As the earth turns we see people rise up and people lie down. It's all happening because it happened before and will continue to happen. The past, the present, and the future are all one. They happen simultaneously. Yet we see it occur one day, one moment at a time, as the earth turns. Is it preordained? Yes. Do we still have choices? Yes. How can the two exist together? Because all time is present time. All of time is contained in light. Light travels at a speed that is impossible to reach in this realm. Light is what holds the universe, all of all, together. If light does not pass through something, that thing would cease to exist. If it ceased to exist then it never would have been in the first place because all time is present. It is one picture. All of all is but One. Yet we are limited as to what we see because we see it only as the earth turns. The only way to see, or even begin to grasp the whole picture, is to step into that world of Light ... as the earth turns.
The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1
