ULLadu Narpadu - 88
« on: May 09, 2010, 12:04:46 PM »

Michael James writes about Verse 15 of ULLadu Narpadu:

Just as we imagine the physical dimensions of space in order to
create in our mind a conceptual image of a universe consisting of
separate objects of diverse forms, so we imagine he physical and
psychological dimensions of time in order not only to create in our mind a conceptual image of events and changes constantly occurring within that universe, but also more importantly to create the illusion that the thoughts we think and the consequent experiences we undergo
are formed and dissolved in a consecutive manner.  Without first imagining the basic dimensions of time and space, we cannot form
any image or thought in our mind, and hence these dimensions are inherent in each and every thought that we think.

We think that we perceive time and space outside ourself, and that we are just limited creatures who exist for a very short period within the vast duration of time and we occupy a very small part of the vase expanse of space.

Arunachala Siva.
