Time, Time Dilation, Cessation of Time, and its relation with Space

What we perceive as time is nothing but the passage of frames of space (in front of us) through our perception. Let us try to understand this by an example. When we see a movie (movie is but a passage of frames at a rate of 24 frames per second), it seem live, as happening in time, but, if we see still frames of that movie one by one separately, they appear as static pictures (as frames of space). In the same way, what we see as live passage of time is in fact the passage of frames of space at a particular rate through our perception.

As the rate of passages of frames of space becomes faster and faster, the clock time slows down (Time dilation), and when the passages of frames of space approaches the speed of light, the clock time of that order ceases to exist, as like in the solid matter the atoms are in fact moving so fast that they appear solid and unmoving matter to us. Infinite curvature of Space-Time upon the formation of a Black Hole is the same phenomenon on a higher order, wherein the passages of frames of space has became  so fast that the clock time of that order has ceased to exist.

If we can somehow make the speed of our inner perception exceedingly high, we can experience the slowing down and cessation of psychological time of our order, as if it has been stilled and has entered altogether different dimension. (When one is able to observe in that very moment the inner occurrence of an extreme negative emotion or an extremely powerful sex drive, and one is able, voluntarily, not to succumb to it, it is an example of an exceedingly high speed of inner perception, about which we are talking here). Exactly this happens in the moment of higher consciousness – in that moment one enters the attention (Chitt) so wholly that one’s perception acquires such a speed that it becomes still and alive, and the psychological time of that order ceases to exist for him. However, there are various orders of space and various orders of time.

What a beauty!

From the close observation of His daily routine, from His morning rituals, discourse and even His each and every minor activity - walking, looking at someone, folding hands, etc. - one can distinctly and clearly feel (not only in one's heart but also in one's deepest soul) that this person is totally 'there' while doing each and every activity.

One just cannot escape a clear feeling that He is a testimony of what it means to be totally present in the moment, a testimony of what it means to have Niruddh-ChittVriti (utmost pure and whole ChittVriti), as if He is not of this world (not slightly attached with anything whatsoever, completely separate from everything). Without closely observing such pure beings it is not possible for an ordinary human mind to visualize the extent of inner purity and presence possible for a human being, and it works as a verified trust that "Yes, this is possible". What a beauty!

Efforts that really matter

As we all know and as we all have experienced, the energy of different qualities and of different fineness works inside us at different times. For example, at certain times a slight provocation or a minor difficulty evokes much negativity or indignation or self-pity inside us, not only that, it instantly menifest in our behavior and attitude. But at certain other times we are relatively poised and calm and certain level of difficulties or not-so-good behavior of others don’t evoke much negativity in us, and if it evokes then also we are able to control its manifestations in our behavior and attitude.  And at certain exceptional moments, though very rarely, we are so calm and collected that nothing of outside can disturb us from inside.

The first situation occurs at the time when our ego (false personality or the false self-image) is dominantly active within us, which is the crudest and lowest energy, the energy of ‘World96’, and that brings us under the law of accident. At such times whatever effort we make in terms of doing something, would be useless, rather, counterproductive because whatever we do will be from, and colored by, that crudest energy, and so it cannot produce any good results. At such moments, if luckily we become aware of it, the most important and useful thing would be not to do anything, that is, not to allow that crude energy to menifest in ‘action’. Only "effort' that is appropriate at such moments is to tell oneself, "Don't do anything, just be".

The above second situation occurs at the time when the energy of practical thinking and the energy that is responsible for being a good householder, the energy of ‘World48’ is active within us, and that brings us under the positive aspect of the law of karma, the law of cause & effect. At such moments, we can intentionally make efforts to create right causes (if we know it) that can produce desired results over time. All the efforts of gaining right knowledge, of career building etc, come under this category. At such moments, it will be very useful to tell oneself, "Do something really useful".

The above third situation, if occur at all with ordinary human beings like us, occurs very rarely. During those moments the higher energy of ‘World24 and World12’ is active within us. It is moments of the state of deep Essence coupled with higher consciousness (the third state). It is a divine and inspired moment, a moment that imbibes higher influences and higher impressions. The only thing that is appropriate at such moments is to 'let that be', and not to allow oneself to do anything that is self-centered. Such state has inherent power of producing right and ‘effort-less’ efforts on its own, if we let it be and don’t interfere with it by doing something mean.
