    Smile What is Now?

    Why are you alive now?
    Because you lived in your own time.

    So what is now?

    Now is the static existence that the future swirls past.

    Better question: what are you talking about?

    we continue living in our own time until we die in our time... all we have to do is realize that the time is ours and put a stamp on it

    there is no time but the present, after all... we never live in the future or the past

    Now is before you lived in your own time.

    That means nothing.

    I'm not a fan of hiding ideas in tricky jargon. If you have an idea to express, say it, explain it. And if you can't explain it, which is often the case with mysticism, then explain why you can't explain it. This "I am now. You are what. Why is where." stuff is just aggravating. Everyone pretends to know what everyone else is talking about but no one really knows because no one is actually saying anything substantive. It's such a yawn-fest. This is not Zen, even though it tries to be.

    So. What are we talking about again? Time? Reality? Ego? Experience? Can we try having a sensible discussion?
