“Eternity, not time, expresses the thought of Life, and time is no part of eternity. One ceases in proportion as the other is recognized.” (Science and Health, page 468)
We exist in the eternal Now. We truly are not living a life that is bound in time—in hours, days, years, and the unfair material limits these concepts would put on us.
God is Life and He is eternal. He is also kind. True existence is the expression of God’s own being and it is neither advanced by time nor lost in it. God’s presence is active completeness, revealing itself without measure, end, or restriction.
It certainly does seem as if everything in our lives is influenced by time. It appears to govern our lives in the day to day and over the course of a lifetime. But, we can begin to gain a more expansive sense of life as we recognize eternity. As we consciously replace a belief in time with a trust in the infinite forever, in God as Life that is boundless and timeless, we open up ourselves to better moments, brighter days, and time loses its hold on us.
We may not completely break loose of time in this moment, but an awareness of its flimsy pretensions allows us to transcend its hold on us and to live more freely, joyfully, and still with a precision and rightness that God’s Love and control always provides.
