We should live as though we had no past and no future. Live for the moment by appearing outwardly as you feel inwardly. (0)

I can't really agree with that sentiment. Although our future is surely in question from moment to moment, living like we won't have one isn't such a great idea. Neither is that last part, many times.

The uncertainty of the future, and the whim of fate is what allows us the freedom to exist in the moment. Too many try to steer a course and thus fail to trust the winds to find their true destiny.

I have no trouble grasping, or experiencing, the concept of appreciating and being aware of, living in every moment.
Trusting the "winds" or whim of fate to find one's true destiny, not so much.

your past is what you today

You do not hunt in a mirror, and you do not skin a rabbit that is not in your hand.
says ErasmusB_FurmanSmall on Feb 2nd 18 (#2719061)
Of course you hunt in a mirror, Erasmus.
Who is more likely to catch the rabbit, the experienced hunter who has learned the habits of rabbits, or a rank novice?

I am sad to inform you, you already do.

I disagree. If people acted on what they are really feeling, people would be fighting one another all the time.
says StarzAbove on Jan 29th 18 (#2717549)
Such a jaundiced view of humanity.
says ErasmusB_FurmanSmall on Feb 2nd 18 (#2719063)
No, I just face the facts.
says StarzAbove on Feb 2nd 18 (#2719088)
I worry about everything & nothing all at the same time.

Sounds like a recipe for chaos :(
says Bub on Jan 31st 18 (#2718057)
The chaos of the garden. Is order so precious that we cannot see the glory of tumult?
says ErasmusB_FurmanSmall on Feb 2nd 18 (#2719064)
The past is what made us today.
says hootowl on Feb 2nd 18 (#2718913)
Indeed, and so it is part of who we are today. Dwelling there serves no purpose.
says ErasmusB_FurmanSmall on Feb 2nd 18 (#2719065)
We can't go back to the past, we can't go into the future. We can only be in the present moment.
