The Speed of Life


Ever notice the difference between driving and riding in a car.  When you’re driving, you anticipate the moving and the swaying of the car as you bob and weave through traffic.  You know  when you’re going to brake or accelerate before taking the action therefore you’re ready mentally and physically when it happens.  However, when you’re the passenger, you’re at the mercy of the driver.  Your entire body reacts to their every move and you have no control over what happens next.  It’s not (all the time) really that the person can’t drive, it’s mostly that you’re not expecting what the next action so you can’t prepare for it.  I’ll come back to this in a moment.

In March of this year, sky watchers caught a fleeting glimpse of a star exploding, 33 million light years away.  Read the article here: http://www.space.com/15040-photos-supernova-m95-skywatchers.html

Okay so, what they’re saying is that, this event occurred 33 million years ago but we’re just seeing this year.  This really captured my attention and thoughts for some time now due to the implications of this phenomenon.  This would mean that if there were people in that galaxy and they could see us on Earth, they would be seeing us the way we’d be in 33 million years from now.   This just blows my mind continually.  This would also mean that right now, to them, our current place in time has already passed… 33 million years ago.  Hold on, because it gets weirder;  if you could see 33 million years in the opposite direction, we haven’t even happened yet and we won’t for another 33 million years. 

Time then, is based on our perception and perception is a result of our awareness. So basically, time is the result of our awareness.

Back to the driver and the passenger.  The driver sees things before they happen and therefore is prepared for them when they happen;  the passenger reacts to what has happened.

The term think ahead is not a misnomer.  Thinking ahead simply means to know where you’re going ahead of time, take the correct path to get there and prepare yourself for the outcome.  A thought travels at the speed of light or faster…(from the little that I know on the subject).  When traveling at the speed of light everything around you slows way down.  You’d then have to wait for everything to catch up with you…even time or at least the accepted perception of it. This is the speed of life.

We actually have a choice of the speed we’d like to go.  Are we passengers in life or drivers?  Do we create our lives or respond to them?  If we treated every minute like an hour, we could experience our own lives.  I do believe time travel is possible, we just have to understand the vehicle that we already have to get through it.

Bi-Focals


Have you ever thought about the fact that the only thing that separates how we feel on the inside from what we express on the outside is merely a very thin layer of skin…and for some of us hair.  Our eyes and ears record the stories of our lives.

Speaking of eyes, let’s start there. The eyes are like the lens of a camera and the brain a recording device. What the eyes see, the brain records for current or later use. Our brains are so powerful that we’re recording more than we can actually keep up with, but it’s still being recorded. The ears are the other key contributor here; they’re a function all to themselves.  You could very well be looking at someone but hear something completely different than what they said.  Now, the most intriguing part of this process to me is the transition between what went in and what comes out.  How we interpret and process what goes into us is what our lives are really all about. Its like we’re our own photo processing centers since no two people can physically see the same thing the same way; there become an infinite number of ways to see the same thing. So throughout our lives we’re constantly recording and storing data and emitting our interpretations of this data all over everyone else. Why do you think that is?

I see our minds as a sort of vortex. A place that an infinite amount of possibilities and realities all exist in the same place at the same time. However, what’s happening on the inside is affected by what’s going on outside. In other words aren’t we only products of what surrounds us?  All of our ups and downs are based on the environment that we find ourselves in; conversely the environment that we’re in is based on our decision to be there which was influenced by how we felt…

As I sit and write this blog I’m trying to get out of me the interpretation of a feeling that was created by afects around me as well.  There’s a riddle here to be solved.  How do I gain control of the world that is within when its being influenced by the world without?  Since babies we have strived to express what we felt inside to the world outside.  We dress up in our lies each morning and try to show that we have control over ourselves when just behind that thin layer of skin a plethera of feelings, thoughts and beliefs are dying to be exposed.

As I watch the process of the calamity that erodes the sanctity of the land in the Middle East, at times I almost find it funny how two peoples with (I’d put money on it) very similar DNA sequences, could hate one another so feverently.  This is all based on their belief systems and their insistance that everyone else possess the same.  We don’t even have to go that far to see this same behavior.  In our own homes, aren’t arguments simply that one person sees things differently than the other?

Time has a funny way of revealing things and it’s finally revealed to me that life is just the way we see it….
