What does it mean to have eternal life?
Who or what has it? And what does eternal mean?
More practically, can we use the idea of the eternal as a mirror? Can we find what it points to in our first-person experience?
TIME IN RELATION TO WHAT I AM
When I look, I find I am capacity for the world as it appears to me.
I am what my field of experience happens within and as.
And relevant to this, I find that any sense of time happens within and as what I am.
Any sense of time and any mental representations happen within and as what I am.
It happens within and as what’s inherently timeless and free of time.
One of the definitions of eternal is that it has no beginning or end in time.
When I look, I can’t find any beginning or end in time outside of my field of experience. It all happens within and as what I am.
The eternal, that which has no beginning or end, is here and allows for a sense of time.
The eternal allows for time and takes the form of time.
