A Quote by Marianne Williamson on love, past, present, and now

We are not held back by the love we didn't receive in the past, but by the love we're not extending in the present.

A Quote by Fred Alan Wolf on minds, dimensions, realities, time, future, past, possibility, and quantum reality

Our minds are thus tuned or tunable to multiple dimensions, multiple realities. The freely associating mind is able to pass across time barriers, sensing the future and reappraising the past. Our minds are time machines, able to sense the flow of possibility waves from both the past and future. In my view there cannot be anything like existence without this higher form of quantum reality.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on now, memory, projection, past, and future

What you think of as they past is a memory trace, stored in the mind, of a former Now.  When you remember the past, you reactivate a memory trace -- and you do so now.   The future is an imagined Now, a projection of the mind.  When the future comes, it comes as the Now.  When you think about the future, you do it now.  Past and future obviously have no reality of their own.  Just as the moon has no light of its own, but can only reflect the light of the sun, so are past and future only pale reflections of the light, power, and reality of the eternal present.  Their reality is "borrowed" from the Now.

A Quote by Philip Jason on history, death, past, and future

the true history of the world is the history of things dying. what we learn from studying it is that all things die. there are many ways to pretend that this is not the case by making things seem more important than they actually are. it is the job of historians to enjoy doing this. all day long, dedicated historians find ways to cancel out the intrusion of death into all the circumstances that collectively constitute the great extended histories that they look to for clues with which to understand the future. because the future is a product of life and history is a recollection of death, they find nothing useful. but, it keeps them busy until they die.

A Quote by Jane Roberts on seth, jane roberts, present moment, beliefs, past, and past beliefs

Seth emphatically says: THE PRESENT IS THE POINT OF POWER.  According to him the point of power is where flesh and matter meet with spirit.  That juncture embodies the actions and beliefs we choose to draw from all previous points of power.  From our current present we project, for better or worse, those choices, plus any new ones we may decide upon, into each of the presents we'll be creating throughout the rest of our lives.  The contents of our projections, then, are of supreme importance. 

As Seth suggests through even a five minute exercise, in which we sit quietly and look about, we can become aware that the present is the point of power.  In his exercise, we gently remind ourselves that we aren't at the mercy of our past beliefs unless we think we are.  We have the full freedom to insert new creative goals in our point-of-power exercises.  Next, we relax, to give our fresh suggestions time to begin working within us.  Next, physically we make a simple gesture or act, no matter how modest, that is in line with our desires for the future.  Periodically we repeat the exercise --- but easily, without pressure, confident that we're doing well.  Action is thought in physical motion, Seth tells us.... In The Nature of Personal Reality Seth deals extensively with the point of power, its exercises and meanings and benefits.  See especially sessions 656-57 in Chapter 15.

A Quote by D. J. Rees on past, regret, possibility, motivation, and growth

Why is it, we focus so strongly on what has happened, rather than what CAN happen? Do we do this for ourselves? Do we do this TO ourselves? I want to move from where I am, not back from where I was.

A Quote by MaNnUzZ on friend, life, past, future, road, sanity, and world

 

  • A Good Friend is a connection to life - a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world

A Quote by Richard David Bach on past, future, choices, spiritual, and change your mind

You are led
through your lifetime
by the inner learning creature,
the playful spiritual being
that is your real self.

Don't turn away
from possible futures
before you're certain you don't have
anything to learn from them.

You're always free to change your mind and
choose a different future, or
a different
past.

Richard Bach (1936 -)
