I think in your response you contribute something very valuable to any
dialogue about temporality and its relation to "Being." Time is such a
culture-bound experience. Therefore, relative to any discussion about
"Being" it may not be so useful to draw from temporal assumptions, but
rather, as you do, to focus on the phenomenon of change itself, which
places the experience of "Being" where it belongs----as an experience to
be experienced by the experiencer, and not as a static definition or
representation or as a description of the phenomenon (as in formulas and
Feeling being in one's gonads or ovaries as the case may be, is likely
more to the point. To put it another way, for me its like the difference
between describing meditation and being in the process of meditating.
There is a major psychophysiological difference between these two.
Personally I prefer the latter to the former, else I fail to "get" the
experience of meditating and miss a learning oportunity of healing and
wholeness because I remain in my head. I think you said this in another
way when you wrote about this:
