View Full Version : hesse's disdain for words

for hesse, rejecting the idea of conventional time in favor of "all is now" seems to be the key to getting past teachings and recognizing the oneness that always is, always has been, always will be. does anyone have any more ideas on hesse's concept of time? i thought he did a nice job of explaining this often times abstracted thing in a concrete way; for instance, hesse calling "sometimes" a metaphor in the last chapter. such a simple statement, but so all-encompassing.
