We should live as though we had no past and no future. Live for the moment by appearing outwardly as you feel inwardly.

I disagree. If people acted on what they are really feeling, people would be fighting one another all the time.

I can't really agree with that sentiment. Although our future is surely in question from moment to moment, living like we won't have one isn't such a great idea. Neither is that last part, many times.

The uncertainty of the future, and the whim of fate is what allows us the freedom to exist in the moment. Too many try to steer a course and thus fail to trust the winds to find their true destiny.

I have no trouble grasping, or experiencing, the concept of appreciating and being aware of, living in every moment.

Trusting the "winds" or whim of fate to find one's true destiny, not so much.

Of course you hunt in a mirror, Erasmus.

Who is more likely to catch the rabbit, the experienced hunter who has learned the habits of rabbits, or a rank novice?

The chaos of the garden. Is order so precious that we cannot see the glory of tumult?

Genocide can be very orderly. I suspect it is harder to achieve randomly.

Indeed, and so it is part of who we are today. Dwelling there serves no purpose.

We can't go back to the past, we can't go into the future. We can only be in the present moment.
