' Time is a trick '...


The notion that the truth will be gained, that happiness will be achieved, that the Overself will be realized at the end of a long attempt must be seen as an illusory one.

Truth, happiness, and the Overself must be seen in the Present, not the future, at the very beginning of his quest, not the end, here and now.

It is not a matter of time.

This is because time is a trick the mind plays on itself; because the past, the present, and the future are all rolled into one eternal NOW; because what is to happen has already happened.
