Imagine that you are traveling in this train.
Your train is moving at a high speed taking you towards your destination.
You just saw a beautiful place at a far off place.
That beautiful place is coming close to you with every passing moment.
You have now just passing through that beautiful place
Oh! That beautiful place has passed away and it is now going farther and farther from you
You can’t now see that beautiful place from your eyes.
Yet you can always see that beautiful scene from your mind BECAUSE it has become a beautiful past for you.
It would never come back again as the train (of time) keeps moving forward
- What has gone is PAST
- Where you are is PRESENT
- What lies ahead is FUTURE
Yet the past, present and future are not independent to each other.
They are one and same thing.
It is the future which becomes a past when it passes through the present.
Your present is just a fleeting moment which you can’t hold just like you can’t see any beautiful scenery for long when you are traveling in a train.
If you wish to have a beautiful present, you have to create a beautiful future in your dream and start the journey.
If you wish to have a beautiful past, you have to pass through that beautiful place which was first created in your dream.
You can’t enjoy your present, if you have no beautiful dream for future and no beautiful memories of the past.
