What time is ours? Only the present, of course. Events may occur in the past, but are only ever perceived by our mind in the present. The past and the future are real, but can never be experienced. The only way to access the past is bring it into the present, re-present it. The festivals are introduced: “These are My times, the times of God, which you shall call out as holy.” In our lived consciousness, past and the future are theoretical, ‘times of God’. Festivals, religious law, and cultural memory can also stay in the theoretical realm. But using the fixed calendar as opportunities to re-enact old memories, re-embody and re-interpret old thoughts, they truly become present, become holy.
