We are Beings traveling through time.
We exist only in the now.
Not in the past.
Not in the future.
Our lives are a collection of present moments.
Each moment is completely fresh.
It is our emotions that put a particular spin on that moment.
Our memories of the past, both cherished and hated are just memories and bear only a faint resemblance to reality. They are colored by all kinds of thoughts.
The future does not exist.
Our thoughts of the future exist only in the now; full of all kinds of hopes and dreams.
Now is all we have.
