The past always reacts immediately; and to postpone the past´s reaction – when you are facing a challenge - so that there is a space between the challenge and the reaction - is to make an end of the image.
In the same way, there are no images in the space between the thoughts.
If this doesn´t happen, we will always live in the past.
We are the past, and there is no freedom in the past. We have our identity in an absence. This is consequently the way of our lives, a constant struggle, the past which, modified by the present, moves into the future – and that will say that it still is the past, the self-image and the world-image, which is moving, though modified.
As long as this movement takes place, Man can never be free, he must always live in conflict, in sorrow and confusion, in wretchedness and misery.
The question becomes whether the past´s reaction can be delayed, so that there not immediately is formed an image?
