Absence of Time

Post by Garry » Wed Jan 08, 2014 8:51 am

I am looking for peoples input on Absence of Time .

That to me has got to be the most unique thing I can ever imagine.

When we are alive , are we moving at such a slow vibration to when we pass on . so many people speak of people waiting for them when they pass , but if there is no such thing as time how can you be waiting for someone.

Id like to hear other people opinions regarding the absence of time and see where the discussion leads.

I myself cant put the concept of " Absense of Time " into words that make sence to me as we are all controlled and manipulated by " Time " and other people who " Have control Of our Time "

In my world ( life ) like many other people Time, has become a Thing that is used to gauge our life

[list=1]Pay by the hour
How long does it take to get there
You have so many hours to complete a study coarse
you have an appointment at a certain time[/list]

and the list goes on and on !!!!!!!!

After reading all of the stories on nderf.org about peoples experences the one part of the experence that really intrigues me is the absece of time .

We all know that TIME is a man made thing to account for the rotation of the earth to create day and night and to account for the rotation around the sun that creates the various seasons.

I would like to share a very wonderful poem by Robert Hastings that has been the guiding principal of my life since I found it

Eccles 9:12


The Station

[centre]"Relish the moment" is a good motto, especially when coupled with Psalm 118:24 ,
"This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."[/centre]

Maybe in the next life the consequences of your thoughts are instant and therefore irreversible. We have time here so we can learn and change.

Many of the NDE's report if you wanted to see someone all you had to do was think about them. If you wanted a prop (like a bench to sit on) all you had to do was think it and it was so. Instant gratification in this life leads to trouble.

I agree that " Instant Gratification " in this life can be trouble but that depends on what you are using to satisfy the "Instant Gratification "

My Instant Gratification is so simple .... I stop ..... and I look at the trees or the sky or the field growing something ..... and I say Thank You ....

and I have my Instant Gratification .........................

A second possibility is that time does exist in the presence of God, but it doesn't matter, because there is no decay. This universe has entropy, which is to say that the ability to do useful work declines continuously. The Creation is decaying under the weight of sin and that is felt as time passing.

That's an interesting second possibility you present dnix71; but rather than entropy being caused by 'sin', might it be simply a feature/characteristic of 3 dimensional physicality - 'materialness'. In the physical world, 'Time' can be said to be the separating of the sequence of events. In the non-physical, spiritual world, 'eternity' may be an easier concept for the human mind to understand if there is no separation of events, i.e., all events that ever were or ever would be exist in a continual 'Now'.

There is time in Heaven according to the Bible.
Rev 8:1 "When the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour."

But God is eternal and never changes. Time is measured here by change. The hands on a clock move, the sun rises and sets, constellations move through the sky, people mature, grow old and die. Kingdoms rise and fall. Stuff wears out. In Heaven there will be no sun moon and stars because Jesus will be the Light of Heaven. Yesterday still was but it will always be Today. But Yesterday and the pain and sin of it will be forgotten after the Judgment so only Today remains.

Ah now this is the kind of dialog We are all waiting for

very interesting opinions there and I see that you figured out how to use the pop up bible verse thing that was installed.

That the first time it has been used for a discussion and I see it works very well

I will have to re read these posts and reply later

Im still busy fixing mistakes I have made setting this up

Don't worry about mistakes made when setting this up Garry. i can assure you that debugging is the daily companion and bread of any web design activity. Nothing works at the first shot with web design. Ever. It takes days of fine tuning, and once done you discover that room for improvements, for unexpected behaviours and interactions, and for further adjustments and new unexpected bugs accounts for month and months of further activity.
There is a reason big companies release bugfixes unceasingly :-)
You're doing great, and i didn't stumble, personally, in one single malfunction yet.

So time is a concept created by men whose implications affect us all while living in this 3 dimensional world -mind,space and time.

Another detail that i found relevant brought about by drix was the dichotomic approach into time between consciousness out of the body and consciousness incarnated. And i wonder how a nder can judge things differently. Perhaps and most probably the moral aspects of existence may gain in importance overpower and take over the material values of simple wordly pleasures.
in a word everything which feeds a selfish material oriented living. But when we return to spirit-life, we compare those fugitive enjoyments with the freedom and happiness we obtain, even if it is through occasional glimpses as someone going through a close brush to death, out of the body consciousness may judge things differently, now that consciousness owns all its attributes (many of them lost cause the physical body blurs perception) such happiness cannot be compared to a little temporary suffering. Here we have a paradox= things as the human being view as incarnate, and the new paradigm that unveils before the eyes of consciousness out of the body.

"Relish the moment" is a good motto, especially when coupled with Psalm 118:24, "This is
the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."

So stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, swim more rivers, climb more
mountains, kiss more babies, count more stars. Laugh more and cry less. Go barefoot oftener.
Eat more ice cream. Ride more merry-go-rounds. Watch more sunsets. Life must be lived as we
go along. The station will come soon enough.

Carpe Diem @Garry i just read the article in one long deep breath.while the train rode. It's breathtaking such a seemingly neve r ending journey in space and time. Digging in the moment even in the waking hours with a feeling of appreciation for every single manifestation of the creation that we come across every moment. Unfortunately Garry people interested in spirituality in general and in ndes in particular tend to underestimate our objective 3dimensional existence upon the earth.It s a mistake.

My experience involved entering into infinite Light through a doorway. When I entered into it and looked behind me the doorway was gone. This is because it was a passage to the infinite dimension and there cannot be a door there. This dimension is timeless. The prismic, golden strands of brilliant Light reached on forever, into my heart, conferring divine Love and instant awareness of universal truths.

Now, if you ask a physicist about how a photon experiences time, you will find that light particles do not experience time at all. The light that you see coming from the sun has not aged since the beginning of time! The Light in the next world is the same way. When we assume a material form, we are essentially light slowed down (and this is from a physics/relativity perspective). We are Spirit slowed down, experiencing time. And in between our material manifestations we are in the timeless dimension. Our astral selves are separate entities. But ultimately we become one with the timeless Light from whence we came - that is the ultimate cycle of all the cycles.

So when we are in a life threatening situation such as a car accident and every thing goes into slow motion , so it seems , then what I am reading in your post says that we are essentially on the verge of reentering the timeless spirit world where things haven't slowed down but we essentially are speeded up ....

Hi Garry,

It could be that the slowed down time experienced in life threatening situations is a preparation for entry into the timeless dimension. I am only familiar with the difference between experiencing the infinite light and experiencing normal time in which we are now communicating.

