Yes! The eternal intersects the temporal; the changeless is field in which change occurs- they are inseparable. There is great peace in this truth. No where to go- what is of greatest value is right here- always.
Thanks Colleen, your comment reminds me of 'The Symbolism of the Cross' by Rene Guenon. In brief, the Vertical(eternal) intersects the Horizontal(temporal) - as you say, 'always, already!'
Nice pointing going on here, thank you Tom and Colleen!
