When did jesus say those things? Some other gospel maybe apocrypha books? Cus I have never read none of that. except the: be as one of these (little
children) to enter heaven.
(Ok past,present,future: past was right now, future is right now, present is right now, sitting here typing that all in the same)
I have a broken finger I know it hurts now, I know it hurt yesterday, and I know it will bother me tomorrow. The pain doest bother me from the past
the action that caused the injury does… so how can I change the past so that tomorrow it won’t affect me?
edit: just changing my past.

This is a tricky one when dealing with pain.....( right now )
in my own experience of being in pain ....(a very painful back injury) some years ago
It was the fact that I kept trying to run away from the pain ..that kept on dragged itself into the future
( my fear of pain in the future )
Once I had accepted the pain for what it was.... the pain then began to change
acceptance of what is "here right now" is what gives you the power to change the future
pain can be an emotional struggle because there is no running away from it
pain is a "now thing" ..which at the time feels as if it is with out end.
"acceptance of the situation" is what is used to move out of the clinging emotional state
this in turn clears the mind and allows the mind to re-focus
some one explains this to me about clear mind re-focusing, this was at a time when I felt I would not ever be free of pain again...as I had been two
months off work and was not able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
What a difference in perspective I had ...when I truly owned my pain in the moment
and accepted the situation I was in ...
with in days the pain subsided and I was up and walking again ....
in a way I had broken out of the prison pain...that I had trapped myself in.
one might say
I no longer needed the pain to keep me trapped and so through my acceptance
I simply opened the door and walked out ...
lesson learned ....and so was able to continue on my way ......
(that was a very short version ...of how the future can be changed )
needless to say ..no matter where one feels trapped in their life ...
the acceptance of that given situation is the first step in breaking out of that self created trap.
life is all in the way you look at it .......
