The now is the silence of yesterday

Jay:
The past is a progression…without it there would be no today…..there is no objective reality out there….its all relative…so, to me, my past matters…

Me:
What we call “past” is basically memory. All these bundles of memories – which make the separated Ego, the “me” – become so heavy, and in the long run “defend” us from being in seamless connection, really, in touch with the freshness of the Present Moment…

I am not in the least attempting to contradict your viewpoint, I just wonder:

If our Past has such a crucial importance as to how we define ourselves, then in what relation are we to this fresh and “never-happened” Now?…
