Name of Song: Your past is not your present

No matter what you feel,
No matter what you think,
No matter how you look at things
Your past is on the brink.

It isn’t YOU in any way,
Although it tries to be,
Present time is not your past,
Be now and you will see.

How you seem to look at things,
Direction locates one,
Instead locate yourself in time
and realize you have won.

Chorus
Your past is not your present,
Your present’s not your past,
Be calmly present in your now,
So often thought of last.
Your past is not your present,
Your present’s not your past,
Be calmly present in your now,
So often thought of last.

You’re always in the present,
It’s your mind that’s in the past,
Then the present to your future
so often thought of last.

You’re always in the present,
It’s your mind that’s in the past,
Then the present to your future
so often thought of last.

It’s all about understanding,
Spirits run the show,
But too much competition for
the power they all know.
