Some wisdom from Gene Wolfe, from the last several pages of Claw of the Conciliator, Book Two of The Book of the New Sun:

"All time exists. If the future did not exist now, how could we journey towards it? If the past does not exist still, how could we leave it behind us? In sleep the mind is encircled by its time, which is why we so often hear the voices of the dead there, and receive intelligence of things to come."

"In the final reckoning, there is only love, only that divinity. That we are capable only of being what we are remains our unforgivable sin."
