“Only a man who lives not in time but in the present is happy. For life in the present there is no death. Death is not an event in life. It is not a fact of the world. If by eternity is understood not infinite temporal duration but non-temporality, then it can be said that a man lives eternally if he lives in the present.”
My friend Jake said it best “I want to live until I die.” If you only live in the present you are basically immortal and you can continually improve your present with a lot of hard work. Just don’t forget to take your dogs for a walk.
