Mandalas of Eternity
Be a thread of dissolving bubbles on a sea of presence.
Use the gift of thought to plan your past and remember your future. Mind is creative and playful as long it doesn't get stuck.
String each Now into the story you enjoy, but never forget that no actual thread links them. The timeline is purely imaginary.
And when you develop the art of getting "unstuck in time," like Billy Pilgrim, you can gaze into any Now you choose:
From the marvelous matriarchal cities of ancient Mycaea, to the destined ascent of our species into self-luminous mandalas of eternity:
Each of us a celestial rose, whose petals are every other; each a blossom of the seed that was there from the beginning, in the center of the heart.
