"The  present is based on our past, and the future is built based on our  present."

 

Some of the wonderful quotation from great people: 

 

"Life is a series of experiences, each of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realise this  For the world was built to develop character and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching forward."      Henry Ford

 

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present. “

First, your sentence is incomplete. It is a dependent clause in search of a main, independent clause. Your can correct this by adding this clause (however, we cannot guess at what you intended) or by deleting "Because." In either case, the first "past" (immediately after because) is not needed and must be deleted. The following is a complete sentence:

 

The present is base on the past and the future is build on the present/presence experience.

 

The sentence still has two verb form errors. "Is base" should be "is based", and "is build" should be "is built". The adjective "present" is correct, while the noun "presence" is a near homonym  that means "the state or fact of existing, occurring, or being present in a place or thing." 

 

The present is based on the past and the future is built on the present experience.

 

I could quibble about whether experience is necessary -- I personally think it wordy -- but it is not grammatically incorrect.
