A New World
We can learn to open to a greater time in which we recognize that our aliveness right now is conferred by an unbounded future toward which we are sailing. But first we need to recognize that we lose our connection to this infinite dimension of time when we allow our anxieties and desires to determine what we expect and thus what we see.
We can open to a greater space–not merely an abstract emptiness which steps aside for things—by engaging the quality of accommodating openness which space confers on everything that arises.
We can draw upon a greater knowledge, in place of the recycled currency of past experience, and welcome the undisclosed presence of the yet to be.
In the vast ocean of an unknown future, when we turn our attention in that direction, we can discover the aliveness of time revealing the uncurtailed openness of space—like the eternally present blue sky unstained by passing clouds. Then the seemingly insurmountable problems that confront our world may appear in a new light. No longer seeing our world as a realm of hungry ghosts devouring the soul of humanity, we will recognize the irrelevance of all that does not serve our present aliveness. Only then will we take our first step into a new world, which has waited too long for us to show up.
