Going through life, it is necessary to pay attention to what goes on around you. However, it is similar if not more important to also focus on what is going on inside of you. The mind is a necessary tool to survive in life, analyzing the world and helping to solve problems. However, you must also accept that whatever problems you have do not exist in the Now. This is why it is crucial that you are able to focus attention within yourself. After all, it is within yourself, within the Now, that you are truly present and truly happy. Being yourself allows you to be at home, but making visits to the external world, where time rules and the problems come with it, is also necessary to keep your body going. However, remember that the mind is not you, and you are not defined by your external life situation.
