What does it mean to be present? One dictionary defines the adjective to be present as: being or existing now. Are we truly present, that is, being or existing NOW?
Do we spend much of our time ruminating about the past or fantasizing or worrying about the future? Maybe we are wishing we had won or we hoping we will win?
Meanwhile, the present moments of our life NOW, the rich textures of sight, sound, tastes, and smells are happening stage left. Think about a favorite memory, chances are you can recall minute details of that time. You can recall the rich texture of that moment because you were truly present in the NOW. If you think about it, we live our life in units of NOW. To miss the NOW is to miss one's life. With meditation, we can learn to turn down the volume on the past and future. We can learn to savor our life, unit by unit, moment by moment. Like the old saying, we can learn to be here NOW.
I am pretty sure the intention of meditation doesn't involve "winning," per se, but I would agree an intention of meditation would be to benefit yourself and therefore, others. Maybe that is a win-win now that I think about it.
