Last week I mentioned Neville Goddard and the part that imagination plays in our lives. This week, I am going to take a look at the subject of “time” itself. What does it really mean in our lives? We think of time as being linear. If we are putting photos in an album ( probably an outdated concept) we arrange them chronologically therefore authenticating linear time. As we become more enlightened and aware, we begin reading books that indicate that time is actually non-existent. Time only serves to get us places we need to be in relation to where we do not need to be. Time is all only one time - NOW.
If indeed, all of time is NOW as Elkhart Tolle and others have intimated, we view our lives from a much different perspective. Let’s look at time in the way that scientists are beginning to educate us. Time is a human construct. As I said before. ... it is relative to something else so we can place ourselves at a certain place. We refer to last year or 15 years ago to give us a frame of reference in regards to something else. Otherwise, time simply unfolds. If indeed, time simply unfolds, then it stands to reason that everything that can come from that unfolding is already there.
I once shared that there was an occurrence that can illustrate this... one day on a constantly traveled route, o realized that a building housing two businesses was almost completed and ready to open. I had never seen the building! It did not appear overnight. It had obviously been under construction for several months, but it had just this day slipped into my awareness. It existed, but because I was not aware of it, I did not even see it. Time, likewise, is not easy to define. When we are waiting for something to happen in our lives, we can feel like time literally stands still and does not move. If, on the other hand, there is a deadline for a project completion it sometimes seems that days literally disappear in the speed with which that day shows up.
There are times in my life where the movement through time is so desired that we immobilize it in our haste. The secret, if there is one, is to simply relax into it, knowing that Divine time will be the order of the day. It always will be. Know that what you have fixed upon is coming and it will be here when “the time is right.”
