TIME: Dancing in Stillness

  • Gloria's Home Classroom Winston-Salem, NC 27106 (map)

We have flowed with it, fought with it, saved it, abused it, managed it, cried over it, tried to control it, suffered from lack of it and a dozen other ways of handling this reality that we often insist doesn’t exist, and then we run out of it.

It is easy to surrender to frenzy at this intensified moment in our evolution. But many things we value and aspire to have to marinate, unfold, reveal their truths. Soundbites can collapse into the posture of a cartoon character sitting in a meditative pose with the caption: “C’mon, inner peace – I don’t have all day.”

Every religion and mystical tradition has its own alternative form of time: recurrent, cyclic, cosmic, sacred, timeless. Each one proposes ways of escaping the bonds of ordinary time which, subjectively experienced, sometimes races and sometimes plods. All traditions teach ways to transcend.

Direct, intuitive knowing transcends time. Precognition, retrognition, prophecy, premonitions, healing, sudden knowing, synchronicity all challenge our careful sequential sense of time.

This workshop is not about managing time per se. There are lots of books on that. Rather it is about various ways we perceive time and are conscious with it or not. It’s about our relationship to time. And our choices. It’s about taking one more step toward being aware that there is plenty of time … and … the time is now. Like a wave and a particle, it is both happening now and is moving.

As we chose this time to be incarnated, it is important that we show up for all the opportunities the present offers us, acknowledging that our soul mandates will be fulfilled in the context of the rushing demands of our world. Each of us can create a still island of peace in which we live both in Kiros (eternal time) and Kronos (Earth time). Not one, not the other. Both … simultaneously.

“When one sees Eternity in things that pass away, and Infinity in finite things, then one has pure knowledge."  ~The Bhagavad Gita
