What would Buddha say?

Standard

Yesterday I was reminded of the scene from the movie The Godfather when Al Pacino says “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”

I gave my resignation at work and I knew that no one was going to be very happy about that. What I didn’t expect was shock and (no, not awe) meetings. In the meetings all of my concerns were addressed and immediate plans were made to correct some of the problems. So I caved and agreed to think about my decision.

So, here I am again wondering how to stay in the present moment while making a decision that so affects my future and where I must consider the past. What would Buddha say about that?

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
