Introduction

So many travelers have asked me to picture my experiences while taking down the text of Now is the time forever. What really is beyond words, is difficult to describe. Nevertheless, I will try.

For some time I am restless. Therefore, I try to be still and quiet. I close my eyes and invite my travel guide. I am not afraid to listen, nor am I anxious to hear. The conceptual understanding comes quickly and most of the time the words follow naturally. Before I open my eyes, I thank my guide. I write down what has been said, and I read what has been written. I only have to accept . . .

Now imagine it is you who is listening.
