Saint Francis of Assisi said "What we are looking for is what is looking".
Look right NOW at what is actually appearing NOW.


Saint Francis of Assisi doesn't learn astronomy. If he does, he should knows, stars are million light years away from us.

When are the stars seen?
Doesn't seeing happen presently?
Saint Francis of Asissi did not eat from the tree of knowledge.

Direct experience will not inform you about 'a million light years'.

Seeing and happening can be two different things.

For example, a star at 27 light years goes supernova. We see it happen now. But actually it happen 27 years ago. This is known fact.

Light and distance can deceive what we actually see.

Another example is mirror. Mirror reflect light. Therefore, mirror is another medium of illusion. Magician use mirrors to create illusions. Technically what you see in the mirror IS/WAS the past. But because of split seconds differences, you couldnt tell the differences.

No, but mathematics and physics laws inform us more things than a "million light years."

You will never see or hear the past.
You see presently...you see what is presenting itself.

Do you know what direct experience is?

Direct experience or immediate experience generally denotes experience gained through immediate sense perception. Many philosophical systems hold that knowledge or skills gained through direct experience cannot be fully put into words.

I would say that 'direct experience' is eating from the tree of life.

This thread is about God and the concept of time.........................the CONCEPT of time.
It is said that to enter the Kingdom one has to become as a child...............what does a child not have that you have?
Concepts, ideas, words, language, numbers....knowledge.

A child sees and hears...............didn't Jesus come to teach the blind to see and the deaf to hear?

What appears can be deceptive............but what is seeing is not!
That is why 'We are looking for what is looking' is such a great pointer.

Look to what is seeing instead of 'what is seen'............turn around and look to what is looking because That is not a lie.

False. You can see YouTube, Cinema, TV, etc.. Anytime you want. Nothing on those medium show the present.

Hitler's speech on History Channels is not the present time, yet I can see it now.

So does looking at night sky, mirror and experiencing light.

Our eyes work with light.

Yet light can bend, reflect and even absorbed by dark hole.

What you look cannot save a person from your blind spot, which is why you are regulated to look at your car side mirrors often.

You see a magician cut a person into two. Does that mean he murdered and ressurect that person?

Don't be silly.

We all know it just illusion.

The great pointer is knowing which one is illusion and which one is real.

Listen up.................WHAT APPEARS CAN BE DECEPTIVE.
However, what is SEEING is not.

'We are looking for what is LOOKING'.

What is said to be ALL SEEING and all knowing?

That which is appearing in sight is constantly different...therefore it is transitory.
That which is seeing is constant, never changing.........therefore it is more real than that which is transitory.

Is it wise to believe in things that may not be true?
Is there anything that you know for sure that does not need any belief whatsoever?

Explain "what is LOOKING"

All Seeing and All Knowing is the attribute of God.

We are not God.

We have limited perceptions and blind spot. We have complex mind, yet our mind can "see" hallucinations. Things that are not real. Our eyes are just wire to plug our brain with light spectrum. It just how you work out what you look. If you believe a magician can raise a body out of thin air, then that is what you see. But if you do research on how they do it, you would know what you see is only an optical deception. They are not real.

You mean believe in magician's power because the eye see so?

Even Jesus wouldn't teach you to believe in such things.

The pointer is not seeing, but knowing.

You can see what is appearing...these words are appearing. What is seeing these words?
What is 'looking' out of eyes will never be seen....but is always present....yet gets overlooked.

By your statement, "What is 'looking' out of eyes will never be seen....but it is always present." I assume you agree not to trust everything you see.

Knowing the backstage behind the magician inform you the seeing on stage is deceptive in nature. You don't have to see the backstage operation to know. You can read from the magician's confession to know the truth.

Just like working with telescope and mathematics inform you what you see every nights is not always true. Not every stars you see now still exists.
