The Past Is Fixed; the Future Is Free Choice

The past is all fixed, was determined, and only painful emotion leads us to go back there in our heads and try to change it. It can’t be changed. If our beloved died, all we can do is say goodbye and cry. We can’t go back there.

The future is free, free choice. All the paths in the past converge to what did happen, therefore it is fixed, but in the future there is choice after choice after choice.
