Eternity As The End Of Time

Even as a young guy growing up, time always fascinated me. The whole nature of it's subjectiveness. A bunch of guys got together and constructed the idea of breaking the day down into recordable and definable moments, and for what? So business would run smoother? I used to think time and being "on time" was a sham but since my awakening through A Course In Miracles my experience of time is quite different. Here's Jesus;

"Time is your friend, if you leave it to the Holy Spirit to use. He needs but very little, to restore God’s Whole power to you. He Who transcends time FOR you, understands what it is for. Holiness lies not in time, but in Eternity. There never was an instant in which God's Son could lose his purity. His changeless state is beyond time, for his purity remains forever beyond attack, and without variability. Time stands still in his holiness, and changes not. And so it is no longer time at all. For, caught in the single instant of the eternal sanctity of God’s creation, it is transformed into forever."

Wow, nice. The workbook of the Course encourages the new student to practice this idea of "the Holy Instant". Spending an instant, opening your Mind and giving everything to God. It has already been remembered for you.

"Give the eternal instant, that eternity can be remembered for you, in that shining instant of perfect release. Offer the miracle of the holy instant through the Holy Spirit, and leave His giving it to you to Him. The Atonement is in time, but not FOR time. Being for YOU, it is for the eternal. What holds remembrance of God, cannot be bound by time. No more are you. For, unless God is bound, you cannot be. An instant, offered to the Holy Spirit, is offered to God on your behalf, and in that instant, you will awaken gently in Him."

As you awaken you see that time is actually already over, this dream is nothing but a memory of our return. Time will give you ever opportunity to see that while your that thought it brought your eventual demise, it was always only ever offering you eternity.

"In the blessed instant, you will let go all your past learning, and the Holy Spirit will quickly offer you the whole lesson of peace. What can take time, when ALL the obstacles to learning it have been removed? Truth is so far beyond time, that ALL of it happens at once. For as it was created one, so its oneness depends not on time at all.

Be not concerned with time, and fear not the instant of holiness which will remove ALL fear. For the instant of peace is eternal, because it is wholly without fear. It WILL come, being the lesson God gives you, through the Teacher HE has appointed, to translate time to eternity." ACIM ~ Time and Eternity
