    The insight I got from studying “at” Zen for a while: You may successfully live in the moment, but for best results, you need to plan ahead, so you get enough practice that you don’t need to think it through when the time comes.

    As for that last guy, he’s right to the extent that wisdom comes from experience… and experience comes from making mistakes… all of which must have already happened for it to do you any good.

    Presently we are learning from the past so we are able to know where we want to be. Life in the fast lane on the highway of life.

    [“Life in the Fast Lane" is a song written by Joe Walsh, Glenn Frey and Don Henley, and recorded by the American rock band the Eagles on their 1976 studio album Hotel California. “Life Is a Highway" is a song by Tom Cochrane from his second studio album, Mad Mad World (1991). ]

    I’d join the guy on the right watching reruns of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” on his cave TV.

    Memories show us as we once were

    Dreams show us as we would like to be

    Education, perseverance, and a sense of humor help us along the way

    Serendipity makes the trip interesting

    Or, as a wise man once said Life ain’t no easy gig. You gotta find your beat

    Wisdom is simply the discovery of the information you need, when you need it, to do what you need to do in time to avoid making another mistake.

    You can look to the future, you can look to the past, but you can only live in the present. It is always “now,” and you are always “here.”

    You can be better and wiser tomorrow than you were yesterday; it depends on what you do today.

    I don’t understand.

    Three neatly lettered aphorisms, dealing with time: one to be mindful of the future, one to be mindful of the present, and one to be mindful of the past. Future guy is wearing a suit, but has no candle. Present guy is wearing Buddhist robes (Kasaya from Mahāsāṃghika?) and his candle is guttering (because its a very old sect?). Past guy is wearing a hoodie? And his candle is fresh.

    Is this story all about the (superficiality of the) seeker?

    It is sad we don’t learn from history. From pandemics, racism, empire building and even wars, you can see how we ignore the lessons our father’s before warned us about. Even in the 17th and 18th centuries they realized the importance of isolation and covering the face, and innocultions, as preventive step to contain an incurable disease.
