Going from time towards now.

The great Zen master Rinzai in order to take his student’s attention away from time, would often raise his finger and slowly ask: “What, at this moment, is lacking?” A powerful question that does not require an answer on the level of the mind. It is designed to take your attention deeply into the Now.
