When we look at our experience, we realize that there is only now.
And we may realize that this now is not made out of time.
In fact, the now has a measurement of zero time.
Once you come to deeply understand the now that has zero time, the entire conversation about ‘after’ and ‘before’ becomes a children play.
The ‘impression of time’ is made out of thought and memory (which is a zero-time-now taking on the form of a thought).
