I hope those of you who comment Happy Birthday listen to the talk. It is a good one. The more I do these talks, a Fresh Step in the morning. , the more I feel I’m finding my voice, my heart voice that speaks not only as Me but as You too, the One voice that has two faces, yours and mine.
That is the Zen of it, finding that One that is Two, finding that ONE at the center of the world, while at the same time being in the world as two, You and IT (something in the world).
This I-IT relationship which is you versus IT or something is the world of time and space. You can measure the distance between things in the world, you can time their movement. But when you are at the Center of the World, you cannot measure you time and distance because the center does not move. The Center is the center of the merry-go-round of time/space, and we are on the merry-go-round riding this or that horse, going up and down trying to get somewhere, but from the center, the Birth Day, you are at the center and time goes around you. That center is the timeless Present Now.
And you get here by blowing out the candle of time. But you still have time, only now Time is play on the merry-go-round of up and down emotions and mental states. You see?
When you see and feel (the feeling is important) the Play of Time, you are at the timeless center, the joyful center. With the center, time is joyless.
