People are fascinated with the origin of things.
“When did the universe begin?” They ask.
“Where do I come from?”
The answers to questions like these are obvious once you get a little clarity.
When did the universe begin?
Right now (if at all).
A clear mind sees that any past is just a thought.
There’s no proof for the validity of any thought other than another thought,
and even that thought is gone, and then
the thought “That thought is gone” itself is gone.
There is only now, and even “now” ”is a thought of the past.
Actually, the universe has no beginning and no end.
It’s constantly beginning, and it’s always over.
Where do I come from?
From this very thought.
Oops : Now I’m gone.
