This is not difficult to understand. The present moment is so brief as to be virtually nonexistent. It is sandwiched between two convincing illusions but contains both. But if there is no time, then what is distance? Distance/space cannot exist. It would have to be known and this knowing would take time, which we know, does not really exist. Yet the space that allows me to write this and earlier, to move downstairs and make breakfast, is very convincing.
We talk about Here. All happens Here – and Now. The here, is it within me? Is it a physical, measurable space that I occupy, or is it the limits of my perception, stretching to horizon near or far? I walk a hundred yards to that tree over there, when I get to that abstract There I will realize that, I am still Here. In fact I am Here every step of the way and can never step away from my Here-ness.
All There, is experienced Here. And only here. And if this is true then There must be dependent on Here, like past and future are dependent on Now. Like this, I am reduced to a dimensionless point radiating reality, occupying none of it, yet experiencing all.
Hi Holger, I offer this Sunday muse up for the non-duality site. Just trying to clarify my inklings – if that’s not an offense 🙂 Kevin.
