We can only be connected to spirit in the present moment. If we are thinking about the past or the future, we are not "in spirit," and therefore, as Wayne Dyer would say, we are not inspired. Rather, we are thinking about what we could have, should have, could or would do. Replaying the past in our creative practice can help us to work out past issues. Thinking about the future in the proper context can help us develop plans and goals to achieve our dreams. But, we must monitor our time in the past and future to ensure that it is healthy time, and we must stay mainly in the present moment to be inspired and in the creating state because when we are in the past and future, we are generally not creating.