Here is another situation. When I meditate and reconnect with the infinite Light/timeless dimension, information is conferred to me instantaneously. But when I try to explain it I run into trouble. Frustrated I say to myself, it seemed so clear. Why is it taking so long to explain? Why so complicated and wordy? Because it is slowed down here.

I think Source "lives" in the Unmanifested without matter around, but with lots of information around. Personally, I envision Source as like a bubbling cauldron of experience, like the surface of the sun. There are these huge loops of coronal mass ejection all over the place. They spew out and then return to the Source. These would be our lives. In our lives, time seems and IS real, but if you are looking at this big kaleidoscope sun-like consciousness cauldron -if you are standing off to the side- all sense of time would be meaningless because you are in the Unmanifested Space looking at the Information space pumping out timelines/lives.

The Creation is decaying under the weight of sin and that is felt as time passing. Dnix71

Decoding the theological dogmatic like expression into psychology we would have the following message= The notion of time does not exist alone per si. People suffering from guilt feeling for having broken cosmic laws will tend to experience time coping with a slow motion like dramatic movie for time goes slow for those who suffer. Is that what you have in mind, Dnix?

Lack of time for me was not noticed. But as I consider with my heart not mind I think time is there and meaningful but measured differently. As with the increased vibrations you could expect a host of Physics blown away. Leaving the place we call home to deal with these complex and intelligent bodies is hard work. I have trouble with time since I woke up. It slips by really fast for me. As I worry less of the outcome of my choices and attached to the outcome I feel it speed up even more.

Hi Arrow. Which way do you mean? When you are intellectualizing and thinking about worldy outcome, time is fast? Or when you are peaceful, centered, and in karma yoga (proper work regardless of thanks/outcome), time goes fast?

I have been wondering this recently. "Time flies when you are having fun" is the old phrase. So, if you in the moment, fully present yet without mental chatter (as Tolle would say), will you subjectively feel the time, the year, going by fast or slow?

Dear Misha (my father´s name was also Misha)


think that there is psychological time. When we are happy time seems to pass too quickly because we want to keep on doing what we do like.
When we are bored, we want the event to end, and we start focusing on time, and it seems as though time doesn´t pass.

Maybe for company?
If I'm a music teacher and my student gets better and better, and then they get their own musical ideas, they become a peer and 'fun to jam with'. At least that's how I view it. Companionship. I think a long time ago, there was a Loving Unity, and that Unity decided to Individuate in order to get more experiences. It was in an NDE i read a couple years back. Too bad I don't recall which one but it was REALLY deep.

that was the best explanation in human words for us simple people I have ever heard
The main difficulty I have is understanding why God would do this
This part is really easy to explain

if as it says some where in the Bible

1 day to God
is
like a 1000 years on earth which equals 365 days *1000= ( 365,000 of our days )

We are here for an average of 75 years which = ( 27,365 of our days )

so therefore 365000 Days / 27365 Days = 13.3 % of a God Day

13.3 % of 24 hours = 3.19 hours in relationship to a day up there


So really all it boils down to is that we have gone to an amusement park for a 3 hour stretch of fun and enjoyment


So

Are we having any fun yet ?

This is always interesting topic and there has been some very good expressions.

During my experience, I didn’t move or experience an absence of time, rather for a time I experienced an absence of what our consciousness of time here is. A person who experiences an event like a NDE has expressed they moved faster than time, became time or were beyond time represented as light. It wasn’t absent, just not relative because we don’t know any other conscious understanding of only what we associate presently. We have difficulty in our relativity because we compare or base our understanding to us rather than us to it. So, the concept of time isn’t man made, it’s our relationship of time that’s man made. We've created purposes that benefit our species.

In my experience, I was shown everything in the cosmos has a form of consciousness based on its time and place. We assume self centered again, that human beings are the only species or entities capable of a conscious. So if these elements don’t have a conscious or awareness, how does it know what, when or how to bond with other elements to create, recreate or incarnate into the forms they do? As for consciousness, this is created when vibration takes form. The form of that consciousness is relative to its time of purpose. Time and consciousness has an endless amount of forms of expression.

I think what’s important is to establish from what conception are we observing time through. We generally associate our measure to it from this present time, with our present capacities and consciousness. So when we determine values, it’s always been relative to ourselves then outward. So we are in a manner still centering time from ourselves. Time has become a paradigm due to how it’s expanded our capacities, technology, knowledge and understanding to significant shifts of our consciousness.

This actually makes sense to me, based on this section of your posting :

Code: Select all

rather for a time I experienced an absence of what our consciousness of time here is.

I see it like this, from a scientific point of view : space-time exists and the void is there, full of energy. Sometimes "particles" emerge from the void and disappear immediatly, you could say they pop in into the "material world" and "time", live there a very short time and disappear. Our space and time could well be such a bubble/particle that popped out from the void into material being for existing some time and will disappear also after a while.
Everything exists for eternity behind the curtain of the void and as quantum physics tells us sometimes something "real" pops out of this void into "reality" for just a blimp of a time fraction .....
We are in the bubble of space-time but when we die our spirit goes into the eternal void again with full consciousness because it comes from there and returns. So will space-time do in its totality at some point ?
When on earth our spirit is in the material body but it still continues to exist at the same time in the eternal spiritual world, here on earth we are the shadow of our spirit but/and we forget all about it until death.
The void is the totality of information, it is there for all time, living on earth is gaining information, is manipulating information like a computer does, so that takes time ... up there in spirit world information is directly disponible, no time needed.
It's like making a car, the idea is there, the planning, the info and then we start working on it until the result is we can see the car, but the idea was always there, the virtual spirit car was there in spirit form, it just took time to make it in the material world.
Jesus, how fascinating it all is and will be !

you could say we are here on this material world to joyfully "play" with material things and to create material things just like a child is playing making sand castles out of his imagination.
In spirit world we also play but here we make something out of nothing you could say. We manipulate matter and learn how to do it because it is a new experience.
As I can understand, in spiritual world you want to "make" a beautifull house ? it is there immediatly, no action_reaction involved, no time, but space ?
So here on earth we learn also about dialectic action-reaction of our material doings, action-reaction = time ....

A very interesting way of putting it: thank you, sunlionspirit :)

All I can add is that we do get the opportunity, here in the material world bubble to play with space and time too, which can be very exciting when it comes to setting goals, as experiencing both time and the absence of time, at the same time, can give you even more motivation to accomplish tasks which might otherwise appear boring, farfetched or even impossible. I believe I might have mentioned this particular experience somewhere, but if I haven't I will come back and report it here. I have always been fascinated about travelling backwards and forwards in time (and space), by the way. ;)

I believe I might have mentioned this particular experience somewhere, but if I haven't I will come back and report it here. I have always been fascinated about travelling backwards and forwards in time (and space), by the way. ;)
Here is an account of the experience I was referring to. It happened almost ten years ago.

