The concept that there is only the past and the future and that the present is only an illusion really made me stop to think. The analogy is like the beach and the ocean. There is the beach and there is the ocean and most of us think that there is line (something) between the two. But in reality there really is not.
This is all to say that time is a constant movement from the past to the future. Everything changes. Change is constant. We, therefore, must embrace change because it is inevitable. To believe that we will be the same in five years is unrealistic. You haven’t finally found your true self now that you’ve reached a certain age. Tomorrow will be another you.
Once we recognize that, we can start looking forward to and embracing the changes ahead rather than resisting them. And life can get even more interesting as we look forward to the new you.
