Chapter: Hope as an Obstacle

Hope can help you make the present moment less difficult to bear. However, this is all hope can do for you. Clinging to hope for the future will keep you from living mindfully in the present; when you refrain from hope, you allow yourself to discover the joy in the present. Remember, hope is simply not enough to help you reach happiness, as your happiness is already here in the present moment—you just have to allow yourself to discover it.
