Time is not an absolute reality but an aspect of our consciousness.
Anger is like a storm rising up from the bottom of your consciousness. When you feel it coming, turn your focus to your breath.

Anna Deavere Smith
Everything in the Universe, throughout all its kingdoms, is conscious: i.e., endowed with a consciousness of its own kind and on its own plane of perception.
Consciousness, when it's unburdened by the body, is something that's ecstatic; we use the mind to watch the mind, and that's the meta-nature of our consciousness; we know that we know that we know, and that's such a delicious feeling, but when it's unburdened by biology and entropy, it becomes more than delicious: it becomes magical.
