And I entered the "timeless total present" which Eckehart describes as the way God experiences time: all is now.

It's interesting that my coming across this Eckehart-Sankara explanation was held back until after I finished "Valis" - in which (without being able to identify what happened) I depict this Moksa.

The fact that in the writing of "Valis" I suddenly picked "The Friends of God" - which is correct - shows divine inspiration for the book for sure.

Although this (my experience) is above any given religious system (as Sankara) pointed out, my acosmism (maya) points to Sankara - for me, a Sankaran xtianity, which may be the real explanation: a melding of xtianity and Sankarism.

But my contribution is seeing the rational (Christ or God) breaking through into the irrational [1] in terms of this acosmic pantheism.

[1] and overpowering it - Spinoza to the contrary.

Thus I say, "There is only one rational reality: God inside us/outside: all else is irrational."
