Try to get out of NOW
    #3586167 - 01/05/05 10:47 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

You can't do it... Life is just one big fucking now!!!
"Time" doesn't exist..... What was a second ago is now a second ahead that has already passed.


Try getting out of now again.




And now try it again.... you cannot.


I believe God's, or Higher Power's, or Devine Mind's, or Allah's, or Jah's, or Buddha's, or Jesus', or what evers' conciousness IS always.
If you try to seek God, etc., you missing the point.... All of the collective conciousness of the universe or multiverse lies in the NOW....
Want enlightenment? Just always try to be "present" and in the NOW..... Very hard yet very simple.

St. Augustine noted that the past does not exist anymore, the future doe not exist yet, and the present is merely the point where the past becomes continous with the future. So what is now?

Now is then,
and will be forever :P

Does this mean that we cannot live for the moment?

This cant really go anywhere. The future doesnt exist becuase it is now. The past existed once but no longer does because it is no longer... Uhh, now. So I guess theres no past or future, just now.

Ugh, thanks for making me think in circles.

I've already transcended now.
I live in next.
Eventually I'll live in then.
I definitely don't live in whenever. But I do live in wherever.

You get out through now.
There is nothing to get out of now to. Now already has what your trying to get out to, or of. In truth I think we may always be in now and also not in now, since time does not matter.


--------------------
No ONE wants to know the ultimate TRUTH, as soon as YOU find IT out, YOU want to forget IT.

You are everything's way of feeling itself.

Happy Schwag, everygodly!

We are always in Now, however our worries, anticipation, wonderment, and hopes keep us out of Now. Contrary to the first post, Now is very hard to obtain, just try not thinking about anything for one minute... it can drive you crazy!
