We’ve heard that everything we need is in the present moment—yet as Scottish-born teacher Bodhipaksa says, the fact is that the present moment often feels unsatisfactory and incomplete, prompting us to look to the past and the future for completion. Why is that, and can we change our experience of presence? In this selection from the audio program The Wisdom of the Breath, chosen by Sounds True producer Mitchell Clute, Bodhipaksa applies his personal insight, contemporary science, and a grounded understanding of Buddhism to this question—revealing a deeper understanding of what it takes to fully savor the present moment in all its beauty, with complete acceptance.
