Buddhism

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. --- Buddha

“Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural and spiritual; and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity." --- Albert Einstein

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind. --- Buddha

wat matters is freedom value

than, it is better to dwell in the past or dream of the future if the present living sense is not urself out of all

the present is metaphysically made of 3 things, self freedom, else freedom, freedom objective reality of the two

else is not the other, bc only what is completely different allow u or allow it to b present too, only truth is else to individual freedom since truth is always objective freedom, while evil which is also objective ways had provn that it cant leave else alone bc essentially live by else abuse

that is why being present is almost impossible, as if one must b free from objective all free realities and that is why buddhism always look hypocrit and submissive to evil, bc it lives from knowin without doing anything

the only thing missin to make it all sound right, is objective freedom recognizin clearly self freedom as present too
so the other side of the equation presency

which is what all is expectin and waitin for to happen

then when self freedom is true there wont b but present thing

then it would b proven how what is recalled being past and future are lies
to take advantage of times missin present life

in all definition the present is what include everything related to its fact
so the true sense of future is in the present freedom meanin a relative thing so clearly
as also the true sense of past is in the present objective reality free ends being absolute limits since never free

“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” --- Buddha

no, u r always only u there is no quest or else there, but all is not u while infinite always more, then findin a way that objectively would prove u being not inferior and respected as free always is crucial and essential to any individual conscious being

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. --- Buddha

Nah, you haven't nailed it. It's being here and now only. Seeing and feeling here and now only. You can't reinvent the past nor can you live in the future. Here and now is all you have. All you have is the present. When you live in the present, you are alive.

for u bc u dont care but about what u could get from being, while objectively u dont matter at all honey, only truth matter as it is free so any truth is always a reason of positive existence as constant plus that all rely on

present is ur living sense confusions with others when objective life is evil always

present dont matter that is how all present beings are mortals and present gods nonexisting

only truth constancy is existence so existence fact in truth is the present value only

and despisin all what i might b or know for ur now fashion pretense of knowin powers sense, are all to ur worth and end
all what i say is subjectively realized so it belongs totally to myself means which are to point all and everything being absolute evil life
and not for any positive thing as u buy from titles that u cant give even a sentence of urself

In the first place, your texting in this format is really obnoxious, IMHO.

You again are trying to applying western civilization and Christianity to Easter Philosophy and spirituality. And are not making any connections at all.
