Everything arises in the present, within this clear and pure awareness – always new, always different, always fresh.
In my immediate experience, there is no continuity. There is only what arises in the present – nothing else exists. There is only a fluid, always changing now.
At the same time, I see that to help myself orient and become effective in the world, I can create a concept of continuity. When I come to myself as space & awareness within which phenomena arise in the present, this tool becomes very useful for orienting in the world. I don’t mistake it for my present experience, but take it for what it is – a creation and a tool. It only has a very practical use, nothing more.
