The Course of Miracles p7-8 TIME
We think of time as linear, moving along a horizontal axis building experiences and events. I think of the timeline in elementary school that puts dates, pictures, and events in an orderly fashion.
God does not need this timeline, nor does it exist, except in mans version of life. Jesus is the Son of God and so can see time as a vertical connection to God. He is also a Brother to man and can see the horizontal connection. People will learn their lessons and build their connections to God (experience their revelations) but in a horizontal timeline. Jesus recognizes the equality of brothers and can see when a miracle could provide a glimpse of the vertical timeline, thus bringing man closer to God in a quicker (human) time.
