NOW

When I was born there were about 2 billion NOWs going on.  NOW there are around 3.7 times that number or ~ 6.79 billion - no 2 are the same one. Enjoy yours!

Everybody has lots of these unique nows ... they are the opposite of rare things.  What, for me, is surprising is how spectacularly different they all are ... especially yours, and every body else's, from my own.   Frequently i find people thinking that their nows can be generalized to include mine ... but when they generalize like that, i notice that they are almost always wrong about it.   So ... glory in your own nows ... knowing that mine are quite different.

We have heard people say "timing is of the essence". Generally speaking I think that timing in that sense is all there is. It is how things or moments fit together that implies that time is a flow like a point on a line mostly going forward. I think it is all an illusion. I think I could fit the moments together in an entirely different geometrical pattern rather than a line & it would make no difference.

As far as I can tell NOW is not a TIME thingy. As a point in time it is just a concept of time.
As far as I can tell "I" am a point of interest encountering parts of the whole Cosmos in moments. Who I am is the lesser part of those moments.

Maybe tetraks or higher dimensional lattices of points. My direct sense of time was uncealed during a morning za-zen to quell my thoughts.  My sense of time is involved with my own breathing & heart-beat.
