Unfortunately, our understanding is so intellectual. When we say “covers everything”, our understanding of this remains bound in terms of space, so the other side, time, is discontinuous. The idea of time which is discontinuous, or the momentary idea of time, is the same as the space-bound idea. “One point in wide space includes everything.” Your understanding is liable to be like this. But actually, when we say “includes everything,” it means the past and future too.  ------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-08-24-A as found on Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on - from there links to much more.
