieve the goal, you must work 'now' step-by-step.

Some people want us to live in the past, like the media with wanting us to live in the emotion of 9/11.
Live in the moment and like there is no tomorrow is a liberal destructive mindset developed out of Hollywood. Life has responsibilities and decisions that do not always = lets just have fun screw it. Its basically the rich telling you to enjoy being a slave and never have wealth because well the longer you listen to our message of "just get messed up and party" the less you are out there getting a real education and making something of yourself. Building an empire...thats living..Getting drunk in a bar wasting $ = decisions slaves make.
