Excerpt About Singularity

When there is Neither Time nor Space that Can Separate one Thing from Another

Because this deep and satisfying truth is independent in this way, and because it is what we are, when we know it we know that we are here in this place but also that we are there in that place. While we are there, the “there” is “here”; it is not over there. There” exists only in the language of time and space. In the language of truth, nothing is there”—it is all here.” I can only give you approximations that point us to the truth that is inclusive and beyond these concepts. There is not even a “here,” because “here” is a word that implies the concept of space. The point is that there is no “here” and no “there.” The unity we are discussing is absolute, for there is neither time nor space that can separate one thing from another, you from me. We are the same—not two expressions of the same, but the same. If the ultimate truth is such a unity, such singleness, which is actually a singularity, what will the impact be as we begin to be touched by it, as we begin to open to that truth, as we come closer to it? How will we feel its effect on us? Using the conventional language of time and space, we would say, “I am here and you are there.” But since neither of us feels any distance, it seems as though a magnet were pulling us toward each other. We feel that we are one, but we perceive two, and the result is that we both feel a force bringing us together. And the closer we are, the more powerfully we will feel it. Just like two magnets: When they are relatively far from each other, there is some attraction, but the closer they get, the more powerful the attraction becomes. What do the magnets want to do? They want to become so connected that they are one, for one is the truth. Twoness is ultimately appearance, not reality. More accurately, it is simply how reality appears, not what it fundamentally is.