On that morning, as I emerged one night from sleep, I found myself simultaneously both inside and outside of time. This extraordinary awakening (in all senses) took place at dawn on 23 May 2008.

At the time, I worked as a full-time translator for a number of translation agencies, and I often had to catch up on my work at night. That particular night, I had gone to bed knowing I had 14 pages to translate by 7 am the next morning. In ordinary waking reality, this would have meant getting up at least four or five hours before my deadline, in the early hours of the morning. But I also had numerous other things on my mind. Earlier that evening, my car engine had almost burnt out because of a leak in the radiator. With the car broken down, I was unable to pick up my 11-year-old son from the gym. It was 7 pm and all the shops and petrol stations were closing. This and a series of other difficulties meant I had to move the translation down my list of priorities that evening.

Anyway, at around 4.30 am I was still in bed and already three hours behind schedule. I was in a twilight state of consciousness, when I started experiencing a lucid awareness of being simultaneously in time and ‘out of time’. Only an hour earlier, I am sure I would have gone mad if I had tried to get into this state of consciousness. Yet, there I was, able to hold both notions in my mind at the same time, with no effort and no urge to shift from one state to the other.

Anything I wanted to do had both not happened yet and, simultaneously, had already happened. The reason I did not need to shift from one perspective to the other was that both realities were true for me at the same time.

Lingering in this amazing state of consciousness for quite a while, I concentrated my thoughts on various situations in my life and realised that whatever goal I had in mind, it would take no effort to achieve it. This was because, in the ‘bigger time’ in which I was immersed, it had already happened. Even the 14 pages I had to translate, the thought of which would normally have made me leap out of bed in a state of panic, had already been translated and in ideal circumstances.

This extraordinary state of awareness was followed by a dream brimming with positive outcomes, practical situations that I could see and examine in vivid detail. In each scenario it was clear to me that luck is merely a facet of life that occurs once we have learnt to apply the secret of ‘big time’. At the time, this concept was closely linked to what I had been studying for years regarding what is widely known today as the ‘law of attraction’.

The feelings and ideas that followed on that very challenging morning, were:

A) It is possible to have access at any time to the ‘big time’ in which our goals have already been reached.
B) I experienced a great sense of relaxation and the ability to take things easy, since no mental effort is required to achieve something that has already happened.
C) I felt a renewed wave of vital energy coming from the awareness that any goal that has already been set, no matter how farfetched, has already manifested in ‘big time’, and that the small linear time we experience only exists to give us a sense of achievement.

Needless to say, my translation work flowed smoothly that morning, taking much less time than it normally would - and, happily, the agency I was working for had set my deadline well in advance of the time they actually needed it.

This was my greatest breakthrough since I had started challenging the concept of linear time.

How did I challenge it? At first, in perhaps a somewhat childish way, delaying commitments that were important or boring, but which absolutely had to be completed by a certain date or time. When I went to school, for example, although I always had good grades, I usually stopped studying a specific topic altogether, once I had been tested on it. This meant that, time and time again, I found myself having to read chapter upon chapter in one sitting the day before the next test. I even remember spending just a single night swotting up for a university exam.

After that, I began to imagine the existence of parallel or alternative lives, which I had the opportunity to verify through vivid dreams, lucid dreams and out-of-body experiences.

Lastly, I sought out concrete opportunities to stop time. In fact, a few months earlier, I had already experienced the sensation of time slowing down while I was engrossed in pleasant activities (which is practically the complete opposite of what normally happens). It is commonly said that ‘time flies when you’re having fun’. Yet, as but one example, I recall being in an art class, enjoying the process of oil painting, when time seemed to stand still, allowing me to bask in the joy of the moment.

With this direct experience, I felt I had gained a tremendously powerful tool I could use to achieve anything. I could experience personally how wonderful our creative power is. Now, whenever I have a particular goal, I only have to recall that awareness to know that it has already been achieved.

Therefore, I believe it is extremely important to set goals when we feel we are in a dynamic, creative frame of mind, and to allow our own power to guide us.

I still feel that contemplative states of mind are just as valuable, as long as we truly feel contemplative in that moment. However, goal-setting seems to be one of those key skills we learn in the ‘here and now’.

A few thoughts came to mind when I saw the above.

(1) Is it possible that premonitions or intuitions operate from glimpsing of "big time" (intentional or inadvertent)? That is, when one is in doubt concerning the choice or path to take, then if one concentrates and intuits a glimpse into the future of an event that has already happened, then in small/linear time one chooses the direction or makes choices leading to the "done deal" future event, achievement or accomplishment.

(2) Could "done deal futures" be what's behind the classic NDE "Go Back, it is not your time" (ie, one needs to return to physical earth life to suitably meet up with what has already been completed [as per a priori agreed] in some event matrix consisting of "all-that-is") ?

(3) Could it be that people who experience what is termed "a life crisis" are really being affected by an inevitable destiny that (ultimately) must be fulfilled ?


Perhaps in this sense we are all actors on an earth (spacetime) stage, experiencing an a priory agreed upon destiny.

Could this be what co-creation (material world building) is all about ?

It comes as a total surprise
That what we learn from the ψ’s
Not the fate of the cat
But related to that :
The best we can ever surmise.

Hi, Rey. Based on my own experience, such as one of those listed in my signature, there may be certain creative/action triggering factors that we are aware of 'beyond' physical life and 'beyond' time. However, in this experience

OBE - A Visit from the Future

in which I obviously got a really accurate glimpse about future events several years ahead of time, there did not appear to be anything inevitable about the life-crisis aspect of it. It was quite the opposite: I realised how powerful our free will is. Again, in that case, there appeared to be one event set in stone (Lucy's marriage), but the rest of the saga had to be played by ear, and it was thanks to Lucy's and her husband's firm determination that things took the turn they did.

Maybe the time of our transition to spirit is one of those events that are set in stone, as in the case of NDErs who are told it is not their time yet. Maybe we are not supposed to know what that time is, because from our physical ego's point of view it would rob us of our creative power.

For instance, spiritualist William Thomas Stead, who died as a result of the Titanic disaster, had many precognitive visions about the sinking of the Titanic (http://whitecrowbooks.com/features/page ... chael_tymn, http://whitecrowbooks.com/michaeltymn/e ... ars_later/) but the only vision he had about his own death had to do with being kicked to death in the street by a mob: I always felt this was symbolic of the way sceptics treat after-death communicators).

