And there is the timelessness of living without a personal past - relating to life's flow in the present as that which is most real.
The first penetrates the fabric of time, creating the experience of the Eternal as a living reality.
The second penetrates the illusion of a personal self shaped by history and bound to it.
To live timelessly in time is a gift to the experiencing self and to humanity as well, for it embodies the sacred within human form. It does not do away with relationship or connection with others, but rather enfolds these in the ultimate perspective of Divine Love. It does not do away with the self as a point of consciousness, but rather transforms this into part of the Oneness.
Timelessness and time are not opposites but two parts of the same thing. Time is the vessel. The timeless is what is poured into it.
