time

Eternity is one time

Eternity is one time, its only dimension: always.

~ ACIM

All that is necessary is to love and to accep the present moment as the best

Let us become attuned to that Transcendental Being imparted to all things by divine action. It deserves our attention, and those who heed it with an open heart and with confidence and courage need not fear. For divine action has always been the source from which flows a torrent of grace which spreads over everything. Our lives flow unceasingly in that unknown deep where all that is necessary is to love and to accept the present moment as the best, with perfect trust in God's universal goodness.

~ from SACRAMENT OF THE PRESENT MOMENT by Jean Pierre de Caussade

I resolve never to lose one moment of time

I resolve to live with all my might while I do live. I resolve never to lose one moment of time and to improve my use of time in the most profitable way I possibly can. I resolve never to do anything I wouldn't do if it were the last hour of my life.
 

~ Jonathan Edwards

Time is not a line but a dimension, like the dimensions of space

Time is not a line but a dimension, like the dimensions of space. If you can bend space you bend time also, and if you knew enough and could move faster than light, you could travel backward in time and exist in two places at once.

Cat's Eye
By Margaret Atwood

May we live in today

May we live in today
and never in the future
or the past,
or come too late
to those we love.

~ from MARY, CALLED MAGDALENE by Margaret George

The present in which all times are included

The present in which all times
are included, is one:
a unity in itself.

~ Nicolas of Cusa

The mystery of time

One of the greatest mysteries in life is the mystery of time. Everything that happens to us, happens to us in and through time. Time is the force that brings every new experience to the door of your heart. All that happens to you is controlled and determined by time. Time opens up and opens out the mystery of the soul.

~ from ANAM CARA by John O'Donohue

How you slice up your time

How you slice up your time also reflects how you identify yourself.

~ from IN HER TIME by Iris Sangiuliano

Now, this moment, is all there is

Memory is the repository of the past, which is where most of our living takes place. We have divided life into past, present, and future, and this division, like all of our divisions, removes us from the fullness of living, from the mysterious unknown and unknowable movement of life that is the source of all beauty. The past exists only in memory, and the future is merely a projection of past memories. Now, this moment, is all there is.

~ from THE SECRET OF THE YAMAS by John McAfee

There was a young lady named Bright

There was a young lady named Bright
Whose speed was much faster than light.
She went out one day
in a relative way,
And returned the previous night.
