We are so used and trained to read the time which starts already in our childhood. Who doesn’t remember, as a 4 or 5 year old, we learned to read a clock. Either the digital for the younger generation, or the clock with the numbers 1 to 12. Not just learning the numbers, all the spaces between them, the minutes in an hour. Time was measured, divided in pieces to make it understandable. A linear way of measuring so to speak and the world got divided in time zones. Measured by the Son and its journey, as we experience it in our reality. At one point in time these zones were set and regarded as a world clock to enable humanity to stay in touch with each other. In ancient times there was no such thing as a clock, nor did our ancestors needed one.
Progression or evolution is debatable for a lot of scientist. Exploring the way we sometimes have one day short in a month, as we are accustomed to in the western world. Every culture had their own way of measuring time and dates. It depended on religion as well science when the new year would start. The more we got connected through the use of telex and telephony, the importance of adjusting to the different time zones became more important. Businesses were conducted within the different time zones. Some were going back in time, others forward. How effects this the global awareness as well our own awareness. Who is still able to work freely with time, because of the attunement with the inner sense of time.
Sometimes I feel time stands still and other times I have trouble to follow the speed it seems to take. Probably because of all the events that are taking place simultaneously all over our planet that creates this kind of confusion. Living in different time zones makes it almost impossible to wrap your head around it. Especially when all electricity has been damaging the systems as well the internet and phone. Which makes communication even harder to reach each other over the world. A lot of people are having travelled around the globe to find a new job, visit family or just having a holiday planned. It makes it so clear how much we are depending on the clock and timespan we live in.
During a meditation time seems to stand still, when my state of consciousness is taking me into a journey through visualization or inner silence. At times I just come back into this present material world as if I had been in a totally different dimension. Not even aware yet not asleep. Different energy as well experience. Like you can wake up from surgery undergoing anesthesia. One minute you are under, the next you open your eyes and back you are in your bed. At least that is my experience during my surgeries over the years. What also amazes me is the lack of memory of what has happened, as well the time span I have been under.
I don’t always recall my experiences and only the clock shows how much time I have been out of the normal daily consciousness. Reading time is then my link to this reality I live in. At times during meditation I can also travel through time and space. Several lifetimes have presented themselves, back in time. Not in a dream state, yet in an altered state of consciousness, where time and space are not linear yet it feels like a loop of some sort. As does the way it presents itself in my present lifetime. Cellular memory bank holding the memories of ancient and past experiences that still need to be addressed and healed in my day to day life.
To be in this now moment it is about reading the essence of time. Not going back, nor moving forward, yet never standing on hold. Always changing and in motion for we move through the day time into the night time. Yet being fully aware in the now moment will enable me to stay focused on the things at hand. To allow what comes up or is triggered in any way in order to create a new balance within. So this will enable me to use time as a compass. It shows me how the past will enfold itself in the now. By paying attention and allowing the experience it also has its impact on my future. For the constant change and movement from within is showing how time works counterpart as well forward.
Changing the past experiences into this now moment of living, it will change my future time as well. Time can be a tool to use, or a tool to get stuck with it. We all know how time can be perceived in different manners. Using my inner clock I never have to use a watch, for I am always in sync with the current time. I learned along the way to trust this ability, as I do trust the way it sometimes seems to move in different directions. Moving through time is a totally different way of experiencing the way I can interact with situations and people around me. It gives me a clear vision so to speak.
