Tenets of Being pt2 You are the witness, not the projection What time is the present moment? You can only know “I” from the past Thinking is not the source of consciousness You cannot be human and infallible Cognition requires past You are life, life is not yours The creator is creation The Now moment can never be lost Titles create entitlement You have no say in death, only life Truth is the source of both right and wrong Reality is perceived thru 2 states: object (identity)/ subject (perceiver) Being is realizing the line between you and time Who you think you are doesn’t exist
