We hear a lot about living in the present moment and "be[ing] here now," yet surely the past and the future are where it's all at, so to speak. Just before he is defeated and explodes, the monster in Juken Sentai Gekiranger
(獣拳戦隊ゲキレンジャー) proclaims that "In the past and the future, I will be on top!" It's difficult to despair in the midst of one's current problems when one stays focused on past and future glories. Enough with today, already, and three cheers for yesterday and tomorrow!
