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.

The Blank Page


     

     Talk to any writer and they’ll tell you of the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that comes when staring at a blank  page.  Be it stagnation from a temporary block or not being able to get it all out fast enough, the experience can be quite daunting.

     Take a look at a sheet of paper.  Notice how the lines create a boxing-in effect, the page itself is a box.  This box represents our lives and the lines are the days of our lives.  The top of the page indicates the beginning of our lives where nothing is written but our names.  We learn to respond to being called by this label.  As we go down the page it would start to be filled with what we were told that life is all about.  The middle part of the page would represent us beginning to understand what we’ve been told and the process of acting accordingly.  The bottom of the page would represent how we began to live our lives according to what we’ve learned and now understand.

     Today I’d like to propose something to you that would change your life as you now know it… turn the page over!  That’s right.  Turn over the page and this time you get to name yourself!  This time you get to write your own path.  Who do you want to be?  Where would you like to go?  You are now in control, all you have to do is write it down and act on it!  Once you’ve filled that page…go to the next one and keep writing until the book of your life is done.  I promise, it really is that simple.

      So, let there be a great sound in the air from the sound of pens scratching the paper and boots hitting the ground… let’s go!
