“I see only the past.”
The text offers the example of a cup. I could think of any object, situation, people, relationship and organization and the role they play in my experience. The way I am accustomed to viewing any of them is based on my take on their history, on my take on the road they have traveled up to the moment that I interact with them. Now the question arises: Is that view sufficient to live my life fully in the present moment?
With this statement the course is helping me to see the restriction I put upon myself by relating to people and things in terms of their imagined history.