IMHO, I believe I was granted that absence-of-time experience as a reminder that we are powerful creative beings when we set our goals from a loving and proactive standpoint, but I still feel we are multidimentional beings who are given many more opportunities than we realise and that the NOW is definitely the place where the greatest creative power lies.

I am really curious about what other members think about this thought-provoking topic.

Very and one of the most interesting questions about afterlife !!
For me, I think it is a misunderstanding to think that there is NO time in afterlife, there is just another kind of "time" !
Let me explain : everything here in this realm of earthly life is in movement everywhere (planets, particles, our bodies ... ) so movement/evolution IS with "timing" ... but you can have all kinds of "time" ... is there "movement" in afterlife ? no matter so no movement but in afterlife well there is ( as we can hear from experiencers ) some kind of evolution, we can study and acceed to other levels of consciousness = means there is time going over it ..... we can expect the arrival of other souls or the apparition or departure of them all around us ... we can choose to prepare another "materialisation on earth/reincarnation" so there goes time over it to prepare and discuss about it and then leave the spiritual world .... a soul can wait or attend for incarnation untill the mother it did choose is ready for birthgiving ( see NDE stories telling that kind of event ) ... so there is some other kind of time but because up there in afterlife we do not need to hurry at all we do not NEED time ! just as like you are on a splendid holliday at the beach of some paradise island you do not feel time passing by .... also there is no day or night in spiritual world, no need for sleep as I can understand, no need for food, no need for taking a flight ...
So yes there is some kind/another kind of time but because all is in the NOW moment that is infinite, time is also infinite in the NOW moment and if you want to experience it, manipulate it, you focus on it and it will be there for you to decide what to do in the NOW .... time is you, you are the time !!! here on earth we are NOT the time, we are split from it, still yes in the NOW moment ( in fact no past, no future ) but having an illusion of time passing by and we depending of it ! because we need and planned it that way otherwise our "material" world can not be realised, can not function, matter needs time to be matter !! my body needs time to become a adult but the atoms of my body are eternal because they are just energy.
Time as we know it is only in relation to matter, no matter/mass no time .....
So in afterlife lots of experiencers see their life revue : all at once, in a blink, no time involved, and yet they can focus in every possible moment of that life and re-experience that moment .... in fact they plunge again in that "virtual time moment" and become again a split spirit by just observing that moment so becoming a body again in just that moment ....
so you could well say that the "life-review" they see up there is the life they live at the SAME time here on earth but seeing it with their spiritual being always being in "heaven" ... me spirit up there following me ego body down here but during NDE being CONSCIOUS of me up there following me down here from up there .........
So up there I am the guide of my ego down here, I myself am my own angel here on earth ....
jeezes, who can say .......
If I have to live this earthly life to experience what real suffering is, then I prefer to die to experience what real living is.

Maybe in the next life the consequences of your thoughts are instant and therefore irreversible. We have time here so we can learn and change.

Many of the NDE's report if you wanted to see someone all you had to do was think about them. If you wanted a prop (like a bench to sit on) all you had to do was think it and it was so. Instant gratification in this life leads to trouble.
yes but if you make a "bad" choice up there you can also directly change and make a new better choice, focus on something better ... while in this life you have more time maybe to "decide" but if it is a bad voluntary choice once you decide it is irrevocable ! you decide to drink and drive ? accident ? you are left with the consequences .... you cannot make a new better choice here ...... this life "sucks" by all ways ..... you are lost with your choices ...... until death comes upon you ......

I really think the people wanting to come back here on earth in material body ( reincarnation ) are just poor little souls ( MYSELF INCLUDED !!! ) who just want to live (again) a very EGO life with very selfish content, just because their spiritual evolution is still somewhat primitiv ....
just like wanting to look at a porn video knowing it is not so good but doing it anyways because well ...... or drinking too much because well we like the after-effects ..... or smoking a cigaret .... I speak also for myself !! yes sure ! sometimes we want to be/be again a horrible selfish greedy gourmand ego not paying attention to the others ..... hup and here we are again in this life learning again the lesson that this is all superficial ..... in fact we permit ourselves to descend to the "lower" levels of existence yes because this earth is a so beautiful fantastic creation but we are absolutely not ready yet to master this creation ! and that is the problem !!! one day we will, it will be heaven on earth yes it wil !! all the benefits of spirit life and all the ones of material world !
how do I know ? well I don't .... just feels like that .....

All I can add is that we do get the opportunity, here in the material world bubble to play with space and time too, which can be very exciting when it comes to setting goals, as experiencing both time and the absence of time, at the same time, can give you even more motivation to accomplish tasks which might otherwise appear boring, farfetched or even impossible. I believe I might have mentioned this particular experience somewhere, but if I haven't I will come back and report it here. I have always been fascinated about travelling backwards and forwards in time (and space), by the way. ;)
Here is an account of the experience I was referring to. It happened almost ten years ago.

On that morning, as I emerged one night from sleep, I found myself simultaneously both inside and outside of time. This extraordinary awakening (in all senses) took place at dawn on 23 May 2008.

At the time, I worked as a full-time translator for a number of translation agencies, and I often had to catch up on my work at night. That particular night, I had gone to bed knowing I had 14 pages to translate by 7 am the next morning. In ordinary waking reality, this would have meant getting up at least four or five hours before my deadline, in the early hours of the morning. But I also had numerous other things on my mind. Earlier that evening, my car engine had almost burnt out because of a leak in the radiator. With the car broken down, I was unable to pick up my 11-year-old son from the gym. It was 7 pm and all the shops and petrol stations were closing. This and a series of other difficulties meant I had to move the translation down my list of priorities that evening.

Anyway, at around 4.30 am I was still in bed and already three hours behind schedule. I was in a twilight state of consciousness, when I started experiencing a lucid awareness of being simultaneously in time and ‘out of time’. Only an hour earlier, I am sure I would have gone mad if I had tried to get into this state of consciousness. Yet, there I was, able to hold both notions in my mind at the same time, with no effort and no urge to shift from one state to the other.

Anything I wanted to do had both not happened yet and, simultaneously, had already happened. The reason I did not need to shift from one perspective to the other was that both realities were true for me at the same time.

Lingering in this amazing state of consciousness for quite a while, I concentrated my thoughts on various situations in my life and realised that whatever goal I had in mind, it would take no effort to achieve it. This was because, in the ‘bigger time’ in which I was immersed, it had already happened. Even the 14 pages I had to translate, the thought of which would normally have made me leap out of bed in a state of panic, had already been translated and in ideal circumstances.

