Over the past month we have been sharing bits and pieces of insights about the forming of linear time on Almine’s personal Facebook page. Today, for the first time, we share all of these insights combined. Great perspectives on subjects like identity, self-pity and polarity and their relationship to linear time. It is not the easiest of material, but absolutely worth reading and reflecting on to see if you can use these different points in your own journey to spiritual mastery.
“Something quite profound came into my awareness today. It is about the origin of time.
Time formed when peak experiences of rapture were held onto by the Infinite within Its Being. The entrapment of time keeps us in the circular cage of the past, present and future. This is a treadmill we must step off from, to remember our eternal self as the source of our unique expression. Identity forms from our accumulated story as we travel through time.
As we travel around and around in cycles of linear time, we create a history which we identify with. The history forms and shapes the body, soul and spirit as vehicles to contain these identities created by the experiences and memories accumulated as we travel through linear time.
Body, soul and spirit keep us on the treadmill of linear time by creating karma through deliberately obscuring vision. They are strengthened even though they are the result of the identities we accumulate through time, and are therefore an illusional creation by:
1) The fictitious belief in the law of compensation that creates karma.
2) The use of mind and limited senses as a way of accessing perception, thus allowing parts of existence to be obscured.
3) By creating the three parts of linear time that keep us repeating the same cycles of existence.
Adversity is the result of polarity – the flow of resources, back and forth between poles that have separated. The competitive and adversarial relationship between poles, create an inner war that manifests without.
Polarity is formed in the following way: We strive for certain results in order to control outcome in physicality. This creates the future. We then have an opposite and equal reaction from our soul. It looks backwards by clinging to the past with either sentimentality or self-pity.
The opposite desires and reaching, would form a vacuum, as soul and body pull apart. But spirit fills the gap (the gap between the present and the past is what the moment is). Spirit controls the now. It does so through value judgements kept in place by belief systems.
It is from the movement forward and backward that the reference point of the moment is formed. The reference point that tries to remain stationary. The movements into what is to come and what was, creates time. Where this movement and reference point take place, space is created.
The dynamics of the backward movement (feminine), the forward movement (masculine) and the stationary reference point, create the two overlapping fields found around the body of a highly evolved being and can also be seen in the Yin-Yang symbol.” ~ Almine
