A state of existence, here in this moment of time, captured only once, right now.
A mindful state of appreciation that time is neither past or future. Time is current.
A penetrating consciousness that what is before us this second will not be here the next.
An acute awareness that beauty, sorrow, dread, dreams, love and life are lost in an instant.
A prompt recognition that at once we will be no more.
An immediate insight of the frailty of our survival.
