I heard many times before that i should live the present. I’m not sure the real reason people say that but i do have some ideas on this matter. Firstly the obvious idea: we live the present. We don’t live the past or the future instead we use past and future to project our selves. Projecting for the future helps creating it. More traditional people believe it to be called planning and strategy. More advanced ideas as the teories from quantum physicists support that you really create your future in your mind. The physical result is actually controlled by your mind’s projection of it. So you can project for the future as a benefit. But what about the past? This one should be easier to figure out because it is already there. It’s all written. Even so it can be more deceptive than the mysterious future. If you live your present according to your future you will be creating. If you live your present according to your past you will be stuck in it. The past is nothing more than a giant series of information coming from everywhere including our own journeys. When you look at it you start to use your memory. So far so good. It’s important to learn but we learn from mistakes and many times mistakes hurts us. So this information is not for free. It comes with a lot of things we don’t want or need to access. That’s where we create our defenses. That’s where we learn to fear. The big question is: How to get this information without the pain? People gotta be brave and take it? Even so the result is not that great. You learn to be afraid of heights but the feeling that comes with it can be as dangerous as heights depending on the situation. I’m using a simplistic example here. Think about other things we learn. We develop Karmas. We keep doing the same mistakes. That way we are repeating a projection for the past. The fat guy repeats his eating everyday. The dumb girl keeps choosing the wrong guys. We do to our kids the same things our parents did to us. The most creative we can be is to do the opposite. But getting free from this legacy and trying something new is something very uncommon. I think that’s nothing we can do about it. But i also think if we have this in mind we can do much more by trying. And the best way to try it is to focus on the present. Because life is in the present. The future is a possibility and the past is a big trap. I believe the present is a shadow of our souls. The past and the future are shadows of our present. Present= Life.

As i said before we are star stuff and we are expanding since the beginning of the universe. Everything seams to be evolving or growing or being born or dying and giving place for the new. I believe that’s all related. If you imagine the big bang as a regular explosion you will remember something about all explosions. They get big. They expand. That until they stop and grow smaller until they fade away. If our solar system were to be considered a grain of sand or dust in the middle of this explosion that can help us picture what is happening around us. But because human life is so short in universal time and space we can’t actually notice much going on. Most astrologists agrees one day the expansion may stop and star growing back to it’s origin. They also agree that things tend to happen by the same laws either they are big as a galaxy or small as a virus so things usually act the same way in all levels. Those are the laws. That makes me think we as humans and as part of this big expansion act as all the rest. We have the instinctive need to expand. That’s why we feel the need to grow up, to grow rich, to grow powerful, to go as far as we can in everything we do. We fell the need to be part of this expansion. For us to expand means very logically to do more and to have more of we already have and be more than we already are. When i look around that’s what i see but i always remember about Karma. Not the “past life Karma” but the psychological one. The idea we keep making the same mistakes, choosing the same wrong lovers, teaching our kids the same mistakes our parents teached us,doing the same destructive routines, making the same bad choices all over again. It seams to me that maybe we are missing something. That can’t be right. To expand is not always to keep growing the same way. If we remember evolution for a while, things evolve when they chance, mutate, when something uncommon happens and the course change. That made us humans from just energy and half a dozen different elements. At last, if i can use a more spiritual approach to conclude this, there should be a reason for us to be here in this life. If this reason has to do with simple expansion we just have to keep doing more and more of the same stuff and keep feeding our Karmas. But evolution shows us a different path. Things evolve when something unexpectedly happens. And i believe evolution fits better to the model of expansion in our universe . So maybe we are not suposed to follow the karma and the reason they are so hard to break is that we are changing the direction of something that is going on for a long time. Universally long. But that’s also why i think that’s our mission. To kill the karma. To evolve. To stop doing bad choices and keep doing only the good ones. That’s the real meaning of evolution and that’s in my opinion a very reasonable and worthy meaning to our existence. To the existence of everything in this universe. Not just to grow but to grow but to evolve.
