Searching the Kindle version of the book, I see the phrase "current actions" used (as I understand the text) to refer to the group of Next Actions currently defined in your system.

“Current actions” is used 6 times as a synonym for next actions. The phrase “next action” occurs several times in every chapter. It seems clear David Allen was simply trying to vary the phrasing.

@mcogilvie I think @DavidAllen uses the word "current" to mean "existing now", "present on the GTD lists". So there are "current actions" on the Ground level (ie. Next Actions present on the @context lists) and "current projects" on the Horizon 1 level (ie. active Projects on the Projects lists).