This extraordinary state of awareness was followed by a dream brimming with positive outcomes, practical situations that I could see and examine in vivid detail. In each scenario it was clear to me that luck is merely a facet of life that occurs once we have learnt to apply the secret of ‘big time’. At the time, this concept was closely linked to what I had been studying for years regarding what is widely known today as the ‘law of attraction’.

The feelings and ideas that followed on that very challenging morning, were:

A) It is possible to have access at any time to the ‘big time’ in which our goals have already been reached.
B) I experienced a great sense of relaxation and the ability to take things easy, since no mental effort is required to achieve something that has already happened.
C) I felt a renewed wave of vital energy coming from the awareness that any goal that has already been set, no matter how farfetched, has already manifested in ‘big time’, and that the small linear time we experience only exists to give us a sense of achievement.

Needless to say, my translation work flowed smoothly that morning, taking much less time than it normally would - and, happily, the agency I was working for had set my deadline well in advance of the time they actually needed it.

This was my greatest breakthrough since I had started challenging the concept of linear time.

How did I challenge it? At first, in perhaps a somewhat childish way, delaying commitments that were important or boring, but which absolutely had to be completed by a certain date or time. When I went to school, for example, although I always had good grades, I usually stopped studying a specific topic altogether, once I had been tested on it. This meant that, time and time again, I found myself having to read chapter upon chapter in one sitting the day before the next test. I even remember spending just a single night swotting up for a university exam.

After that, I began to imagine the existence of parallel or alternative lives, which I had the opportunity to verify through vivid dreams, lucid dreams and out-of-body experiences.

Lastly, I sought out concrete opportunities to stop time. In fact, a few months earlier, I had already experienced the sensation of time slowing down while I was engrossed in pleasant activities (which is practically the complete opposite of what normally happens). It is commonly said that ‘time flies when you’re having fun’. Yet, as but one example, I recall being in an art class, enjoying the process of oil painting, when time seemed to stand still, allowing me to bask in the joy of the moment.

With this direct experience, I felt I had gained a tremendously powerful tool I could use to achieve anything. I could experience personally how wonderful our creative power is. Now, whenever I have a particular goal, I only have to recall that awareness to know that it has already been achieved.

That's a really amazing dissertation on time, sunlionspirit :) There is a book you might actually enjoy on the topic, unless you have already come across it. It was written by John L. Brooker, and it is called If Heaven Is So Wonderful … Why Come Here? How to Discover Our “Whole Being” (Blue Dolphin Publishing, Inc, 2004). Basically it says that our real point of power is always NOW and that we are already reaping the benefits of past, present and future. The feeling one gets is really motivating and energising.

Last night on C2C during "open lines", host Dave Schrader told how once when he and his son were driving in the family car on an icy road, the car spun out of control, skidded into the road side ditch then bounded back onto the road dangerously into the path of on-coming traffic. Ultimately, no one was seriously hurt, and the whole incident couldnt have lasted much more than maybe 10 seconds. However, during that brief time interval, Dave related how he was able to have a whole (and rather deep) conversation or series of communication exchanges with his son regarding the unfolding situation. Dave stated that the level and degree of communication and exchange which took place between them in the vehicle during the few seconds that the incident lasted was something that seemed not possible and that it effectively was as if time drastically slowed or maybe even stood still.

Dave attributed the phenomenon to consciousness being forced to focus totally in the "NOW."

While listening to Dave's testimony, I couldnt help thinking about material from David R. Hawkins' "Power vs Force" discussion on "Characteristics of Pure Consciousness".

Hawkins reminds that the reciprocal of Rene Descartes' famous phrase, "I think therefore I am," is "I am, therefore I think."

"Because thinking takes place as form, Decartes is correct; that which has form must already have existence in order to have form. "I am" is a statement of awareness, witnessing that the capacity for experience is independent of form. Descartes implies that consciousness is only aware of itself when it assumes form. But the enlightened throughout history have disagreed, customarily stating that consciousness is beyond form and is, indeed, the very omnipotent matrix out of which form arises. Modern physicists concur, for example, David Bohm's concept of an "enfolded" versus "unfolded" universe.

Without consciousness, there would be nothing to experience form. It could also be said that form itself, as a product of perception with no independent existence, is thus transitory and limited, whereas consciousness is all-encompassing and unlimited. How could that which is transitory, with a clear beginning and ending, create that which is formless, all-encompassing and omnipresent ? However, if we see that the notion of limitation itself is merely a product of perception with no intrinsic reality, then the riddle solves itself: form becomes an expression of the formless. Ontologically, consciousness is an aspect of "Is-ness" and "Being-ness" and is implicit in human's definition of their self as human. Human-ness is only one expression of being-ness.


One characteristic of the experience of pure consciousness is a perception of timelessness (or timelessness of perception). Consciousness is experienced as beyond all form and time and seen everywhere equally present. It is described as "Is-ness' or "Being-ness" and in the spiritual literature as "I-am-ness." Consciousness does not recognize separation, which is the consequence of a limitation of perception. The enlightened state is of a "Oneness" in which there is no division into separate parts. Such division is only apparent from a localized perception; it is really only incidental to a fixed point of view.
"

Hi, Rey.

The incident reported at C2C is really interesting and reminds me of another one which I did not get to report last time I wrote on the topic.

When my husband was about three years old, he almost drowned. As he was drowning he started seeing pictures from his very short life, experiences he could not remember at the time. He was then saved and forgot about it. In his late 20s he was parachuting and his main parachute did not open. At that point he started seeing the very same pictures he had seen when he was drowning as a child and realised he was in a life threatening situation (of course the whole thing happened in a matter of seconds). He realised that the ambulance and the people on the landing area were all rushing towards the point where he was expected to land, he could ‘hear’ their thoughts and decided he needed to open the safety parachute. He had ‘all the time’ to notice these things and think about the situation: he pulled the steel device required to open the safety parachute with such strength that if broke (I guess that had to do with adrenaline). Anyway the second parachute opened and he was not injured. This is another instance of time stopping which I have a first-hand account of.

Thanks for the Hawkins reference. A really interesting read. :)

I am looking for peoples input on Absence of Time .

That to me has got to be the most unique thing I can ever imagine.

When we are alive , are we moving at such a slow vibration to when we pass on . so many people speak of people waiting for them when they pass , but if there is no such thing as time how can you be waiting for someone.

Id like to hear other people opinions regarding the absence of time and see where the discussion leads.

