For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.


Paraphrasing * "With no desire and no fear. There is no future."

Brilliant! The future as we know is just this idea, as is the past, not remotely real. Only now, the "u" between the bu-bum of a heart is real and the rest we make up. You see only the center of your vision, the rest we make up. Why did the Buddha constantly remind monks to remove desire? Well it lead to a whole load of nonsense where people try to be desireless and virtuous but the point behind the removal of desire is to eliminate the idea of a future. The reason to let things go is to not live in the idea of a past. These practices when correctly lived are to draw 100% of your being to now, the only reality.

* "If there were no memory there would be no Past. If there were no desire or fear there would be no Future. The Present, renewed every instant, alone would remain, and it would be eternity for there could be no Time." Wei Wu Wei
