The distinction between past, present and future is merely a stubbornly persistent illusion.

Albert Einstein

 

Quick now, here, now, always –

A condition of complete simplicity

(Costing not less than everything)

T. S. Eliot, Four Quartets

 

If the distinction

between past, present and future

is nothing but an illusion,

then even back then, we contained within us

the person we are today.

We’ve had all of our tomorrows;

we’re still living our yesterdays –

and everything, everything, everything

is happening here, now, and always.
