Everything we see, think or do is all in the past. Everything we see is from the past.
when you look at a cup, you are looking at your past association of cups. Is it glass or plastic. Would it break if you dropped it. What does the edge feel like on your lips. All that stuff is what you see the cup through. You do not see the cup as the cup, but as all the past cups you have seen.
Same thing with love. You see love through all the past ideas, experiences and views of love you have experienced.
Same thing with everything. Everything you say, think, do or experience is all the past.
Since your experience is the past, how can you possibly know what it is or isn’t now, how could you possible judge it as good or bad? How could you possibly know anything about now, the present?
You cannot know anything about now. Because it is all clouded by the past.
So what does this mean?
All those stories, all those things that are just “true” that upset you. All those things that just are the way that they are, that cause anything other than happiness in you, all those things, are not true at all. They are only the past.
Knowing this, it is going to be easier to let go of the things that are just true, or just the way it is, that are causing you anything other than happiness and peace.
