I admire my dog. He has many fine qualities, not the least of which is his ability to live entirely in the moment. Faster than you can click your fingers he will go from being deeply asleep to bouncing off the walls when you mention the word 'walkies'. He always exhibits total absorption in the here and now, whatever may be happening. All dogs do this naturally, indeed so do all animals, with one exception. Yes, us, of course.
I want to be more like my dog, but it takes a a lot of practice.
