Time does not have to be linear for anything to be true
Time is neither necessarily linear nor cyclical
Time s perceived
Time is rhythm

Buddhism does not believe in an enlightenment that will never fall back down
Enlightenment returns you to that origin
Where that flow naturally moves
Rising up and falling down
Each is implies the other

It's my personal understanding that Buddhism is about moving absolutely nowhere, simply existing in the moment. There is no goal. That's why it attracts me, just exist in nothing and be peaceful.

I'm not entirely sure where the idea of reincarnation and ascension came from, but Buddhist meditation in itself is simply about existing in the moment, and the zen practice is about living in the moment as much as possible.

You have to have at least 25 posts and be a member for 14 days to have full access to all the functions of the forum...

Quoting "The Rules" found here:

"Upon signing up to the forum you are able to post threads and reply to the threads. However, newbie users do not have the ability to edit their profile, add an avatar, post links or have a signature. After being a member for 14 days and making 25 posts you will have access to all the normal functions of the forum. To know if you are a newbie user it will say so underneath your user name."
