Exploring space and time

 

A quick note:

I notice I find it equally helpful to explore time and space.

In both cases, I see and feel it is all happening here, in my own world of images.

I am caught up in stories about the world. Then, I recognize how the mental field creates a sense of space, and how all these stories are mapped onto this imagined space. It is all happening here.

I am caught up in stories about the past or future. Then, I recognize how the mental field creates a sense of time, and how all these stories are mapped onto this imagined time line. It is all happening here.

In either case, there is a shift from being caught up in stories, images and projections as solid, real, true and “out there” in the world or the past or future, and to recognizing images and stories as images and stories happening right here. If this is seen and felt thoroughly, there is also a shift from a sense of “I” here and the wider world out there, and all happening as awareness itself.

Note 1: Exploring time, there is the recognition that the present is also a story. There is imaginations of time and a further division into past, future and present. I also find that recognizing time as imaginary, space is also recognized as imaginary, and the other way around. Both end up in the same place. They are two takes on the same.

Note: Exploring time, there is also the recognition that the present is also a story. There is an overlay of images of time and a division into past, future and present. They are all part of that overlay imaginations of time. I wonder if that’s why the teachers in my local group emphasize exploration of time and de-emphasize space. An exploration of time may take care of both. Still, I find both explorations useful and interesting, each in their own way. They are two takes on the same.

And when the present, lodged between past and future, is recognized as images, space is similarly recognized as images. I wonder if that’s why the teachers in my local group emphasize exploration of time and de-emphasize space. An exploration of time may take care of both. Still, I find both explorations useful and interesting, each in their own way. They are two takes on the same.
