In this conversation with Pedro de Alcantara on the Healing Path, he and I talk about Time. Pedro has some fascinating ideas and some very fun ways of changing our perceptions of time.
Clock Time is a construct that we humans have made to communicate with each other. We use it to synchronize appointments, meetings, and durations of events. It is an arbitrary blanket laid over the earth, the moon, and the sun by humans. The math isn’t even very accurate in the currently dominant calendar. Every 4 years we have phased out of time far enough that another day is added to the calendar and we have a leap year. Seriously, this is another one of those mutually agreed upon consensual realities. My friend Ione and I speak about consensual realities in our Healing Path Conversation Dream Healing.
Earth Time is entirely different than human time. If flows at a much slower pace, think how long it took for the Grand Canyon to form. Here is a place in Kansas that is growing and changing in Earth Time. I like to say that this is the next Grand Canyon. Just off Highway 15 in Kansas
Summer Time – the lazy, hazy days of summer. Those hot, sunny, long days where the sun doesn’t set until after 9 p.m. When time seems to stretch like taffy and everyone moves slowly through the heat wishing they had a tall iced drink.
Late Time – from Alice in Wonderland, I imagine we’ve all experienced this – I know I have.
“I’m late, I’m late for
A very important date.
No time to say hello, good-bye,
I’m late, I’m late, I’m late
I’m late and when I wave,
I lose the time I save.”
How do you move through time… Have you lost time, found time, or saved time recently?
What do you think about mealtime, sleep time, and one of my favorites, DREAM TIME?
I’d love to hear about your relationship to and with time!
