Living Now

Many people appear to be living mostly in the past or mostly in the future. People often look back longingly to good that no longer seems present or ruminate regretfully about past mistakes and missed opportunities. The future is frequently thought of either as rose-colored or as uncertain and fearful.

Those who do live more in the present may look upon it as a temporary experience—if unpleasant, to be grimly endured; if pleasant, to be enjoyed while it lasts.

Christian Science helps us think rightly about the past, the present, and the future. It teaches us how to learn needed lessons from our past experiences and to profit thereby. And it shows us how to plan intelligently for the future under God's direction. But most of all it instructs us in the way to live abundantly and happily right now.
