Living Vertical

A reading from:  “The Book of Secrets,” by Osho

“We divide time into three parts–past, present, future. That divison is false, absolutely false.  Time is really past and future.  The present is not part of time.  The present is part of eternity.  That which has passed is time; that which is to come is time.  That which is, is not time because it never passes–it is always here.  The now is always here.  It is always here! This now is eternal.  If you move from the past, you never move into the present.  From the past you always move into the future; there comes no moment which is present.  From the past you always move into the future.  From the present you can never move into the future.  From the present you go deeper and deeper, into more present and more present.  This is everlasting life. We may say it in this way: from past to future is time.  Time means you move on a plane, on a straight line.  Or we may call is horizontal. The moment you are in the present the dimension changes: you move verically—up or down, toward the height or toward the depth.  But then you never move horizontally…Live in eternity, not in time.”
