Eternity isn’t some later time.
Eternity isn’t even a long time.
Eternity has nothing to do with time.
Eternity is that dimension of here and now that all thinking in temporal times cuts off.
And if you don’t get it here, you won’t get it anywhere…the experience of eternity right here and now, in all things, whether thought of as good or as evil, is the function of life.
This is it.
~ Joseph Campell
