Ending time

Realizing that I am a continuous process, which did not begin at conception and will not end when "I", a structure of convenience dies, allows me to go beyond my ego. If, in a flash of insight, I perceive the universe itself as a continuous process - to which I belong - in a state of perpetual emergence, then time is dissolved, be it cyclical or linear. I have reached timelessness. This elating experience makes everything simple, full of light, and I feel I have been freed. Clocks and watches no longer tick away my life with each passing second.

-- Andre van Lysebeth in his book 'Tantra: The cult of the feminine"
