We dream of better times.
We dream of a better life.
Sometimes it is the future…
Sometimes the past.
The future where the problems of the present are gone.
The past where the problems of the present are not yet there.
We dream about the “good old times” that are gone.
We dream about happy times that are not yet there.
But we forget about the Knowledge…
The knowledge about the past’s future.
And this knowledge is terrifying – the wars and disasters and suffering.
And we shudder at the thought of that Knowledge.
We realize our life in the past would be impossible with this knowledge.
We dream about the Future…
But the future of our dreams is just that – a dream because we cannot know the future.
We are in the Present and we dream of better times.
Sometimes it is the Past.
But then we would know the Future and live in fear and anticipation.
Sometimes it is the Future.
But we don’t know the future and our dream could become a nightmare.
We live in the Present and we know the Past and we dream about the Future.
I know that the future is not just a dream.
We live in it every day.
We make the future.
And the future becomes the past every day of our lives.
By our action or inaction in the Present, we are building the Future and creating the Past…
And we call it Life.
We travel trough Life’s Present, Past and Future and are making choices every moment of our journey.
And hope not to miss the right turn.
