It is well known in mystical theology that God is not an entity, a thing that can be measured; an old man in the sky. But there remains confusion regarding the idea of God when we bring time into the picture. Clearly, time is only relevant in our reality with regard the universe, but there is no coherent time before the beginning, so to speak, of this creation. So God transcends time, is timeless, eternal, beyond time. It has no “existence” as such, no “thingness.” Yet, it is ever-present, which means that it is always “here.” Indeed, there is only here and now, only this unfolding moment, and this is the closest we can come to Knowing the Presence.
