How to understand the "NOW". Look at how everything that exists, and how it has an opposite to it. Even "existence" itself has an opposite, nothingness. But for something to be nothing, it has to be something. A basic principle of Mindfulness is recognizing that "everything" and "nothing" are two sides of the same coin, you cant have one without the other, so never forget about the coin itself! Don't focus on which side you notice; recognize you are the one holding the coin.
Alan Watts is usually misunderstood in the idea that from life to death is that nothingness is the end result of dying. Yet, I notice the exact opposite is being stated; listen and you too may hear the sound of echos of an empty hallway, where doors lead to other rooms, and places, behind the empty hall of "nothinginess" is a room that contains, EVERYTHING! Guess what? Just by reading this, is your evidence that it is there (here), and you are here as well; you are part of it; & always will be.
Emotional maturity and how to handle the so called "tragedies" in our lives, can sometimes get people to feel victimized or powerless, especially when something is outside of one's control, yet that is the best time to recognize your power comes not from control or what you have, but from accepting things are mostly outside your control, accepting this fact is empowering, not weakness, but wholeness and abundance. You just have to let it be, you just have to accept it.
What reality do you accept?

The most harmful thinking error is that we think life is a race we need to "win" but feeling that we are being chased down mostly by a self-denying knowledge that our race ends in bitter death; If we can stop seeing life as a race to the finish, stop thinking we must, be rich financially, or find happiness (as if you didn't already have it), and instead just stop and accept the truth: that nothing is all we have to lose, or can ever lose. That means we already have everything by simply existing.
