In the book “Flow”, the author said that the human race was conditioned to reach the pleasure instead of pain. But often, people keep waiting for it after pain, like the promise very often heard from parents to child: Try to work hard now for a better future. We can find this item in many daily situations around. The majority hope always a better result in the future. The author said it seems like these people wait to live instead of living their life… daily.
The idea is here and now. That means we enjoy the process. We live the present and at the place we are. As long time as we can remember, people preferred life in hope, prefer waiting in sufferance that promise an eventual happiness.
