Live for the moment or seize the day and then get what you can out of it now,
You can take that approach……But
if there’s something higher while you’re busy seizing the temporary thing, you’re losing the better thing.
The person who gives up the eternal for the temporary, loses both! He loses the eternal because he gave it up, and he loses the temporary, because it’s temporary! And the person who gives up the temporary for the eternal does not lose anything! Because the temporary he gave up he’s going to lose anyway and the eternal’s permanent!
(Jayadvaita Swami 10/2007)
