The book builds on an old view point: the past is gone, the future is coming, and all we have is now! Of course, the most important aspect of life is the current moment - it's here and now it's gone. But, shaping our future and creating our destiny, and enjoying life beyond simple pleasures is equally important It is the self-actualization of our creations, struggles, creativity, relationships, and love for all living things that brings meaning to life - not simple focus on the inner self of now. Our microscopic and macroscopic worlds are interacting but not necessary in harmony. To focus on the inner self and on now is an over simplication of the the magnificant complexity of our worlds. Personally, I have this myth that Buddish and Asian philosophy have much to offer us materialistic, capitalistic beings - but I'm sorry to say that once again the goose is without a gold egg - for now!
