It was very interesting talking with Denny, at Frontier Park, about the aborigines in Austrailia, and about how they have no concept of time. We, who are so-called modern, think that we are sophisticated while we endlessly lie caged within the dynamics of limited time; but the poverty may truly be ours. Time is fragmentary and very limited, if that is all the mind functions with; a modern mind can seem to be very intelligent; but if that intelligence is merely concerned with fragmentary components in time... then such intelligence is, by necessity, very superficial.

This ache for the other shore
You are seeking, asking, longing, to walk on the other shore. The other shore implies that there is this shore, and from this shore to get to the other shore there is space and time. That is what is holding you and bringing about this ache for the other shore. That is the real problem - time that divides, space that separates, the time necessary to get there and the space that is the distance between this and that. This wants to become that, and finds it is not possible because of the distance and the time it takes to cover that distance. In this there is not only comparison but also measurement, and a mind that is capable of measuring is capable also of illusion. This division of space and time between this and that is the way of the mind, which is thought. Do you know, when there is love, space disappears and time disappears? It is only when thought and desire come in that there is a gap of time to be bridged. When you see this, this is that.
