Zen teaches us…

Zen teaches that all things are impermanent, and existence is limited to just the present moment. In one respect, this makes a good deal of sense. What’s happened before is no longer with us. Nothing exists in the past. The past is simply a record of what existed during some present moment that is no longer. Similarly, the future has yet to be, and until it becomes the present, it contains things that only potentially but do not actually exist.

From “Zen and the Art of Running”…
