Hardest thing in Life

People often compare their difficulties, feeling more or less privileged than the next and using that perception as benchmarking or a standard of classification. We're missing the point.

Einstein, Tesla, Newton and just about every other historically renowned "mind" has said that the greatest illusion is separation.

The truth is that we all live the hardest thing together; the present moment. We may have our own scarring memories, repressed emotions and skeletons in the closet, but the fact is, the present moment is the only truth and the same thing we all concurrently live. We are all bound by this constant present moment, that is never the same yet never changes.

Time is a concept, a common means of organization and observation of the elusive and ever-changing present moment. A clock is a measure of itself, not of the pace of the present moment. Time is not a truth. The present moment is truth. The hardest thing I've ever done was live in the present moment. Sure, I remember the things I'd rather not, and I remember the awesomeness of the past, but it's just that; the past.
