    Past, Present, Future
    by Fion Lim

    Don't get stuck in the past,
    Where you linger on and on in familiarity,
    And replay old memories over and over again.

    Don't overindulge in the future,
    Where you daydream about leading a grand life endlessly,
    And imagine the sweetest days you could ever live.

    Don't neglect your present,
    Where true life begins to unfold and pass you by silently,
    And you wonder about missed opportunities and lost moments.

    For lessons, quietly contemplate about your past,
    And you might realize life has cleverly placed you in situations,
    That demanded you to raise up to the challenges and to grow.

    To reduce your anxiety and panic attacks, make plans for your future,
    And you might see that your dreams and goals are acting like guiding lights,
    Shining the path for you to follow through and learning to overcome your fears.

    To avoid the state of merely existing, be aware of your present,
    And you might notice that you are part of a grander scheme,
    Where the past is long gone and the future has yet to come,
    And that your present is the most precious moment you could ever feel.

    Your past and your future both lie in your present,
    Where your present wields the power to influence and change,
    The way you think about your past either with gratitude or with regret,
    And shape your future to either a success or a failure.

    Live totally in the present,
    Enjoying each and every moment,
    Where it is all happening,
    Where it truly matters.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
