According to Buddha we’re not created by anyone, either a superior being or our parents. Instead, we’re the product of our own past. In a simple sense, you could say you come from previous moments of yourself. Think of your mind as a river of mental moments – your thoughts and feelings of now, in the simplest linear sense of cause and effect, your thoughts and feelings of now come from the previous moment of your thoughts and feelings. And your thoughts and feelings of the previous moment come from – guess what? – the previous moment of your thoughts and feelings.
