How do we resolve the paradox of eternal presentness and the construct of time, in our ever-so-spiritually aware world? It’s been a conundrum to be sure.
One of the things I found after NPA became intricately enmeshed withÂ my world, was that many apparent spiritual paradoxes faded into smiles as the non-personal perspective came alive in me. So I thought I would offer the non-personal perspective into this debate, as it’s one thatÂ has caused confusion and consternation in many an awakened Soul.
Now is Good. Future is Bad.
This cheeky little subtitle references George Orwell’s Animal Farm, where the sheep chant the pigs decree: “Four legs good, two legs bad”…
Well, it’s a popular view in modern spirituality, that experiencing the ‘now’ is good, whilst entertaining the future (or past for that matter) is somehow less enlightened. For those who approach spirituality as a goal oriented sport (obviously not you, but you probably know someone who does) this is high octane fuel for your seeker missiles. Eternal presents, a fine target to aim for…
The thing is, you are in the present moment anyway. How could you be anything else?
The mechanism of experience is the same regardless of time constructs.
The Present is the touch point of, and cornerstone reference for, our human experience.
Future Flavoured Translations
There’s nothing YOU have to DO to be present.
And even the EXPERIENCE of the present is a construct.
This, my friend, is the realisation that you ARE what you are seeking… there is nothing for YOU to DO…
In that, all constructs are free to come and go. Past, Future, Present… the dream… the experience…
We are, quite simply, witnessing and experiencing a stream of translations in the matrix of infinite possibility.Â The stream unfolds as it does, and sometimes future flavoured translations float by…
So, I encourage you to enjoy the game of future events, and watch the unfolding of reality in the present.
Namaste, eternal time travellers 😉

The Mind of Man can be self limiting. Beyond that obstacle, anything is possible.
Well said Michael – and I would go even further and say that the JOB of the mind of man is to be self limiting AND explore beyond that to those infinite possibilities 😉 Namaste Sir!
