The painter has to wrestle with color, canvas and brushes, the sculptor with stone and chisel… yet, the creative act, their “vision” of what they are going to create, transcends time. It is the same for every manifestation of being. The experience of loving, of joy, of grasping truth does not occur in time, but in the here and now.

The here and now is eternity…

~ Erich Fromm, To Have or to Be, quoted in Michael E. Gerber’s Awakening the Entrepreneur Within
