Time is not a linear event, and how to break the walls the separate us from the Inner World
The unknown, the occult, hides within self-imposed barriers. These self-imposed barriers are our beliefs; beliefs that are so powerful that we sometimes call them facts.
A particular fact for example is the notion that time is a sequential affair. That is, we all take it for granted that time extends in a linear fashion, where there is a past and a future, with us standing in the middle… A middle which we call the present moment. This is a fact, we believe.
What if we were to take a radical new approach to time?
What if we were to consider time as not existing in a linear sequence but as existing all at once?
Since time for us is so directly linked to space, but if we conceptualized reality as existing all at once within one point?
For a moment, try to conceptualize the idea that all things in the present, past, and future are existing now, all at once.
Any action that you took in the past to arrive at this present moment, and any future consequence from the actions of this present moment, exist now.
As a fun exercise, try to imagine time in this fashion now. Perhaps the next time that you go for a light stroll around the park, try to spend that time believing that there is only a now moment; that all action is happening now, whether that action seemed to be something in the past, or may seem to be something that you might do in the future. Imagine that all action and all reality that ever was or ever will be is happening now.
If we are good visualizers, we can begin to see time in a totally different way. Seeing time in this fashion, it becomes a lot harder to pin ‘reality’ down in our minds, and things can get a bit chaotic.
We can no longer use a linear sequence to try and pin down the course of our actions, and it becomes much harder to separate that which is within the personal subjective experience and that which is physical action, or physically present now. Time experienced in this way becomes much more a matter of intensities and far less a matter of self-imposed belief structures.
If this exercise is carried out long enough, the differentiation between the physical and the imagined becomes far more difficult; the real and the imagined become one.
While this may be chaotic at first, it can also provide an incredibly powerful way to allow a person to begin to understand the manifestational order of all reality, and how it is that the inner creates the outer.
