what comes also goes. Hence we are not interested in acquiring material things or spiritual experiences. Our focus is on that which is ever present. That Self cannot be an object of experience outside of us. We are that Self and to abide in that is the peace that passeth all understanding.
What is to be newly gained in the future cannot be real or permanent. The Eternal Reality must be present at all times. Therefore, it must be here and now. Hence it must be recognized here and now.
