I NEVER UNDERSTAND THE PRESENT UNTIL IT IS PAST
I never know where I'm going for I am too busy figuring out where I've BEEN
The past I make mine, the present makes ME
I am forever stepping from the known to the unknown, I build only BEHIND me
One foot always rests on sure footing, the other never rests at all
There is no end to this journey
there is always more to become
there is always more to FEEL
You will NEVER know where you're going, it is enough just to try and figure
out where you've BEEN. Every experience in life has held something for you,
especially the PAINFUL experiences. The basic requirement in life is that
you find out what it WAS. If you don't you cannot possibly grow beyond that
experience. Somewhere way back there in the darkness of your memory there
lurks yet a painful experience that you have not yet resolved, someone who
hurt you, someone you cannot forgive. There, my friend, is where you died.
If you cannot love your past you cannot LEAVE your past
