Cracking the Code of Time

By Deepak Chopra, MD and Robin L. Smith MD

The time has come to have courageous new concepts about time itself. If you wish to make a breakthrough in human lifespan or show the existence of upper consciousness or attain the mysterious area past the bodily universe, all these potentialities require our idea of time to be reshaped in a brand new manner.

Everybody is aware of the outdated ides, which have sufficed moderately nicely till now. Time places occasions so as by trigger and impact. Time measures the gap from delivery to loss of life, for folks and the universe as nicely. Time emerged on the Large Bang, and it has ticked away ever since, for 13.8 billion years.

But as acquainted as these concepts are, human beings have additionally lived with the timeless, a area outdoors creation the place God or the gods exist, the place we would presumably spend an everlasting afterlife. Leaving all religious notions apart, the timeless is perhaps the womb of creation, as a result of time didn’t create itself—one thing like a timeless origin is critical. 

The brand new view of time holds that each points, time and the timeless, are actual. In actual fact, you may view time as a code that the timeless makes use of for particular functions. Your DNA is time-encoded, which is why your child enamel fell out on schedule and also you went by means of puberty or menopause. Cells divide on one other schedule, and voluntarily die sooner or later. There are dozens of organic clocks inside you, governing 1000’s of chemical reactions on the microscopic stage together with grasp cycles like sleep and month-to-month menstruation.

But the entire scheme of organic time can’t be understood with out the timeless, or to provide it an easier title, nonchange. You’re the product of each change and nonchange. For instance, your mind chemistry is steady and nonchanging, but ideas type a whirlwind of change. Your physique temperature is aligned with a steadiness level, homeostasis, that’s preserved within the face of change when outdoors temperatures are torrid or freezing.

Your DNA is fastened and unchanging on the subject of the genes you have been born with, but no two folks exhibit the identical genetic exercise, which dynamically modifications with each expertise. Having grasped how change and nonchange are each mandatory, the massive query is “who controls them? How does all this alteration happen with out throwing the physique off?” If you recognize who or what governs time inside us, nonchanged isn’t sufficient. Amazingly, there needs to be a standard connecting X issue that’s neither in time nor timeless.

Why is it necessary to maneuver on this route? There’s a seemingly ominous Vedic saying from centuries in the past which declares that point devours every thing, and within the face of inevitable loss of life, being time’s meals is fearsome, however in actuality time begins to devour us from the second of delivery. A standard theme on the planet’s knowledge traditions is the necessity to escape time by transcending it. In the event you don’t heed this recommendation however stay inside a time-bound existence, one of the best you are able to do is to bide your time making an attempt to be happier than unhappy.

But irrespective of how satisfying the story you create, probably the most depressing life is related to probably the most blessed life by being time’s sufferer. The escape from a time-bound life opens two potentialities. You possibly can transcend ego, want, and all relationships to repair your thoughts on the timeless, which is the route taken by ascetics, monks, saints, and yogis. Or you may merge the timeless into the time-bound, which is what the New Testomony means by being on the planet however not of it. 

For the overwhelming majority of individuals, the second escape route is the one viable. Listed below are the most important steps that observe:

  • You align your id, your sense of self, with the timeless.
  • You expertise transcendence in your personal consciousness.
  • You domesticate transcendence as every day follow. 
  • You stay as a lot as potential in easy consciousness, undistracted by the fixed exercise of pondering.
  • You cease taking note of occasions that frighten folks, notably getting older and loss of life.
  • You search the calm stability of pure consciousness, which is your supply.

I’ve couched these steps generally phrases with out utilizing particular vocabulary like meditation, yoga, and the phrases widespread to Japanese religious traditions. The important factor is to begin figuring out with consciousness, as a result of it holds the important thing, being past each time and the timeless.

Our minds are set as much as suppose in opposites, and also you may mechanically assume that point is the alternative of the timeless, simply as life is the alternative of loss of life. However neither case is like that. In actuality, time and the timeless are meshed, interwoven, and merged, simply as life is merged and interwoven with loss of life. What we’re speaking about is wholeness. By definition wholeness embraces all experiences, all qualities of life, all classes of thought. Silent consciousness is entire just like the ocean, and ideas are waves that come up on the floor of consciousness like waves on the ocean.

If we’re ever to crack the code of time, it should be from the attitude of wholeness. Inevitably we will need to have one foot in time, however the thoughts can transcend to a stage of consciousness the place time-bound pondering strikes to the background and the timeless strikes to the foreground. when this occurs, time not devours us. As a substitute, we course of our experiences inside a brand new framework the place the default is nonchange.

In a really actual sense you flip your experiences, together with the expertise of time, into every thing you recognize as your bodymind. That is analogous to metabolizing the meals you eat. In an effort to nourish you, experiences should be metabolized beneficially. Poisonous experiences enter the material of the bodymind very in another way than useful experiences.

That is clear sufficient on the stage of feelings, for instance. Somebody who’s depressed, anxious, overwhelmed by stress, and topic to abusive habits isn’t metabolizing their life the identical manner as one other one that is emotionally joyful, wholesome, and fulfilled. Unusual as it would sound, time works the identical manner. Somebody who feels rushed, all the time working, and fearing that there’s by no means sufficient time isn’t metabolizing time the best way an individual is who has transcended to expertise nonchange, or the timeless, as the idea of life.

Cracking the code of time is due to this fact not an arcane challenge higher left to physicists and philosophers. It’s important to each particular person as a matter, actually, or life and loss of life—accepting the timeless nature of human consciousness deeply modifications each.
