Time has no hold over what is true. That’s the basic teaching.
Buddhadharma asks us to set aside fleeting and fairweather truths, and to turn around and look at what remains when we’re no longer grasping at a single thing.
During meditation, if something’s marked by dissatisfaction, we forget it. If something’s marked by impermanence, we forget it. If something’s marked by not-self, we forget it. Then we remember that we’re awake and unbound, that everyone’s awake and unbound.
