We are convinced somehow that there is a “me” who has a past and who is moving towards a future. Somehow we never question this. To question this is considered to be silly and weird as there really is a “me” and there really is something called “time”. Period.
All “me’s” hope that tomorrow will be better. We hope to GET something special in the future. That could be success, fame, money, enlightenment, happiness, more respect, a new friendship or whatever. But, does tomorrow exist anywhere else but in our mind?
What if there is only All-Of-This (the whole boundless universe actually) and it is always NOW only? One could also say: “everything happens in timelessness”.
It is not hard to see that psychological time is imagined. We just don’t seem to really accept it! Our mind constantly thinks about the past or about the future. The “this, now” seems to be so plain normal, so boring or unacceptable that the “me” cares little for it. Typically we overlook it, almost constantly.
But what when you realize that “tomorrow” is never ever anything more than a thought or a concept in your mind? What if you truly deeply feel and accept that all there IS, all of Existence, is NOW?
Anything that ever happens, is always happening now, isn’t it? So if nothing ever happens or exists except NOW, then what?
Somehow the “me” can’t live there, it can’t accept it. The “me” can only exist if there is time, if the past matters and when there is a future that will bring something new, or better or more satisfying. Right?
But what if all that exists, is always now only? Stay with that simple question and see how it transforms “you”!! The mystery of existence can become apparent through such questioning.
Q: what happens for “you”, if you stay with this question? Let us know.
PS: yes, it is understood that time is a practical tool or concept when planning on catching a train, being on time for appointments, etc. But that’s truly not the point here.
