Present – PAST – Future

The present itself has never burdened a man. We are burdened only by our expectations


When we observe the starry sky in the evening we gaze, more or less, into the distant past. In the stars that are the furthest we see the most distant past, and in those that are the closest the nearest one. In any case we gaze into the past from our present.

It is the same with people. Two people that are confronted gaze each from their own or spatial present at one another, with a minimalistic temporal delay into the past, into their own starting point or temporal present.

Thus they reflect with the © speed or balance the space and time, like the left on the right and the right on the left. Therefore, whenever we look at a space, the temporal information returns to us like feedback. When we gaze at the Sun, we gaze seven minutes into the past. When we gaze at the sky, we see the stars that have been gone for billions of years.

Man should thus agree with himself and live with his present which is the only actual one. When, in the world that he gazes at, he tries to enforce an ambition of his future, he puts future into the past and the result is – complete nothingness or unidentified present.

Mostly rely and live in the present. But it is difficult to accept the present because we have the feeling that we do not exist – as if we were dead.

If man said: ‘Whatever happens, happens. Let the time pass me by’, then he would be very strong. By that he would agree with himself and with the present. He would thus reveal all the past and with it the nonsense of the human world. The moment somebody grabs and says: ‘Business is the real deal’, he grabs onto one of the elements of the past and his soul loses the basic message of the present.

The present is on the vertical that is the temporal part of the cross of reality in ourselves, whereas what we see around us is the spatial part or the horizontal. According to the horizontal rules of left and right, the passing is thus balanced. What we see as the future we balance with the notions of left and right or with logic (If I want to buy a car I need to earn money, etc.).

The present is on the vertical or the basis and is consequently without identity and infinite. In us it opens up quietly, without our will and triggers feelings. When we are remembering something, the past is speaking to us. And when we imagine something, the future is speaking in us. Whenever we are caught in the past and the future, the present is silent.

When it speaks, it speaks in a language that is so exceptional and unique that it is practically impossible to pass it on to another person. The hardest for a man to describe is ‘the now’. When we really love somebody, words cannot describe our feelings. The same way we cannot describe the peace that we feel. We cannot describe the pain. Consequently nobody knows the feelings of another. That fact is the most hidden between us, although it is the most present among us.

All this are blabbers of the present that cannot be compared to anything as the present has no left or right and is therefore without identity. We always describe what has happened to us or what we dream about. Psychological problems always arise in regards with what we anticipate or when we miss something that has passed. Nobody is ever burdened with the present. It is difficult to say whether the present is nice or not. Not until it passes do we know what it was like. The present itself therefore never burdens a person. What burdens us are our expectations.

No man has ever moved temporally. Just the same as the present was there when we were born, we are in the present at this very moment and will in the end die in it. The secret of the mastery of the present is the secret of God and it is what is the most hidden from our eyes as it is on the same place as we ourselves. That is the automaticity of this life. Automaticity is not dividable and it would therefore be nonsensical to dissect or define it. We can only accept it.

The master of accepting the automaticity of life is in his own present each man himself. This mastery is reflected in the power of each individual’s soul, and mirrors man’s acceptability, love and trust in the reality before him, for it is the Creator itself. To trust Him, to remain in your own present and to be your own present. That is supposed to be the only meaning of every person’s life. A man therefore does not need to be wise nor does he have to turn toward any kind of spirituality. It is enough if we reconcile ourselves – the way we were born and in the end, each of us with our own present.

When a man does not accept the reality before him, his non-acceptance in his present binds him to unrest. It binds him to paranoia, when he wants to run away from it. To a wish, if he does not become reconciled. To unrest, when he wants something. To peace, if he abstains. To tranquillity, if he does not demand. To joy, if he gives in to others. Everything depends on the individual’s characteristics and is a complete psychological definition. It is thus obvious that peace is conditioned by each man himself.

The only universal law above us is thus the law of our present. We were born into the present, have lived in it and are living in it. The thing we call time is the movement past us and our present and each of us in our present feels it as the rule of reality or the passing. According to this rule everything – all the temporal manifestations, spatial presents or everything that is physically present – is caught in passing.

According to the physical or spatial rule there cannot be two things at the same place. Everything that is physically present is caught in its own or spatial present. But according to the temporal rule, a man can, being a being of free will, with his acceptance – with his soul which is free since it is the temporal part of a person and consequently not bound to anything – outweigh this entrapment and thus nullify the passing. Death is nullified because the passing equals death. If a fellow man did the same, then two souls would be united in the same time or in one spirit and that is what the church calls: ‘Two in one.’ (You in me and I in you – life.)
