Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone.
Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see.
We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking
and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice.
Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t.
Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t.
And that’s the point.
Just walk, see, sit down if you like.
Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have,
and realise that that is enough to be happy.
There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window.
You’d be a fool to miss it.
We received so many signposts throughout our common human history, to point us in the direction of the present moment, but what is it?
"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.", says Buddha
"Confine yourself to the present.", advises Marcus Aurelius
“The past is a fog on our minds. The future? A complete dream. We can’t neither guess the future, neither change the past.” Shams Tabrizi
"Rejoice in the things that are present; all else is beyond thee." Michel de Montaigne
"Remember then: there is only one time that is important--Now! It is the most important time because it is the only time when we have any power." Leo Tolstoy,
"You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, there is no other life but this." Henry David Thoreau
"Today. It's all there is. The eternal present is the space within which your whole life unfolds, the one factor that remains constant." Eckhart Tolle
A few questions come to mind:
Am I present?
If not, what is interfering?
Why do I find it so challenging to be here, now?
Am I missing anything?
How do I uncover what is needed?
Can the present moment be defined?
Can it be experienced?
We find these questions so fundamental to our happiness and to living a full existence that we decided to go on an adventure to try getting closer to the truth together.

Forever is composed of nows.
The first thing you discover is
a kind of emptiness,
a presence which doesn't seem to have content to it,
like looking up
at a limitless sky.
That boundary-less place
is your own consciousness,
When you relax into it,
you realize that it's also full -
it is everything.
You realize this presence is
what you really are: Love.
