Now that we’ve warmed up, let’s dig a little deeper and get a better TIME-STRETCH!
Our Collective Measure
Having touched on Shared-Time, let’s continue from where we left off and make our way into an equation.
I live alongside everyone else in this world, and if I don’t stay synced, I’ll struggle (this coming from a lifetime struggler!). Physical Time is a collective measure we all share in our relationship with the outside world. Each of us must move around and engage in various activities that occupy many physical spaces in reality, or else we’ll have problems. Therefore, to process my behaviour in with yours, I require a common interval between us so that we collaborate and create the uniform needed, in the name of life/experiencing.
However, my perception of time, which is where I FEEL time’s weight, is solely dependant on my current state of mind and can easily fall out of the collective without notice.
Can you relate to the following?
In the above instance, the ratio of Physical to Psychological Time shapes at 1:5 or 1:10 and is undesirable. Short story, I compress or bend the perception of time, either feeling it for longer or shorter, depending on the sensations drawn from fear or pleasure, respectively. And when reversed, the effects turn to a spacious quality rather than tight, and the ratio sets as 5:1 or 10:1. I.e. Time flies when you’re having fun. It drags when you’re not!
Here’s the Tip
If you often find yourself stuck in an undesirable field of time, please watch as the appeal eventually cycles back, however short (usually by an escape!). Because if you do and begin noticing these changes in scenery, then you are self-aware and are helping yourself!
Also, notice what action is taken when it’s picked up. Be aware of applying more thoughts that redirect your attention as a way to suppress the undesirable scene for longer. Now that I’ve caught myself fluctuate and flip, I work in better with the collective.
It’s definitely the power in my thinking that rules my world of time, not the clock on the wall!
