The Paradox of Presence: Why Do We Resist Living In The Now?

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, we often find ourselves constantly planning for the future or ruminating over the past. But what about the present moment, the here and now? Despite its importance, many of us resist living in the now. But why is that?

The Illusion of Control

One of the main reasons we resist the present moment is the illusion of control. We believe that by constantly planning and worrying about the future, we can control it. However, this is merely an illusion. The future remains uncertain no matter how much we plan. By focusing on the future, we miss out on the beauty and opportunities present in the now.

Fear of Uncertainty

Another reason is our fear of uncertainty. The present moment is unpredictable and full of unknowns. This can be scary, and as a result, we may find ourselves retreating to the past or future where things feel more certain and familiar.

The Influence of Society

Society also plays a significant role in our resistance to the present moment. We live in a world that values productivity and progress. We’re taught from a young age to always be doing something, to always be moving forward. This societal pressure can make it difficult for us to slow down and appreciate the present moment.

The Habit of Distraction

Finally, we’ve become accustomed to constant distraction. With technology at our fingertips, we’re always connected, always stimulated. This constant state of distraction pulls us away from the present moment and into the digital world.


Living in the now is a practice, a conscious choice that we have to make every day. It involves letting go of our need for control, embracing uncertainty, resisting societal pressures, and minimizing distractions. It’s not always easy, but the rewards are immense.

When we live in the now, we open ourselves up to experience life more fully, more authentically. So, let’s strive to live in the now, for the now is all we truly have.
