No One Comes to Light

No One Comes to Light

Our Meditation is time out of time. In our meditation there is no time; there is just this, just what is! Just what is happening, but happening without a now! The now is only known in the context of not then and not latter. In our meditation there is no thought of then or latter and thus there is now.

When now is transcended, no one comes to light.

A ‘someone’ is always now in relation to then – the past, then – the future.

No now; no one, just mind sight, mind light – that’s All!

John B.
