You can only achieve in the Now. There is no past or future. There is only the moment, the present time. If you could do away with the words “past” and “future” you would be much better off in life. In reality, the past and future are only illusions.[googmonify]4494413162:right:250:250[/googmonify]
It is the ego that needs the concepts of past and future as points of reference from which to operate. But the ego tends to fear the present moment and it hides away in these illusions. This separates us from a direct and clear experience of reality as it is. If you could stop thinking in these terms it would help reduce the grip of your ego, it would help reduce stress, and it would help you to make better decisions in each moment.
Since there is no past and no future, what’s to worry about? The only reality is Now, and at this instant the rent is paid. It’s all a matter of create, create, create. What do you wish to see before your eyes? It is your choice. If you go down in flames, you can rise again like the Phoenix. You must not be afraid to take a risk, to take a chance. Ultimately you will only regret the risks you didn’t take in life.
