Simple Commentaries on Neo-Sutra 1: Now
On the First Couplet

First, form. We find ourselves at first in form. In the duality of couplets. And the first couplet is in a mirror image of itself. Beginning with Now. No other beginning will do, of course. Any other beginning would be a lie. The past is just a memory and the future but a thought at best, a worry at its worst. The only truth is now. And once so simply stated, the next inevitable truth is only now. And on and on ad infinitum within this opening couplet. There one finds oneself, beginning with now. Staying in now. Only in now. One needs to leave the past and future behind completely, rid the form of any thought of them at all. Start Now. And stay now.
