We tend to think and talk about the past a lot. We believe it is real, and so it seems to dominate a lot of our experience. But is the past real? Can the past be located?
Everything that claims to be the past in us - are they actually just false representatives of experiences that no longer exist?
The past can dominate the mind when we believe in it, when we take it to be real. If we see it as unreal, it does not hold power for disturbance.
