The time is now....

It is 9:58 and it is now. Tomororw at 3:00 it will be now. On my deathbed it will still be now. Since it will always be now, learning to respond to now is the only thing there is to learn.

it is stating the obvious in a glorified way..

you can only react to the present, not to the past or to the future..meaning you can only act for the future not react for it..

React to the future?

Based on the past and the present, you plan for the future.

No one can react to the future, only plan for it based on one's reactions in the past and the present.