I myself cant put the concept of " Absense of Time " into words that make sence to me as we are all controlled and manipulated by " Time " and other people who " Have control Of our Time "

In my world ( life ) like many other people Time, has become a Thing that is used to gauge our life

[list=1]Pay by the hour
How long does it take to get there
You have so many hours to complete a study coarse
you have an appointment at a certain time[/list]

and the list goes on and on !!!!!!!!

After reading all of the stories on nderf.org about peoples experences the one part of the experence that really intrigues me is the absece of time .

We all know that TIME is a man made thing to account for the rotation of the earth to create day and night and to account for the rotation around the sun that creates the various seasons.

I would like to share a very wonderful poem by Robert Hastings that has been the guiding principal of my life since I found it

Eccles 9:12


The Station

[centre]"Relish the moment" is a good motto, especially when coupled with Psalm 118:24 ,
"This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."[/centre]
Throughout my NDE, I could still remember the events of my past and sensed the flow of TIME passing me by. Everything happened sequentially, one event followed another, just like it does with linear time on Earth. Yet TIME became purely subjective, for I was in the land where the clocks don't tick. After death, time takes on a very different perspective. There are no clocks in the spirit world and the level of light in each sphere is always the same, thus eliminating the day/ night cycle. I could travel great distances at the speed of thought, which is faster than the speed of light, so the time taken to move from point A to point B became irrelevant.
After death, people don't worry about time. You don't need to find the time to sleep or to wash and take care of your body. You don't need to find the time to buy and prepare food. You don't need to go to work in order to earn a living. You don't need to clean your home or wash your clothes. People create things out of thin air by using their thoughts, which is so much faster than creating on Earth. Everyone has more time on their hands than they could possibly need, so the issue of TIME never enters the equation. Just like before death, if you are happy or excited, time seems to fly past you. If you are bored or sad, time seems to drag along. If you are in love, time stands still.

Re: Absence of Time

Post by Malcolm » Sat Jan 05, 2019 4:57 pm

Time became a subjective thing for me during my NDE, meaning the way I experienced time depended entirely on how I felt at the time. There were times when time seemed to fly straight past me, appearing non-existent, while at other times, time seemed to drag along at a snail’s pace. Time in reality is an illusion; both before and after death. The word afterlife is essentially an oxymoron. The term “afterlife” suggests that your life comes to an end at your death, but nothing could be further from the truth. The illusion of time suggests that we are moving in a linear fashion from birth to death, but after death, time doesn’t continue to move in a straight line from earth to heaven.

When we die we are set free from the illusion of time. Time and space are figments of the human imagination and don’t exist in ultimate reality, neither before death nor after it. The afterlife has been designed by cosmic intelligence to gradually replace our perception of time with a sense of timelessness. After death the boundaries of space start stretching out to infinity. Constructing an orderly chronological sequence of the actual events of my experience was difficult for me to achieve, because on the other side there was no such thing as linear time, instead time became purely subjective.

Time and space don't exist in reality, but multiple possibilities do exist for us at all times. Everything is happening simultaneously, yet it’s possible to experience events as if they are happening in isolation. All things are there before we see them and every possibility exists right now. A number of possible future outcomes are always at play; it’s simply a matter of what you choose to look at.

You may think that this quantum physics stuff is all very good in theory, but stop and think about it for a minute. The only reason time exists for you is because your mind has a memory. Without a memory, you would not be able to perceive events happening in sequence. If you didn't have a memory, each new experience would erase the last, and so, it would seem as if the old never happened. There would only be now, which is all there ever is, ever was, and ever will be. The only reason before and after exists for us is because of our ability to memorize events sequentially. We experience time because we have a memory that is capable of placing our perceptions in a chronological order, but that does not mean before and after exist out there in a finite time line. Before and after can only exist within your mind, not outside of it.

Amazingly, we all knew all of this before we incarnated into the physical world with an induced sense of amnesia. The concept of time is merely a figment of the human imagination. Time and space are elements of mental relativity. All of your experiences in life are created by your perspective or what you choose to look at, or which way you choose to move through the space/time continuum.

Time is just a construct that creates the illusion of events occurring sequentially, but in reality everything is happening simultaneously. The past and future are happening now, not before or after. And it’s all happening right where you are, not somewhere else. Everything is really happening all at once, but, things seem to happen in sequence.

Time is a constant, not a movement. Time never moves. It is us who are moving, not time. Now that I understand this, I live my life more peacefully within the illusion, where I along with seven billion others experience time as a movement or a flow, rather than a constant. And because time has no movement, the only moment is now. Now is the only moment there ever was and it is the only moment there will ever be. Linear time is simply a reflection of how we perceive change.

If you boarded a rocket and flew far enough fast enough, you could swing back around towards the earth and actually watch yourself taking off. Our scientists have already proved this, which clearly demonstrates that time is not a movement, but a field through which we are all moving, in our particular case on planet earth. If you somehow developed a way to propel yourself even faster, you could return to earth before you even took off. If you somehow found a way to go even faster than that, if enough propulsion was somehow available to you, upon returning to earth you may have aged a year or two, while your friends on earth may have aged 10 or even 20. The further you go, the more you would warp the space/time continuum and the less likelihood of finding your friends alive when you returned. Say you came across a fold in the fabric of space or the thing that our scientists have called a black hole, then you would suddenly be propelled across space, flinging you back in time.

Time is simply mankind’s way of quantifying eternity. We have divided timelessness into increments, large and small, all constructed by our imaginations. We have made up the rules of time as we have deemed appropriate, by chopping eternity up into bits and pieces to create years, days, hours, minutes and seconds.

And how exactly have we created the concept of time? We started creating the illusion a long time ago when we decided that a day is the time it takes for our planet to make one complete revolution on its axis. And how did we know that the earth made such a spin? We chose the brightest object in the sky as a reference point and concluded that it takes a day for any particular portion of the earth to face it, turn away from it and face it again. Later on we divided a day into 24 units, which we called hours. We could just have easily divided a day into 14, 26, 38, 46 or even 52 units, but for some reason we decided on 24. I have no idea why we settled on the number 24. Let me know if you do. Later we divided each hour into 60 smaller units, which we called minutes. After that we divided each minute into 60 even smaller units, which we called seconds.

