The Spaceless Aspects of Self

Apart from us where is time and space? If we are bodies we are involved in time and space, but are we? WE are one and identical Now, then, forever, here, there, and everywhere. Therefore we, timeless and spaceless Beings, alone are. . . What I say is that Self is here and now, and alone.

That interesting thought is from the Spiritual Teachings of Vedantist Ramana Maharshi. Time is certainly an idea construction of the self, and the spacelessness within that time is filled with other idea constructions, which fill that space, although we are not aware of them.

The realization that the mind is eternal, and in one moment the past, present and future exist at once is what we seek to experience in physical form. We create a variety of experiences through our beliefs, and each one brings us closer to our ultimate reality, which lies in the heart of each daily experience. All ideas exist within us from the beginning of the non-beginning, and these ideas manifest as we need them.
