The only aspect of time which is really eternal is now. – ACIM
the eternal now
Time is illusory. Certainly it is relative. Kids have a very different experience of time versus adults. People on vacation will enjoy time while those in prison might suffer through it. All this variation in our experience has everything to do with time being a mental construct. And this brings us to eternity. Eternity isn’t an endless number of years, which is why many dread it. It is the absence of time. Eternity can be experienced when all sense of time is lost. And such an experience can readily be had when we arrive squarely into the Now. Beyond all thought, is the Now, an experience of eternity.
