Allen Watts poetry on the Universe

You are this universe
and you are creating it, at every moment

You see it starts now
It didn’t begin in the past, there was no past
You see, if the universe began in the past when that happened it was now
See, but it is now and the universe is still beginning now
and its trailing off like the wake of a ship from now
and that wake of the ship fades out and so does the past
you can look back there to explain things
but the explanation disappears
you will never find it there
Things are never explained by the past,
they are explained from what happens now, that creates the past
and it begins here
that’s the birth of responsibility
-Allen Watts
