TIME DOES NOT EXIST

The ticking of Time is a hard thing to give up. But you won't have to. In fact, living here in temporal reality, you can't. As long as you perceive this world, you will perceive Time. But it is an illusion, none-the-less.

The ticking of Time is a hard thing to give up. But you won't have to. In fact, living here in temporal reality, you can't. As long as you perceive this world, you will perceive Time. But it is an illusion, none-the-less.

      This is where See Do always began. And during our sessions, anytime one of my questions would reveal that I wasn’t quite getting it, this is where we would return. See Do would simply go back and we’d review it all one more time.

           He’d start: “Time does not exist. But Time is all there is.” On the surface, this is a completely absurd contradiction. But as I hope you will see, there is sense to it.

           It may seem odd to begin with the such difficult concepts, but this will form the foundation of understanding defining the difference between our temporal reality and what I call See Do reality (if you have a better name, please let me know.)

           On the one hand, the idea that Time does not exist is obvious. Time has no substance, no weight, no mass, no physical existence in our temporal reality what-so-ever. It is just an idea. It is the thing that gives us before and after, the arrow of Time that our conscious existence moves along.

           But on the other hand, this conundrum is not what See Do was talking about. What he was talking about is far more fundamental to everything that follows.

           I’ll try and explain what See Do explained to me. And please don’t shoot the messenger.

           As the one thing, the world we project is complete with its full retinue of cause and effect. We richly perceive a world in fluid motion, even though the effect of that in our consciousness comes through a careful weaving of memory into what we think of as the immediate perceptual input.

           And as spiritual sages have said for millennia, this is an illusion. But be careful, because this really only confuses the issue by trying to bridge the two points of view. Here in our temporal reality, we fully perceive this thing we call Time (more on this in the next chapter), but for understanding See Do reality one needs to see the possibility that Time is uniquely native to our temporal reality perceptual state.

           Here in our temporal reality, we see time as a solid and immutable thing. But even here, it is not. The flow can be changed depending on our perceptual state. And consciously.

           We see this often. Time sometimes “flies,” sometimes “drags.” We have been taught to dismiss these irregularities. But with careful attention to your state of True Being, you can take some conscious control of this. See Do showed me how and with practice I have come to see the perceived flow of Time as somewhat malleable. Don’t be afraid to try for yourself.

           So the important things are these: This thing we call Time is an artifact of our conscious perceptions within this temporal reality. Within our consciousness, it is the fabric that our remembered experience of reality is written upon. Everywhere we look, we see it flowing. And without it there would be no state changes to perceive. Outside of our conscious perceptions, outside of our temporal reality, it does not exist.

            In See Do reality, all things exist as one. All endings are in all beginnings. The spirit of one is the spirit of all. All the energies, all the information that we and our science perceive as flowing through our temporal reality are there in infinite supply. Right there.

           You see, without Time there is also no distance, no Space. Without the physical gap between “things” there can be no Time. And without the distinction and separateness of “things,” both Time and Space hold no currency. Energies are not “separated,” so there is no hot, no cold. No darkness, no light. Some sages and translators have called it void, nothingness, even darkness. Beyond being utterly wrong conceptually and missing the point by quite a wide mark, these ideas just add confusion.

           So now we will move forward, gingerly, to better see the difference between our temporal reality and what lies behind the curtain, in See Do reality.

           I hope you’ll stay for the ride.
