If there is no past, there is no future

There is nothing linking THIS moment to a past moment (let alone your entire “life history”!) except a thought.
– Michael Jeffreys

As of late, I have pondered in the same “direction”, and I totally agree with him on this.

The question is:

Can we also apply the same “logic” and say “There is nothing linking THIS moment to a future moment (“let alone your entire “future history”) except a thought?…

There is a sense of peculiar “non-continuity” which has totally baffled me lately…which is anything but easy to embrace, speaking from the ubiquitous point of view of the societal notion of what Sense, or Life is expected to be…

If there is no past, and no future, than HOW are we supposed to go about?

What is exactly the implication of this?…

Could we discuss this together?

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    Life is movement-the now movement-Lets dance or sit Zazen and let our mind dance between thoughts. sway back and forth, turn in circles, gyrate and sing stretch out our arms and embrace the vibrating, shaking, jumping, undulate your belly and breathe into and out of the universe sway the hips in circles and feel the breeze of your breath on your life. Do you hear the drums, the bells the bass all moved by the beating in your breast and the pumping of the lungs. rejoice

      Simply fantastic. A big thank you!!

      Your words hit me as strikingly similiar to what I have always felt and feel, but didn´t quite dare to embrace as “truth”…

      I have to say to you that the last paragraph touched me enormously. It´s as if Life speaks directly to me.

      “Do you hear the drums, the bells the bass all moved by the beating in your breast?”…

      You see, that is LITERALLY what I have been hearing for the last 25!!!! years within me. Such powerful and frenzied sounds and complex rhythms, such extatic swirling…Yet, albeit being a composer, and knowing beyond doubt that my soul wants me to “push” this music out into “materiality”, by whatever reason I couldn´t bring myself together to do that.

      It is really formidable. I could invoke millions of reasons as to why I have always postponed it…Fear of myself, fear of this overwhelming greatness, fear of being “drawn” out ouf myself…

      Anyhow…I am rather speechless…
