Well, yes there is only now to be experienced directly. However, if we are lucky enough to have a future then there is the possibility to experience awakening /enlightenment (whatever they mean to people) then. I feel we follow the dharma path as best we can as lay Buddhists into the future without striving for any goal – the means are good enough.
