I’ll Meet You There

 

 

Just a little Sunday Something –  Deepak Chopra in optima forma – weaving science, ancient wisdom and poetry into a captivating tapestry, talking about Time and Wholeness. And as we are running out of time we are walking into a place that is out-of-time, where you just forget to take pictures because there’s no concept of either past or future. A place that’s so beautifully captured by Rumi:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other” doesn’t make any sense

 
If anything, just listen to Deepak reciting  Tagore’s Stream of Life @ 3:20.

– Stream Of Life –

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass
and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
and of death, in ebb and in flow

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment

 

 

From slow time to no-time

Last Friday night the image1 above came to me in an in-spirit-ational flash (“thank you”, with a culturally induced nod up to the sky).  I could hear the clickety-click in my head; a whole lot of stuff comes together in this picture for me, either as “oh, I get it” or “but what about..?”. Nothing more lunar …uuuhh… human than a moment of clarity giving rise to more questions. That’s how we learn and grow. So bear with me as I walk you through it. And please add a “right?” (with voice going up) at the end of each sentence – if you read anything in here as stated with obvious conviction, you’re not reading it correctly (of this I’m pretty sure).

Even though we tend to  think of time as linear (past-present-future), we all experience its malleable nature: the days are long, but the years are short.  And even when we hear about relativity or “there is only now”, it’s still not something we really get get, including yours truly. Earlier this year I came across the work of Mr. Calleman, who concludes that the Mayan calendar ends on October 28th 2011. Most interesting is the whole concept of the acceleration of time.  Evolutionary steps are completed faster and faster. No wonder our current phase is referred to as The Quickening. We’re running out of time.

Now let’s jump to the visual above, and see how this stuff all ties together(RIGHT?). The letter A stands for ‘action/intention/initiation’, and the letter B for ‘reaction/manifestation/completion’. We could say that time, depicted as the dotted line, is the bridge to get from A to B. When the bridge is really long, as in the left, it’s hard to connect the dots between action and reaction. You kicked someone in 346 A.D. and you get sucker punched in 2011: “why me, why me?” Hello karma and hello cosmic amnesia. I simply forgot.

So with time accelerating, or the bridge (dotted line) getting shorter, things manifest quicker and quicker. So big societal changes that took first 100 years (industrial revolution) to take hold, then 10 years (internet), are now down to mere months and weeks. So perceived time is a  frequency  that is constantly being turned up a notch, or as a sound analogy: we’re hearing an ever increasing pitch. Or for the visually inclined: brighter light. Or for the touchy-feely people:  more L-O-V-E.

So as we’re closing in on the right-hand part of the picture, where things happen in no-time, time will collapse in on itself. And we’ll be living in the dreamy void of Eternal Now. Imagine that (pretty hard I can tell you).

Now,  what are the implications of no-time. Can you say karmic game changer: if you kick someone, you’ll instantly kick yourself. It’s divine tough love, a crash course Law of Attraction, and I’m pretty sure you’ll catch on quickly (if not instantly). No more kicking. Wonderful. And think about all the inspired heartfelt  ideas, dreams and talents taking root and bearing fruit in the blink of an eye. Hello Unity Consciousness, bye-bye duality. Now we do the happy dance.

Big question: what happens to residue karma. Because I’m currently not entirely sure that we’ve satisfyingly dealt with that little detail, are you?  So are we gonna be buried in B’s – all the consequences of past action – , raining down on us (vertical line on the right) to be cleaned up first? Or a graceful act of cosmic clemency to wipe our slates clean?  See, more questions – I told you so.

So if (as mind-boggling as it seems) this is what’s going on, then when and how will it manifest itself?  I mean this is one big freaking quantum leap in consciousness, we only will be getting after (yes, linear time reference) the fact. But then we probably don’t care anymore.

Well, we may all be living in 2011, but that doesn’t mean we’re all living in the same “time”.  Each soul is at her own stage in this whole epic journey, individually. But what if there’s a collective timeline that overrides the individual’s?  What if this chunk of consciousness a.k.a. Mother Earth we live on wants to get more comfy and is reaching her end of the line, ready to move to greener pastures? Whether we’re all “ready” or not.  If the time pressure is put on everyone as a collective, irrespective of your soul level and frequency, this could very well mean a splitting of realities. We all may perceive the world and our lives in very distinct ways, either from love or fear –  your choice  – duality to the max.

As many still are living out their inner turmoil in the outer world, amplified by an unknown pressure building, with old structures crumbling (as is inside so is outside), they may feel dis-heartened, debilitated. “Where will this end?” Others may stand in calmness, as a peaceful, compassionate observer knowing that that outer manifestation has nothing to do with their inner core anymore.  It all depends on your vantage point. My take on this? I’d say it’s the  Beginning of the END – It’s the Eternal Now Dawning.