We also noticed that the earth was not only spinning on its axis but it was flying through space as well. We saw that it was moving around the sun, and calculated that it took 365 revolutions on its axis for the earth to revolve around the sun. This number of earth spins we called a year, which we then divided up into 12 months because that was the number of lunar cycles we observed our moon completing in a year. But we couldn’t find a way to divide 365 days into 12 months evenly, so we decided to fix the problem by simply adjusting the number of days in each month. By reconciling three celestial events - revolutions of the earth around the sun, spins of the earth on its axis and cycles of the moon - we have created the concept of time. But this system created a problem because our earlier inventions kept creating a build-up of time, which we didn’t quite know how to fix. So we just invented something out of the blue to solve the dilemma by deciding that every so often, one year would have a whole day more than the others, which we called a leap year. Along the way we have also bundled years into periods of decades and centuries and millennia. Interestingly with these, we have divided into metric units of 10, not 12 or 24 or 60.

What we have been doing all along is merely devising a way to count the movement of the earth through space. Over the centuries we have constructed the concept of time, which clearly demonstrates that time is simply a figment of the human imagination. It's not time that's passing, but it is us who are passing through and moving around in a static field, which we call space. Our scientists now understand this connection and have concluded that time is nothing more than a mental construction. Time is a relational concept because it is relative to the distance between objects.

The universe is expanding at the rate of speed we cannot imagine. Therefore, it takes longer for the earth to revolve around the sun today than it did 1000 years ago. Our sophisticated timing instruments now record this time discrepancy and every year clocks around the world are adjusted to accommodate a universe that refuses to sit still. This reconciliation system we have called Greenwich Mean Time.

Time does not exist except as a construction of mentality. Yesterday and tomorrow are figments of the human imagination but are non-existent in ultimate reality. Everything that has ever happened, as well as everything that is ever going to happen, is all happening now. The ability to observe a thing depends on your point of view. And while you are centred in the world of souls, you can see all of it, all the time, right where you are.

Time exists vertically, not horizontally. Time is not a line that runs from birth to death for each individual. It doesn’t start at some finite point and end at another finite point. Time is an up and down thing, not a left to right thing. Imagine the moments of time as sheets of paper, stacked on top of one another on a paper spike. Each sheet of paper represents a moment in time. The piece of paper that you are on represents your experience in the eternal moment of now. The paper never moves anywhere. All the moments in time are ever present. The time it is for you merely dependent on which piece of paper you are on; your place in space.

We created the illusion of time, then quantum physics arrived on the scene and shattered the illusion. Along came Einstein, Bohr and the like, saying, “God didn’t just roll out the universe minute-by-minute, inch-by-inch.” Einstein declared that time is relative, meaning it has no absolute value, and that the very idea of space-time is a wrong idea. According to Einstein, time and space are conditional, and if you see yourself bound in them, you lose touch with reality and buy into fiction. Time and space do not exist but are merely products of our five senses. Linear time is superficial, along with everything happening in it.

Thanks largely to Einstein and co, a timeless field of constant transformation replaced the old linear model. The idea of time expanding and contracting has allowed for more accurate calculations of various phenomena by our physicists. But these calculations say nothing about the practicality of time measured on a watch. A watch doesn’t lie about how much time has elapsed out there. But subjective time is a totally different thing to linear time. After death, time becomes subjective. Subjective time exists inside of you, not out there like linear time. Subjective time is the mirror that reflects your state of being. Much depends on your attitude. When you are bored, time hangs heavily. When you are excited, time seems to fly. When you’re in love, time stands still.

That to me has got to be the most unique thing I can ever imagine.

When we are alive , are we moving at such a slow vibration to when we pass on . so many people speak of people waiting for them when they pass , but if there is no such thing as time how can you be waiting for someone.
-------------------

Vibration, waiting, moving is always connected to time. But timelessness = immutability.

Here I am writing down: Garry. This sentence is immutable, for eternty, and timeless, fixed in it's core.

Good morning everyone. Thought I would put in my 2 cents. I don't understand this absence of time everyone speaks about, as well as many out there. If there is not time & everything happens at the same "time", past, present, future, then we would be stationary, would we not?

On the other side, we report going thru a tunnel (takes time), meeting with loved ones (also takes time), etc....I think perhaps it's the quality of time that is different. We could be "dead" here on earth for a few minutes, whereas being on the other side we experience what we would classify as days or months, in regards to the amount experienced while we were there. So perhaps it is more compressed over there, when compared to our time on earth? Time there is filled with more things being done than time here....sluggish earth time where things can seem to speed up or slow down, dependent on what you are experiencing at the time.

Or as someone earlier pointed out, it could just be our perception of time. Since we are excited to be there, with all the love & safety etc., perhaps it "feels" like it is going so fast because we don't want it to end, just as a fun thing we do here where we don't want it to end....so everything feels like it's sped up.

That's my thinking anyway....thanks everyone!!

Hi, Lucianna. I tend to think along the same lines, especially since I had that experience of being in time and out of time at the same time, which I mentioned in this thread. What really makes me wonder about the existence of different timelines is when we lose a loved one to death and wonder what he or she may be doing while we are here in our Here & Now timeline.

Some seem to find it easier to think people are so busy on the other side that they may not have time for us. Having challenged that notion by visiting the other side and receiving visits from the other side, I have come to the conclusion that we are multidimensional beings and that we have some experiences that do not reach us at a conscious level, but may reach us later on. Ever since I opened up to this possibility, I started receiving memories of glimpses of experiences I might have had (such as shared death experiences). This is all so fascinating...

Good morning,

I have read & heard different things that we do on the other side. They range from learning, planning our next lives, helping others, even just flying around playing harps, lol. How boring if flying around playing a harp was all there was. I have also heard some people say they r fishing (example) but not actually fishing. They r trying to convey that they r doing something they would enjoy, like when they fished on earth.

Dad had suffered after passing in regards to all the cruel & selfish things he had done in life, as well as people speaking ill of him AFTER he had passed. Which is a note to us, we really should not speak ill of the dead but that's another topic. Just suffice to say here that having seen my dad, I understand now that it doesn't stop after we cross over. We judge ourselves & what we have done, after we pass over, feeling the hurt done to others. We don't need to keep reliving it every time someone speaks ill of us, when we r on the other side.

One evening a higher being present himself to me, in one of my "lucid dreams", who pleaded with me to talk to my mother as she needed to stop berating my dad. He hid himself once I started to recognize who he was, telling me we were not here for that reason (meaning for me), but for my father. My mother's constant remembering & speaking ill of things that he had done was hindering any progress for my dad on the other side. He showed me my dad in what looked like a straight jacket, in a chair, & inconsolable. That's how hard we judge ourselves & we suffer the hurt done to others.

Have you heard of the dvd as well as book, called Nosso Lar, our home? In it we work for what we get, on the other side. In other words when we have passed, we spend our time helping each other & those recently passed in order to procur things on the other side such as a home. This does liken it to our life here on earth, except good deeds instead of money are the currency there. Not a happy thought for me at the moment, wondering when does the work end, lol?

