It is very important to see your life not only from the narrow view of your egoistic telescope but also from the broad view of the universal telescope called egolessness.
This is why we have to practice. Right in the middle of the stream of time, we have to open our eyes there and see the total picture of time.
Through spiritual practice we can go beyond our egoistic point of view. We can touch the core of time, see the whole world in a moment, and understand time in deep relationship with all beings.
