“We must abandon completely the notion of blaming the past for any kind of situation we are in. And we have to reverse our thinking to see that the past always flows out of the present. That now is the creative point of life. And so, you see, it’s like the idea of forgiving somebody. You change the meaning of the past by doing that. It’s also like the flow of music. The melody as it is expressed is changed by notes that come later. The present is always changing the past.” – Alan Watts
