“Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you – sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.”
Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium

It seems that irrespective of where I begin, at present, my mind returns to the topic of, Time. I decided to spend some time to see if or why there was something drawing me back to this topic time and again. It seems there is no way I can avoid it, and that is more truth than anything else. It seems that even in the things I wish to say, the message of “time” is put in front of me.

What is Time? According to Wikipedia it is described thus: –Time is the fourth dimension and a measure in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future, and also the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them.”

Of course there is a great deal more to the subject of time, enough to fill more than a single novel, but the general premise is there. Stories and films abound about time, whether it is being manipulated, people are travelling back or forward through it or simply translocation within it. For a great many it seems, time, is an engaging thought.

“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.”
Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

So why have I been so preoccupied with time? We’ve recently experienced another “Super Moon” in August 2014; in itself a special occurrence, and we have another closing in on September 9th/10th. A full moon brings the potential for change, if you so desire, a Super Moon heralds the possibility of great changes, so having two, so close together, plus another closely following, can create a time of upheaval.

I have been preoccupied with intense introspection, at times, almost being lost to the world around me, as I ponder the changes I have been through, and those I feel offered to me.

 “The strongest of all warriors are these two — Time and Patience.”

Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

It wasn’t long before the timing of our move from Byron Bay to Redland Bay, became apparent. By the time we had finished the transition and had ourselves settled into our new home, the July Super Moon was upon us. Coincidence? No, I don’t believe so. In the very act of packing we divested ourselves of much of the accumulated paraphernalia of the past. Even as we settled in we found still more things to recycle. (We rarely throw anything away as there are so many charities which can put those things we have not used, or need, to pass on to a good use.)

It was a time of clearing away the past, which was cluttering our way, making us ready for the new coming to us. It was a time of deep introspection as outmoded ideas and feelings were considered and discarded also. The way I perceive everything around me has felt altered, some things in a subtle fashion, and yet others in a more noticeable way.

At times I have felt a great unrest as my energy levels fluctuated. There would be days filled with energy and bubbling excitement followed by days where everything felt like a heavy weight and a struggle to simply move through the day. Then, of late, there has been more time spent in simple contemplation as the urgency of the past seemed to dissipate.

Looking at the Super Moon through a crystal ball.

Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

I have finally found more time to visit the local “duck pond”, which it will be called until it is time for us to leave. I have yet to find another name located anywhere for it, and since there are plenty of ducks around, as well as other wildlife, the “duck pond” it will remain. It is peaceful and calm, and yesterday I saw my first wallaby here. (Yes Laurie, I finally saw one here!) It was a beautiful “Pretty Face” wallaby and as soon as I get through the one thousand photos I’ve just downloaded I will post some of the local wildlife.

It was a beautiful day. We had been deluged by just over ninety millimetres of rain the day before, great for the plants and garden and then, walking round the pond we decided to explore a little further. As the light was fading I grabbed a couple of photos of an old dead tree. Then I found it was far from dead… but more of that to come.

“Fantasy, if it’s really convincing, can’t become dated, for the simple reason that it represents a flight into a dimension that lies beyond the reach of time.”
Walt Disney Company

So, Super Moons, full moons, moving, packing, clearing out and settling in, opening myself to the Universe and Spirit; it has been a time of many changes. The exploration of things and themes I hadn’t thought about in-depth for a long time, and the resolution of some old hurts. It has proven that time can have so many different aspects. Sometimes thought of as the “fourth dimension” it is not such a farfetched idea after all. I have finally found the time and desire to unpack my wonderful crystals. My home is filled with the bautiful crystal energy which makes me feel more serene. Who says a preoccupation with time is a bad thing – definitely not me, and a Super Moon, the Harvest Moon is soon to come.

The beautiful August Super Moon cannot hide.

Future: Past, Present or Future

Be mindful of your self talk, courtesy of Facebook.com

” What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new, right now.” – Unknown Author

~

There is always much discussion regarding the future. Yet there is another way of looking at it, and whilst it may sound strange, it is, in its own way, perfectly sensible. Have you stopped to consider the future in these terms; the future past, future present and the future?

In order to look at this strange idea I would ask you suspend normal thought processes and simply look at this idea.

~

The Future – Past.

~

The future past is achieved by having knowledge of the future which by its very nature has allowed you to behave differently in the past. This past could not have occurred if you did not have this knowledge. The purist would argue that the future has been altered because of the knowledge it has provided to you in the past. Convoluted, perhaps, but take a few minutes to think about it and its possibilities.

~

The Future – Present.

~

Once again, the future present is able to exist because you have been able to acquire knowledge from the future which you are able to use in the present. This present could not exist if you had not been able to know information from the future. It might have benefits, but we are unable to determine what it might alter in the future. Give it a moment and think of the possibilities.

~

The Future – Future.

~

In this context, the future must be referred to as the future, future. This is the future which would be created by bringing forward all the changes which occurred in the past and present due to knowledge taken into the past and present from the future. This is an even more convoluted theory, but needs more than a moment to consider.

Is this Science Fiction or Science Fantasy or simply a view of the future?  Who can really know? There are purists from each group who would argue this on its merits, and who is to say it is so farfetched an idea?

To answer a possible question, I have been watching a program called “Fringe”. It has progressed through some fascinating plot lines and stories, bordering at times on pure science fantasy and at others on science fiction. I have difficulty deciding between the two, because the lines are blurred between them each time we make a new advancement.

~

Once Alexander Graham Bell was ridiculed for the idea of communicating over vast distances using a telephone, yet we take this for granted now.

~

Marconi was disbelieved when he said we would be able to talk using a radio.

~

Similarly, Albert Einstein was laughed at with his theory of relativity and gravity.

~

All of these and many more have been shown to be future thoughts of impossible scenarios which were in their present, shown to be possible and their future, our present, accepted as normal. The same can be said for physical accomplishments. Take flying to the moon in spacecraft.  An impossibility which is now accepted as such a common occurrence that many people pay it no heed.

~

~

There is no special ‘ah ha’ moment to this idea. It occurred to me that the way we think about any given event can be coloured by what we know and believe at that time and in the time to come.  Dreams are made of this: the ability to blend fact and the not yet fact, and bring them together in a possible future. Such are the talents of our storytellers. Such are our talents and abilities. Exciting isn’t it?

Here are some of the possibilities people have already thought of.

~

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
T. E. Lawrence

~

There are millions of ideas, and more as ideas are born each day. The only thing limiting out imagination is ….. our imagination.  The future is limitless.

May imagination and ideas flow to you always.
