The idea that there's a past and a future is illusory. Which does not mean that there is not a past and a future. There is a past and a future in this world in relative time. Then, of course, there's timeless time. That realm of existence that's not defined in the Superconscious. True awareness. When we experience the ultimate reality, without words, without hidden meanings. But between the superconscious, and the conscious, there's a space, a gap, which each one of us experiences on the way towards the transcendental reality. It's the journey that we make called self-discovery.
