IT’S ABOUT TIME !!!

March 20, 2015

A Glimpse into the Timeless Moment

This blog is coming out of an explosion in me
dispelling the belief in time …
It was a quote by Tom Carpenter
that set this “time” bomb off …

clock

An alarming world of hours … tick tock! tick tock!
We’ve been strangled by the hands of an imaginary clock!

There Is No Time!
No time to Lose …
No time to find … No time to fill
No time to fly … No time to kill

Time and again we’ve been told that there is no time …
Yet there seems to have been many years of struggling,
trying to “be here now”… to “stay in the moment” …

“stay focused … don’t let appearances entice
pay attention … that’s the price
no wandering off … no distractions allowed
it’s our attention … keep it nowed”

Over and over there’s been a wrestling with “this” moment …
trying to see through appearances and separateness …
trying to be aware of God as inseparable from this moment …

A belief in time
And evil and good
Are myths that constitute
Humanhood
tree
What’s behind the highs and lows
And everything that comes and goes?
The quest for the changeless has pushed me on …
Closer than breathing … it must dawn

Some of you might remember a TV show called Dragnet
with Jack Webb … he was always solving crimes and
interviewing witnesses who would ramble on and on
with their version of what happened …

I remember him continuously saying …
“JUST THE FACTS, MAAM!
JUST THE FACTS!”

That’s what I wanted …. not elaborate tales …
JUST THE FACTS!
“WHO AM I!  WHO AM I NOT!
WHAT IS!  WHAT ISN’T!”

At some point someone gave me a copy of
Practicing the Presence by Joel Goldsmith
and I was home …
His writings, THE INFINITE WAY,
reveal the “facts” in a language
that resonate with me …

the nature of God
the nature of man
the ONENESS of God and man
the nature of appearances
the clarification of living between “two” worlds …

God’s Kingdom …
and “this world”- a world of appearances …
appearances of persons, places, things, circumstances and conditions that are
all concepts stemming from the hypnotic belief in a mythical two-power tree
with knowledge of good and evil
and an illusory finite self who ate of that tree
and is living a false sense of existence …

this conceptual world is a world of mental images
and like the mirage on the desert
the images are never externalized reality …

Consistently living and practicing these principles,
chewing on them and letting them digest
and become flesh of our flesh and bone of our bone …
is “dying daily”… as Joel Goldsmith puts it,
dispelling a false conditioned finite sense of self …
leading to the realization of the one true Nature …

I’m so very grateful for The Infinite Way teaching …
to find a Voice and recognize it as your own is indeed a blessing …
everyone is led to their own Voice within …

Okay … we’re getting to the quote I mentioned  
that prompted this blog …
lightningI happened upon it and was struck by shock waves
that have jolted and shaken me to my roots …

heartfelt thanks to Tom Carpenter

“Stop for a moment and consider
that without our invention of time,
in the reality of God’s eternity,
this moment you are in
is the same moment Creation began
and will eternally exist exactly as it is.

Thoughts will come and go,
bodies seem to appear and disappear;
worlds will arise and fall
and this moment will remain eternally the same.”

What a profound powerful statement!
 
“THIS” moment and the moment Creation began
is the SAME moment … and will ETERNALLY exist AS IT IS …
this statement completely dissolves the belief in time …

all sense of time and distance between the beginning God moment and “THIS” moment
is removed … closing the illusory gap between “then and now”…“there and here”

We somehow accepted that the moment of Creation …
the beginning God moment … was “long ago and far away” from THIS present moment …
and have been trying to get back to the beginning before
an imagined sense of separation …

“this moment you are in
is the same moment Creation began
and will eternally exist exactly as it is” …

IN THE BEGINNING … GOD …
There has never been a separation from that moment …
The beginning moment is the ONLY moment that IS,
that ever HAS BEEN and will ever BE

God … Silence Stillness Spaciousness …
being eternally AS IT IS!

Tom Carpenter’s glorious insightful quote is dissolving
an illusory sense of separation
between the moment Creation began and THIS moment …

HAS ANYTHING EVER ACTUALLY HAPPENED
FROM THE BEGINNING MOMENT … TO “THIS” MOMENT
… which is the SAME moment!
 the one timeless eternal moment is changeless …
without time there can be no change …

“Nothing ever happened”… Poonja

We look through this world of conceptual appearances …
to the timeless moment
remaining eternally the same …
undisturbed by any appearance …

“Thoughts will come and go,
bodies seem to appear and disappear;
worlds will arise and fall
and this moment will remain eternally the same.”

this unfoldment is churning on …
leaving no time for beliefs or believers …
birth or death … good or evil …
past or future … heaven or hell …
they’re all thoughts that come and go
and THIS unconditioned moment remains eternally the same …

Yes, I have certainly been struck
and maybe there is something in Tom Carpenter’s quote
that will strike you …
           
It has in no uncertain terms forced me to take a “time out”
and open up to the timelessness of this eternal moment …

“Stop for a moment and consider that
without our invention of time,
in the reality of God’s eternity,
this moment you are in
is the same moment Creation began
and will eternally exist exactly as it is.

Thoughts will come and go,
bodies seem to appear and disappear;
worlds will arise and fall
and this moment will remain eternally the same.”

desert-time

William Blake could see through illusory sands of time …
He saw eternity in a grain of sand … how divinely sublime!
***
Mirage images appear … is the desert disturbed one bit
By illusory images appearing on it!

    Beautiful! Thank you for sharing your “aha” moment.

    God is the only thing thee is, that is. God is the only moment there is, that is. There are no other moments apart from or other than the Infinite Moment that is God.

    marc … yes … God is THIS moment … no other moment! … in THIS moment God is ALL … there’s no one separate … Joel tells us this in Living Now and Eckhart Tolle in The Power of Now … the “POWER of NOW” … wow … no ONE in the NOW but God … Love and Blessings … as we meet in oneness in the eternal NOW … xoxoxoxo
