      1. Yes, awareness itself can only ever be ‘in the moment'(assuming we must have some temporal reference), but the idea of us being ‘out of the moment’ is pure nonsense – what on earth can we ‘be’ outside of the moment?

      2. Yes I have often felt a certain discomfort that being “in the moment” is really a descriptor of time, but that true presence is the transcendence of the illusion of time. Being in the Here and Now is not an action to be completed, but a realization that you are already.
