Being connected to the Present and Future at the same time

Found this quote tonight and wanted to share it

..."in the "fourth dimension, in which present and future can co-exist... we can experience time as both linear and circular, if we can be both one and One, then practical applications to all aspects of our lives ensue"

Time Shifting, by Stephan Rechtschaffen, M.D. (Doubleday, 1996)

The quote reminds me of some of Dyer's teachings about "BEING" the goal rather than striving for it. Being the goal is a lot like being connected to the future while operating in the present with a "knowing" that success or achievement was already possible...even before results are present in the physical world of form.

Your thoughts?

"Being the goal is a lot like being connected to the future while operating in the present with a "knowing" that success or achievement was already possible...even before results are present in the physical world of form."

I don't think this is what Wayne had in mind when he is saying "Being the goal." In a goal oriented society, we make a lot of appointments, even have a book just for them, and even a calendar to mark them on as well. If we didn't make any appointment, we would never experience dissapointment.

Being the goal is simply being in the moment - where no past nor future exists. The future is based on a past that never was. Being in the moment - in the now - in the holy instant - is being in the Truth of who we are. It is the experience of eternity, our reality.

Did you ever look at "goal-setting" as a way of avoiding what you do not wish to see within yourself? Perhaps your truth? Perhaps the fact that you are unhappy with who you think you are, but decide to continue on this way because you make money at it or people expect it of you.

Ever just go with the flow of things and marvel at how well they turn out? Sooner or later, we all discover that we are not in charge here - that we are fighting against what is trying to be presented to us - that we fear change of any sort.

On this path of no ending, we are "moving" towards our truth - our Higher Power - God. The purpose of the path is just that - no other reason. However we try and try to place reasons as to why we are here and what we are supposed to be doing here - instead of simply following the path. If you see an obstacle on the path, walk through it for it is but an illusion.
You will accomplish on your path what every one else will accomplish on their path - God.

Namaste - Ron

I understand what you are saying Ron and I agree in part, if not in whole, the only thing that gives me doubt is the problem that I know I really want something, does this not then become a goal?

Won't making it a goal and having a deadline help me reach it?
