Because everything we experience has already happened, our present moment is always in the past.
I know, I know. It is such a stretch, right? But, stay with me….
Let’s consider, say, what the déjà vu implies.
You meets a stranger for the first time and then realise you know him from somewhere. You feel like this moment has already happened.
Well, it has. It is impossible to meet a stranger for the first time, and we have been playing these games for eternity!
In truth, the two of you met in the 4th dimension and pre-arranged to get your physical shells to meet up in the 3rd dimension so that you can act out a scene that would further both your “evolution” back to the awareness that we are making it all up!
As you sleep, word-for-word instructions are impressed onto your subconscious in what we call “dreams”. Most people are totally unaware of what dreams really are.
In our true form, we are spiritual beings and the word “spiritual” simply means “imaginal”.
The scenes we call dreams, daydreams, fantasy etc actually exist or you would not be able to imagine them.
To imagine them is to give them attention and attention is the true currency of the Universe. This is why the News and the movies and the music and social media are all trying VERY hard to get your attention.
Attention is power!
Shakespeare put it this way:
“And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts”
This is all that is happening on Earth. We are actors speaking out rehearsed lines, but generating genuine emotion to impress the audience.
At some point, we got lost in the movie itself and forgot that we can always take the costumes off and return to the Imaginal Selves that authored the entire drama.
But, while we are here: we experience each moment like it is new. Fresh. Unalterable. This is the greatest lie ever told. Wanna know what the scriptures say? Ecclesiastes 1:9-11
“The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there a thing of which it may be said, “Behold, this is new?” It has been long ago, in the ages which were before us.There is no memory of the former; neither shall there be any memory of the latter that are to come, among those that shall come after.”
This is a 2000 year old book ^^!!!!!
If I am part of an already written script, then I am under compulsion to act exactly the way the author intended in the same way hollywood actors have little to no control over the lines they have to memorise.
Also, when you are watching the finished movie, it feels like everything is unfolding right now!! You go along for the ride, feeling every emotion as though this in real time.
You forget that it is you who placed the DVD in the deck. Which means… the ending (future) had already happened before you even started watching.
Doesn’t this mean that every moment you enjoyed in the now was actually in the past?!
Just food for thought. I wish you happy contemplation.
