You may wonder how we can be free from time – what does this mean?
It’s all to do with energy, you see time is not a form of energy, therefore, because everything is energy and time is not energy, time cannot exist. We use ‘time’ as a measurement tool. The sun rises and sets and then rises again – we call this a ‘day’, divide it up into 24 ‘hours’ and each hour into 60 ‘minutes’ and so on.
We use this to measure what we do and how quickly – less time – or slowly – more time – we do it. What we ‘do’, and the only activity, mental or physical, we ever do is transform energy from one state to another. When it comes down to it it’s usually a process of changing thoughts into things or another energy state such as movement or observation adding to thought. Everything is energy so everything we do is energy.
But why do we need to have invented time? It’s about co-ordination. Many of the energy transformations we carry out require us to operate in groups, so we need to be in the same ‘place’ as other members of the group to be able to do this together at the same ‘time’, the same ‘period’ in the day.
The problem is we get into the habit of setting a ‘time’ for everything we do, how ‘long’ it should take and when it should happen whether it involves others or not and instead of focussing on what we are doing, we focus on the time we do it and the time it takes.
The question we have to ask ourselves is ‘does this really matter, or can we release ourselves from the tyranny of time?’
