When a ship sails, it leaves a wake. This wake does not push the boat forward, but is left behind. In this insightful short video, late philosopher Alan Watts compares a ship’s wake to the past. The past cannot push our future forward any more than a wake can push a boat. Our past is behind us. So let go of those lingering, nagging events of the past and live in the now.