Later I visited my dad in what I call my "lucid dreams" (could be obes), he was tending a garden that stretched farther than the eye could see. He said he was there because he was having trouble accepting he had passed on. It was helping him to do something he enjoyed in life, planting his tomatoes. It was therapeutic so that's why he was doing it. I knew that this suggestion, the mode of therapy chosen, had not come from him but from higher beings that were looking out for him.

Imho it's basically like earth, except it is quicker in that more can happen on that side in regards to time passing, than on this side. I think I mentioned this earlier....I base that on my own ndes, as well as research. You always hear/experience that in a short span of earth time, you learn so much on the other side. I believe that's why this people say this life is only a 2nd of life on the other side & passes quickly when viewed from there. But then if it passes more quickly on the other side, why did it have such an impact on my dad....in other words, why had what my mum was saying now, immobilized him at that time?

I don't know how to explain it but will try...if our time is a blink of the eye to those on the other side, then why would I have been shown my father suffering in our now time, when it should have already passed in their now time? Is it because my mother still brings up the past (albeit not as often due to my urging), & I am actually seeing him suffering in his future? My now, his future but also his now at the time I was shown? Has this changed due to the lessening of it in our present time, & that triggered the visit to my dad in the garden, whose now time is in the future?

Both the events I speak of are my truth. They were beyond me questioning & I truly believe they r real.

Very difficult to ponder except that this understanding of time alludes my small mind, only giving me a headache, lol. Luv to hear your thoughts....

Just to add, as this has caught me into a loop....perhaps feelings have their own time? Instead of things happening being a blink of an eye to the other side, perhaps feelings run on a different time-line as it is the feelings of hurt or joy that impact us when we r doing our life reviews. Not the deed as much as the feelings they generated from the ones impacted by our actions.....of which both are tied together, yes I realize....but I am wondering if feelings of the person on earth r the catalyst in experiencing time on the side.... that since the person on earth is having difficulties moving on, it causes the soul on the other side to get caught into being unable to move on....like a chain holding them in a time constraint until they r forgiven or the person on earth learns to deal with things so they can move on....in other words, we get stuck because our actions when we were on earth have made the person we hurt stuck as well? Perhaps this slows down our time on the other side & we suffer along, drawing out our timeline or knowledge of time, on the other side.....???

Quantum entanglement may serve here.....perhaps we r entangled, due to our feelings, with each other & until that "dies" or dealt with as well, we both r caught into a type of immobilization, until both can free each other & themselves, from the bonds that r holding us together....so we suffer together, until the time when we both do not suffer....in other words, both sides need to stop actively feeling/move on, in order for both to move on?

I have read many times that a person on earth who has not let go of one who has passed, has tied the departing soul to earth. Is it so hard to go a step beyond & think that our feelings may also affect them once they have crossed over, time apart not making a difference? Could be years but they still r affected by our feelings on earth?

Does our not letting go, our feelings, change their time perception? We all know that when we r enjoying ourselves or having fun, we all experience time "flying". When we r bored, it passes slowly. Perhaps when we r still suffering, as in say my mum, we r tying them into a loop where they suffer as well, & it slows down their time?

We all tend to "forget" our loved ones that passed, little by little things aren't sharp as the day before...perhaps that is what allows them to progress on the other side. By us letting go here, they r free to live life so that our life is a blink of an eye to them....but by not letting go, be it out of luv or anger, etc....based on feelings, we tie them to us & make their time as unbearably slow as it feels to us? R we slowing down their time, by not moving on in our lives due to being tied by our feelings, good or bad?

Looking forward to yur thoughts...stay well!!

Just to add, as this has caught me into a loop....perhaps feelings have their own time? Instead of things happening being a blink of an eye to the other side, perhaps feelings run on a different time-line as it is the feelings of hurt or joy that impact us when we r doing our life reviews. Not the deed as much as the feelings they generated from the ones impacted by our actions.....of which both are tied together, yes I realize....but I am wondering if feelings of the person on earth r the catalyst in experiencing time on the side.... that since the person on earth is having difficulties moving on, it causes the soul on the other side to get caught into being unable to move on....like a chain holding them in a time constraint until they r forgiven or the person on earth learns to deal with things so they can move on....in other words, we get stuck because our actions when we were on earth have made the person we hurt stuck as well? Perhaps this slows down our time on the other side & we suffer along, drawing out our timeline or knowledge of time, on the other side.....???

Quantum entanglement may serve here.....perhaps we r entangled, due to our feelings, with each other & until that "dies" or dealt with as well, we both r caught into a type of immobilization, until both can free each other & themselves, from the bonds that r holding us together....so we suffer together, until the time when we both do not suffer....in other words, both sides need to stop actively feeling/move on, in order for both to move on?

I have read many times that a person on earth who has not let go of one who has passed, has tied the departing soul to earth. Is it so hard to go a step beyond & think that our feelings may also affect them once they have crossed over, time apart not making a difference? Could be years but they still r affected by our feelings on earth?

Does our not letting go, our feelings, change their time perception? We all know that when we r enjoying ourselves or having fun, we all experience time "flying". When we r bored, it passes slowly. Perhaps when we r still suffering, as in say my mum, we r tying them into a loop where they suffer as well, & it slows down their time?

We all tend to "forget" our loved ones that passed, little by little things aren't sharp as the day before...perhaps that is what allows them to progress on the other side. By us letting go here, they r free to live life so that our life is a blink of an eye to them....but by not letting go, be it out of luv or anger, etc....based on feelings, we tie them to us & make their time as unbearably slow as it feels to us? R we slowing down their time, by not moving on in our lives due to being tied by our feelings, good or bad?

Looking forward to yur thoughts...stay well!!
Being that I am the one who started this post a long time ago I feel the need to respond regarding my view on it now, which has changed somewhat from when I first posted.

When I was in a Head-On Collision, time Slowed down and everything was in Slow Motion.
When I had my OBE I have no concept of time from that experience as there was nothing to relate ( Time ) to

I personally no longer believe in (Absence of Time ) but more so in we are living in a certain ( Frequency ) whereas with the correct external stimulation ( a head-on collision ) as an example our conscience is aroused and we are vibrating at an increased frequency to deal with the situation at hand.

Now with that said that is what I believe, but the truth of the matter is, ( That I Don't Care ) anymore as it is what it is and we can't change it. If we were meant to know and understand then we would have that ability, but I am now very content to live out my life and what happens next will be a surprise.
