The present moment

There is one thing more desolate than hopelessness. It’s the absence of expectations.

Hope only hurts when we still expect things to turn out differently, or still want it to be more.

When we give up hope, and we surrender our expectations, we’re left with nothing but the present moment.

The past fades as a hallucination often does.

The future ceases to exist.

And all we have is a choice to do something with the moment we’re in.

But what is there to do with it if hope and expectations have both left?

With no bitterness to create anger, and no love to create hope, what value does the present moment hold?

I believe that it is in such moments that we face the brutality or the beauty of our true nature.
