What is time? Have you ever gone camping for an extended period of time? Like 2 weeks or more. Then, when you go back to work people will be talking about something that happened in the news, and you're wondering, "What are you talking about? I haven't heard anything about that." It's because your personal sense of time has been on vacation. The outer experiences of the Social Collective Conscious were not allowed to infringe upon the interactions your soul had with the forests, rivers, and mountains. Your senses are still remembering and luxuriating in the chirping of birds, crickets, and the babbling of streams. Hearing all that "bad" news really does get to be a shock to the systems (the various dimensions of reality that compromise the human existence). And because we grudgingly (?) go everyday to our 9-5 jobs, eventually, the sweet, soulful remembrances of the wilderness fades away.
Expanding further on this camping experience, imagine that in the near future you will be permanently out there camping! What would that be like? You could always be doing that which your soul longs to be doing. Now, think and feel, if you could be doing that which you would really like to be doing as an expression of your soul, what would that be? You would not have to worry about, "well it's Monday, and I hafta go to work now". What would that be like? Not compromising your soul's interests by laboring for a few dollars at a corporate job.
Try to envision such a situation extending to other aspects of your life. If you were truthfully aware of what your soul needs and longs for, you would be able to focus upon and fulfill those desires and passions. Ideally, you might feel spiritually complete. "I am being that which my inner soul and God has envisioned what I may be doing". Imagine still that you are beyond mere survivalism. Others in your community share the same experiences of soulful intent. Life is not a struggle. It is a blessed experience where others share your love and concern for each other's welfare and security, and the whole idea of fear does not exist. All of your physical needs are taken care of because each person is doing that which they feel compelled to do to fulfill the longings of their soul. Everyone is glad to be of service, mutually helping each other feel fulfilled, cared for, and needed within their community. And yet, individualism and diversity are welcome, because each separate perception is needed to supply all the various wants and needs of the community. Wouldn't that be fantastic!
So, I ask you, if our socially agreed upon concepts of time were no more would you want to live in such a world? Or, would you rather come home from work, put your feet upon the coffee table, crack open a beer, and hypnotically numb yourself by watching "American Idol" on TV? Which is it?
What if I told you that the previous scenario that I'm describing is what the Mayans were describing with their 2012 predictions of Time Coming to an End? What if after 2012 was to be meant as the Time of Living With The Soul? Forget your credit cards...and your cell phones, too. Such an event does not sound apocalyptic to me...it sounds wonderful! Please don't tell me that your desire to be entertained by a TV is greater than your desire to fulfill the deep, inner longings of your soul. To be the spiritual expression of yourself that you truly desire and dream of being.
Does this scenario sound too far-fetched and impractical?
Since 2008, I've noticed that many celestial events have been conspiring to bring about such a reality. Now, remember, you are not living my dream...you are living your dream! But to accomplish this, you need to wake up from your socially imposed slumbers of denying your truer self, and discovering who you truly are. Who are you? Every day, do your self a favor and ask your self, "who am I, truly?"
For instance, when you see yourself in the mirror each day, do you truly love the image that you see there of your self? Or, do you analyze, criticize, and blame yourself for being too fat, having blackheads and zits, and wondering why you are bald? All of that self-negativity is just a start. How often do you criticize your self for not having a better job, not making enough money, or even feeling unloved, and unloving to those close to you? "I would be so much happier if I had a new (girlfriend, boyfriend, lover, wife, husband, or job...you fill in the blank!)." Or, do you accept who you are? "Yeah, I was quite mean to the wife the other day. I wonder what I could do to get her to realize just how much I truly regret hurting her feelings the other day?" Believe it or not, I actually spend a lot of time wondering what I could be doing to improve the physical lives and emotional well-being of my family, and even my co-workers! I feel good about who I am, and I just wish I could get others to feel emotionally and physically better about themselves.
However, I've been around long enough (almost 62 years) to know that I can only change myself. So, just like the character "Phil" in the movie Groundhog's Day, I do what I can to change myself, and act as a template of inspiration for others to do likewise. And believe me, it is a struggle. Undoing years of engrained socialization is challenging, but the end result of finding out who I am is so freeing, liberating, and exhilirating! My job, for instance, demands that I stand a lot waiting on customers, and when they think that I'm bored...how wrong they are. If only they could be in the space that I am occupying...where I'm at is full of Light, Love, Eternal Stillness, and visions of a reality that are entirely different from that which others occupy their time and actions. "Is this a quality item? Do you know where I get one cheaper?" I laugh because they take their trivial concerns so seriously, ha!
"But how does one get to such a self awareness?" Thank you, thank you, for understanding such an important question to ask for one's self-understanding. Believe me, this is not an easy task for the timid and faint-of-heart. First, you need to get out of the social perspective that others insist that you share with them. Ask your self, for instance, why do people drink alcohol and do drugs? (At this point, I really want you to believe that alcohol and drugs are a crutch! By releasing yourself from socially imposed restrictions, putting your self in the NOW MOMENT, and just breathing, you can realize the creative, innocent moment of being child-like, where endless possibilities exist. As Roger Waters of the rock-group Pink Floyd once stated, "with drugs I could fly, but they took away my wings." Just breathe, be in the eternal now ment, and you will fly. ) Intuitively, we all sense a need to alter our awareness and experience a reality that is denied to us otherwise. Our socially entrained perceptions of reality are so limited. They are of the 3rd dimension, where everything must be seen, touched, tasted, heard, and measureable through time, space, and physical form. But there is so much more!
