It is true that one of the most important masteries we can strive for is that of time “control”. (Remember: you control your perception.)
We should therefore attempt to understand two things:
- Time does not exist. We can experience all points of time at once with extrasensory expansion. Emotions are not bound by time. As an example, consider this scenario: Your beloved has left on a trip. You may feel loss and longing. However, when time is removed from perception, she has already returned to you, and you can draw strength from that moment (as all moments exist at once).
- We can suspend “time”. We can stay in the “present” moment by enacting a state of perpetual meditative thinking. By doing so in all moments, all moments are accessible for reflection. This can be accomplished not by withdrawing into one’s mind, but by releasing the restrictions your active mind inadvertently sets into place (by wondering about bills, or what’s on the TV, or what’s for dinner). Instead, put your entire focus into only that which you can sense in your immediate surroundings, be it your bedroom, your office, or the bus. Listen. Look.
This is your time.
