You’ve got forever
This mornings thought was more of a message. Time has been the theme recurring in mind of late and today the message is to relax about it.
In my recently released book, Him & Me, I related the story of the Voice and the way it communicates in relation to life and spirituality questions. That’s what, You’ve got forever, is; an answer to the question of time and the often-worrying role it plays in peoples lives.
The answer was clear and specific: Stop worrying about time. You’ve got forever. You are timeless beings, mistakenly believing yourselves to be bodies.
In this world everything is finite. Everything has a beginning and everything has an end. Birth – death, start – finish, full – empty and so on and so forth. That’s how the world is, time is egos measuring device.
Time will cease to exist when the last child of Creation reunites with its Reality. In that instant there will no longer exist the need for ego or its rickety measuring devices.
Look at what time measures. It measures the line between a memory; the past and the future; a thing imagined, both of which exist only in mind. Both of which are not real, making time a phantasm.
Timelessness can be experienced here. In deep meditation time disappears. It stops to exist. In deep mediation there is no time.
But one doesn’t need to practice meditation in order to experience the vagaries and unreality of time. Think about an experience when you remembered an occurrence, some event that happened, and thought,“Wow, was that really that long ago? Where has the time gone?” Where indeed? Nowhere. It was never there in the first place.
Ask any old person about life and time, and the answer will invariably be that time flies.
The moment it is understood that time has no impact, whatsoever; on you the Infinite, you the Inextinguishable, is the moment time will stop being seen as the cruel master, herding humanity along the mean streets paved with jagged rocks and sorrow, on the way to certain death.
You have forever.
