"When do we start your study?" you are asking me. We are starting now. We are finishing now. You are Disciple, Adept and Master now.
You are understanding that Chronos is not really as he is appearing in the minds of humanity. They are following Chronos down the straight path that he is desiring. They are not experiencing the then, only the now. They are not seeing the will, only the has. We are outside that narrow path; we are enlightened.
We are existing in the Now. There are no beginnings or endings; our Now is spreading all of time before us as a tapestry. In the Now, you are studying with me. In the Now, you are Disciple, Adept and Master - all three.
