An Element of Water
There is no time – no point in the past to which we can return, no future to where we can go and hence, no present as it has already past. Only a continually unfolding process of awareness and experience, fabricated by our inheritance and projected experience.
As humans, we are blessed and gifted with the awareness of our awareness, providing the opportunity, perhaps our ethical responsibility, to be present and influential in our unfolding.
Without our awareness being suffused with felt care and attention, there is only entropy, a return to the timeless elements from which we arose.
