There is a huge paradox, that it may take almost an entire lifetime to fall into the understanding.
And when one reaches that, one may think to oneself, “Oh! Only a few short years left to enjoy this perfection.”
And yet, then, one laughs at such a frivolous notion.
For in falling into that, into the understanding, one falls into the eternal holy moment, which is timeless and thus free.
Perfection does not sustain itself via time. There is no need of that. The moment is complete in itself. This is always timelessly so.
