During this 2.5 minute audio excerpt from an hour-long radio interview, Zen Buddhist priest Rev. Taka Kawakami explains how life is in the present moment.
He says that people often get excited thinking about the future. We think that we will be superhuman tomorrow, but that we are only regular today. So we put things off. With that attitude, we let life slip past us.
