Because our communications with dead people are uncertain at best, there are many living people who are ready, willing and "able" to help us know what our duties are, should be, and will be. They find it to their advantage to help us feel guilt and shame in order that we be attentive to their guidance regarding what we should do with our time, energy and resources. If we face towards the past and focus much of our attention and our resources upon the past --- we may tragically back into the future. We need to balance our attention so that we are not constantly facing the past and so stumbling backwards into the future. We also need to be careful that while facing the future we are not heedless of the lessons we might learn from the past. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
