I wrote earlier today:
“Here and now” is too scary…- “there and then” is our constant choice.
We eagerly and diligently kill the moment, before it has a chance of being born”
Magnus´commented on Facebook:
“There is no “now”!
Everything is either then or after-wards.
When our minds have interpreted all impressions the present moment
has already passed.”
This is highly enlightening. Startling really. He puts forward the outlook
shared by many:
Now is nonexistent. Everything – Life! – is “then” or “after”.
“After what…really?”, I asked him.
Quite extraordinary to realize the way of the Mind.
Can you see that Mind is the outcome of an arbitrary division?
It´s stuck between a fix point calling it “then”, and a potential “after”.
Both “then” and “afterwards” are pure abstractions, – quite obvious.
Of course, Magnus´“then”, is in all likelihood very real in his experience,
but for whoever else, his projection of “then” is pure imagination.
Mind projects itself into an eternal “after” trying eventually to find safety,
through isolating itself in its invented duality.
“Now” is the Mind´s greatest threat in its immutable quest for security.
With other words, Now, – meaning pure and simple Life, as Life is always this
present moment – is the ultimate danger for the obsessively restless and
You can see clearly that “afterwards” is a preposterously loony abstraction,
as much as “then” is. Mind goes obviously from abstraction to another abstraction,
from false interpretation to another, struggling hard for its existence.
Abstraction breeding abstraction, breeding further abstractions in infinite distractions…
A delusional entity seeking to perpetuate a fix point – that´s what Mind is:
Now, as I approach this ubiquitous scenario in this way, you do agree with me that this
looks like a crazy masquerade. Yet, this “story told by an imbecile” is what Humanity takes for real life!…
Quite amazing isn´t it?
Mind is an abstraction deriving directly from Fear of Now – Life…
Time is thus the invention of the Fearful Mind fleeing itself in two arbitrary divisions:
Past and Future.
None of them is real. Likewise the entity who invented them – Mind.
The only time existing is NOW.
This Now beyond division is Who You Are.
