Time is an infinity of now and every moment is an eternity of creations. Life and time are not easy to explain, they are only relative terms. If one fears the future, what's the point of being alive now? If one looks forward to being happy for an eternity, they are missing this moment and praying for one that does not exist. Right now is all there is, why waste it on people and religions that keep me living in the past?
Today is the Tomorrow which you worried about Yesterday, but, dam it! you're still here, Now!
Funny isn't it, that so much attention is given to waiting for eternity to come, sometime in the future?
How much time and energy, money too, is spent on funerals. The postmortem. The undertakers. The Hearse. The Death Notices. The Flowers. Everything presuming that the Deceased cares, when it's really for those remaining, Now. Concentrating on, and refusing to let go of the Past and missing out on the beauty of Now which is so fleeting.
One cannot explain something for which there are no explanations possible with a complex system of grunts and exclamations that is the homo sapien language.
And "explanations" are completely subjective...how can there be explanations for what is a vast energy field constantly changing and forming shadows (perhaps!)
We're definitely not immortal, every moment is precious.
In other words: "Live for the moment, for you can never revisit the past and you could die any moment, never to arrive into the future."
In other words, yes. The entire thing is time and every increment is important. If one should want to pray for someone else, don't wish them a better future, wish them a better present. This world won't be destroyed by a God, it will meet it's end at the hands of time. I will enjoy it while I have it, life is too precious to fight over ideals. Fighting is a waste of that time and so is living in the past, I can never be that person again, only who I am now. I'll always be bound by the fourth dimension and time won't stop for me.
So, diogenes, do we accept that using metaphor is a valid practice? Describing things and concepts which are not describable?
People live in the past because they are afraid of change, forexample where I live the old traditions and customs are still evident although many are trying to modernize and move in to the future most are Neanderthals and refuse too, not because they are stubborn but because they afraid of change x
I have always had a problem with the Buddhist nowness.
Seems to me mighty boring the always only ever present now as external reality.
To me my memory is as much as the ever present as reality, because I am remembering now. However I do not dwell in the past much except as research, and focus mostly on thinking in the present, which may consist in my latest love but mostly problems I am engaged.

"Drop your past and live in the present" is a philosophy we often hear. Do you follow this?

If God is omni present and knows the past ,present, and future, then why would he test us when...he already knows the outcome of our actions?

Give me your month and day of birth (No need for the year) and I can tell you a little about your life.

Is it true that it is the past that produces the future in this present time? Is it also true that..... the future does not exist, and that we build the future from the fragments of the past?I am currently doing a research on Fibonacci Numbers Sequence and kind of stumbled on some weird discovery...

Life is full of challenges, trials and tribulations. What do you do to love your life in the now ... loving life in that moment! I have found that if I focus on the One Who loves me unconditionally, everlastingly and unfailingly then I can find something to love in the midst of a trial...

Do you dwell on the past and why?
