This is something that I struggle with. This is so beautifully written that I had to share it.

Yes, that is something I struggle with as well. Somewhere recently I ran across a statement that I've thought a lot about—that neither the past nor the future exist—only the present exists. So when we react to the past (with regret) or the future (with fear), we're reacting to something that isn't there—except in our minds. That made a lot of sense to me, and I think that's exactly the "shadow" that he's talking about here. I made a screenshot of this one to keep. ;)

Yes, I've heard that statement that only the present exists. I like that thought, and need to remind myself that more often.
