The Present Moment
The present moment shapes our future. It guides how our future moments will unfold. We understand past moments mainly through our memories. In our minds, we go through all the information we’ve gathered and pick a simple version of what happened in the past. However, we don’t remember every tiny detail. Instead, we recall longer periods that might last seconds or minutes. These memories aren’t exact. They are closer to a summary of our feelings and thoughts.
We often can’t fully understand or experience a moment when it’s happening because it’s hard for us to process everything. So, we depend on our memory to interpret it later, but our memory isn’t always accurate. It gets mixed up with other past moments. This means we can’t always remember exactly how we felt or what we thought in a specific moment. We use our memories to help us, even if they might not be 100% accurate.
