In consciousness there is no time
Closed eyes see events of earlier today
The same as those from yesterday
I had an experience without time consciousness just this summer while I was sitting on the bank of the Magothy River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. This mossy spot below an old white oak was where I sat as a child watching mallards, herons, and all varieties of smaller birds do their fishing and nesting; rearing their young.
Were these the same speed boats of 40 years ago zooming ahead, or circling more majestic sail boats, all making their way the 5 miles out to the broader expanse of the bay, just beyond Gibson Island?
For me it was possible to go home again; I felt just as I did sitting there as a child.
In contradiction, it is said we can't go back, but in consciousness we are not bound by the knot of a time line; we really can go back, simultaneously enjoying the present, by sinking into the fullness of experience.
As my body and mind relaxed, there was ease, comfort, in discovering what was experienced in the past is alive and real today in my consciousness.
Events come and go
What survives are memories and love once experienced
Love continuous regardless of worldly limits of time and place
Dear-ones remaining with us; us with them
behind closed eyes, relaxed body, peaceful mind
