~~~ memory arises as a current thought and gives rise to the impression of time. In fact, all appearances refer to the eternity of presence in which and out of which they appear and are made of.
Memory does not affect presence. Memory may be a useful tool for navigation purposes. It is an appearance in the wide open sky of presence and does not stain it.
It is the belief that I am a mortal appearance, a mortal body mind rather than the presence itself, that leads to the impression of limitation, separation and selfhood.
It is identification with a form that constitutes the virus of ignorance and mortality.
