“Time is NOW and only now. There is no past or future. Time marks the present in the same way that an animal marks his or her environment. Time also marks space, from our perspective impacting concepts, constructs and spatial relationships. For many of us, unfortunately, it’s like a little rascal always nipping at our heels. I propose instead we choose to see it differently.
The NOW is where power resides. Therefore, carpe diem ~ seize the day, a really sound piece of advice. Though we tend to view time as a measure of what is past or yet to come, it is really just a measure of where we are now as we do whatever it is that we are doing.
How can we use time to our advantage? By giving it as little attention as possible. Therefore, don’t be bound by the ticking of a clock, your calendar, electronic devices or anything else that is theoretically pulling you towards the future. Instead, just BE. Again, there is only the eternal NOW.
Time’s mission actually is to keep us in the present. But how you ask? By providing us with a false sense of the past and a shadow impression of the future, in other words, by constantly reminding us that all we really have is right here, right now ~ in the moment.
There are endless simultaneous NOWS, my friends. Within each, individual events are recorded, maintaining themselves in perpetuity. If you know that each event never loses its punch because it is, just as you are in this so-called moment, you will get what you need to know about time and how it works.
I suggest we view time as an infinite number of interlocking NOWS, each separate yet always in the process of morphing into the one that appears to immediately precede and follow it. Events are found inside, wrapping themselves around each other like a series of Russian dolls. What seems to us as aging is nothing more than the same dynamic at work.
It may also be helpful to think of time as a wheel, full of individual cogs, each representing a particular NOW. Those of us in the Astral can focus on any one of them or on any combination thereof ~ if we so choose. That is how we are able to ‘take a look’ at things ~ by scrolling through so-called past or future events. By the way, all happenstances, be they of great import such as a volcanic explosion or almost imperceptible like a single leaf falling from a tree, have equal weight.
Others before me have exhorted you to be in the moment. Now I would like to follow suit. Make each NOW, therefore, a very conscious event whose purpose it is to entwine the various strands of our lives, including the genetic, knitting them up. Who knew life was about producing handicrafts? Well, it is. We literally spin our own webs!
For many, time implies movement. The truth is, however, that time by itself goes nowhere. It only seems to. Clocks are just ornaments, pretty things to look at ‘from time to time.’
That a year has an end is something that cannot be. Nevertheless, each acts as a marker and in that sense is to be reflected upon. As a result, every December 31st we have an opportunity to look at the choices we’ve made during the previous twelve months and think about what we want to do now as we appear to go forward. However, as you already know there is no forward, only other versions of the NOW.
To reiterate, life is a series of interconnected NOWS, all lined up next to each other in an infinite perspective of endless horizons. Time itself is a fantasy. What we perceive of as time passing can be attributed to shifts in our own vibratory rates, enabling us to become associated with and participate in any number of different events ~ as we see fit.
Many of us were brought up believing that time is something that we can either make good use of or waste. But is that really the case? No. There is no such thing as wasting time even though the continual comings and goings of the Sun and Moon sometimes tend to support that impression. Everything we do has both purpose and reason.
Time was conceived of to help us deal with change, or rather the fear of change. Transition, what we call death, frees us all from bonds, including those having to do with the illusion of time. Eternal is not just a word, it is emblematic of how things work.
Again there is no time. It is merely a concept. We are all time-less. If you will, think on that. Also, notice the extent to which time and our references to it tend to permeate our thinking.” ~ Rodolfo Valentino
