Time is a construct of mind upon which reality hangs that determines the flow of life. When we are operating in the dream’s thought-system of opposites, we perceive this construct of time as linear. When we awaken and begin to operate according to the living thought-system of oneness, we perceive this construct as spherical.
In linear time, what was determines what will be.
In spherical time, what is Absolute, determines what is.
The mind sits as a gate between the uncreated and created so that it perceives both timelessness and time. In this creative role, it reflects uncreated potentials into a created reality. Potentials are thought forms reflecting the mind’s understanding. As the mind’s eye receives what it perceives as understanding, whether worldly wisdom or divine revelation, it projects a corresponding potential through the faculty of the mind’s will giving the understanding an energetic pulse, which creates thought energy. The mind conveys this thought energy into its projected reality which is like a multi-dimensional, spherical canvas, so that what we think becomes things. The mind’s active sequencing of potentials upon the canvas is perceived as time.
Each potential that manifests is like a living brush stroke upon the canvas. When our mind functions according to a thought-system of opposites, it creates brush strokes by individualized judgments. It attempts to judge, according to the understanding gained from past learning (worldly wisdom), a feasible and desirable potential from an array of probable potentials. As these judgments are energized by the mind’s will, the next brush stroke appears. Because this thought-system is based on relative truth, every attribute holds an opposing quality (i.e., peace/unrest, joy/grief, etc) so that the mind’s energetic field necessarily contains the energy of both. As a result of this duality, the manifested moment is sometimes desirable and sometimes not.
In this thought-system, what happened in the past can’t be changed, so the past dictates future potentials. This linear progression of the past into the future manifests the perception of linear time. In an illusionary world, future moments don’t preexist. Instead, they spring into being from the energy produced by the judgments of a dualistic mind. In the thought-system of opposites, we paint our personal timeline as we go along, so that time is perceived as the incremental creation of reality.
As our mind integrates into the living thought-system, it becomes one with living and ever-present Absolute Truth, which is the realm of unexpressed LIFE. In this Eternal, Infinite Expanse (Eye of God) every potential we will ever express or experience simultaneously preexists like one perfect, magnificently painted reality. By the working of Truth’s Divine Will through our mind, our individualized, preordained painting is increasingly revealed all around us moment by moment.
In the living thought-system, Truth’s Absolute Goodness predefines every potential manifested through our individualized mind, therefore there is no judgment and no duality. Our mind expresses the perfect potential for the moment that is harmoniously linked to every other moment in our life and the lives of others. As a result, the Life in Absolute Truth is spatially expressed as an harmoniously and ever-expanding sphere of Perfection, creating the experience of spherical time.
Because potentials are thought-forms reflecting our mind’s understanding, the understanding of Truth we receive from Truth’s Living Voice (divine revelation) enables our mind to receive divine potentials. By the Light of our understanding, our mind reflects divinely appointed potentials by translating them into energetic pulses. The Divine Will harmoniously dictates the flow of this energy, so what preexists in timelessness is reflected into a reality of time. As we rest in divine emergence, our preordained painting is increasingly revealed upon the spherical canvas of our reality. As a result, the Life in Absolute Truth is expressed in created forms and experienced in space and time.
Time, rightly perceived, is timeless and ever-present LIFE in motion as it expresses the perfect sequencing of potentials, moment by moment, through the living thought-system within our mind, that it may be experienced.
This shift in perception of time from linear to spherical enables our mind to transition from relative truth’s reflections of duality to Absolute Truth’s timeless reflections, which radiates Life’s divine harmony.
