The past is an interpretation. The future is on illusion. The world does not move through time as if it were a straight line, proceeding from the past to the future. Instead time moves through and within us, in endless spirals. Eternity does not mean infinite time, but simply timelessness. If you want to experience eternal illumination, put the past and the future out of your mind and remain within the present moment.
In observing Lent this year, I committed to 40 days of love posts. These posts are from the Works of Shams Tabrizi, a Persian writer. Each post is from the body of work often referred to as The Forty Rules of Love. The images are free from Pixabay. The daily titles are mine.
