We try to fix our scars from the past and carry their pain into the future fearfully. But neither does the past or future exist, other than in our mind. If you are lost in the past and live in the future, how can you feel alive?
How can you see clearly, if you put an illusion of the past or future over the present moment ?
Those who live in the past mainly feel depressive, those who live in the future mainly feel anxious, those who live in the present are at peace.
All we have is now.
