I experienced this issue only this morning in the shower. I had had a poor night's sleep and was worrying about health issues. I caught myself at it, and thought 'be in the present'. I tried to concentrate on the lovely warm water loosening up my stiff muscles, and through some masochistic combination of free association ended up imagining my own death, wondering how much pain you actually experience in a freefall onto pavement. What the heck is it with us that we are so eager to exchange a pleasant present for a fearful future?
May you experience a true 'Christmas Present' this season.
