The past is

The past is an interpretation.
The future is on illusion.
The world does not more through time
as if it were a straight line,
proceeding from the past to the future.
Instead time moves through and within us,
in endless spirals.
Eternity does not mean infinite time,
but simply timelessness.
If you want to experience eternal illumination,
put the past and the future out of your mind
and remain within the present moment.
