Excerpt About Pattern
The Flow of PatternsYou are told to do a certain practice that will lead to a certain realization. However, being told to do a certain practice is actually simply the instantaneous flow of reality, like the instant-by-instant flow of light and sound in a movie. Whether you do the practice or not, what happens is also the instantaneous flow. If you do the practice, then that flow has a pattern. The flow deepens and changes. These phenomena appear to happen in time, but actually we don’t need our assumptions about time to see the flow and harmony in the pattern of what happens. Logically, you could see that flow happens without time.
