I still remember the beginning of 2009. I was in the Himalayas. I didn't even know when it happened. *heh* Gorgeous mountains have that effect on time. I recently found this in my diary; it was a quote I scribbled - I have no recollection where I found it. But here it is, in all its vain glory:
"My true self was never born, never ages and never dies. Yet to say that I will live for eternity is not true either, as it is utterly beyond time. Perhaps the closest thing would be to say that there is just this utterly unchanging moment, yet this also fails to hit the mark as it could imply that it is static which it is not. It is beyond static and moving. Thus before the world was, I AM. Not before the world, I was, but before the world, I AM."
