The new view of time holds that both aspects, time and the timeless, are real.

The time has come to brave new ideas about time itself. If you want to make a breakthrough in human lifespan or prove the existence of higher consciousness or reach the mysterious region beyond the physical universe, all these possibilities require our concept of time to be reshaped in a new way.

Everyone knows the old ideas, which have sufficed reasonably well until now. Time puts events in order by cause and effect. Time measures the distance from birth to death, for people and the universe as well. Time emerged at the Big Bang, and it has ticked away ever since, for 13.8 billion years.

Time and Time Codes:

The new view of time holds that both aspects, time and the timeless, are real. In fact, you can view time as a code that the timeless uses for specific purposes. Your DNA is time-encoded, which is why your baby teeth fell out on schedule and you went through puberty or menopause.

Cells divide on another schedule and voluntarily die in the future. There are dozens of biological clocks inside you, governing thousands of chemical reactions at the microscopic level along with master cycles like sleep and monthly menstruation.

Yet the whole scheme of biological time cannot be understood without the timeless, or to give it a simpler name, nonchange. You are the product of both change and nonchange. For example, your brain chemistry is stable and nonchanging, yet thoughts form a whirlwind of change. Your body temperature is aligned with a balance point, homeostasis, that is preserved in the face of change when outside temperatures are torrid or freezing.

Who governs the time inside us?

Your DNA is fixed and unchanging when it comes to the genes you were born with, yet no two people exhibit the same genetic activity, which dynamically changes with every experience. Having grasped how change and nonchange are both necessary, the big question is “who controls them? How does all this change occur without throwing the body off?” If you know who or what governs time inside us, nonchanged isn’t enough. Amazingly, there has to be a common connecting X factor that is neither in time nor timeless.

Why is it important to move in this direction?

There is a seemingly ominous Vedic saying from centuries ago which declares that time devours everything, but in reality, time begins to devour us from the moment of birth. A common theme in the world’s wisdom traditions is the need to escape time by transcending it. If you don’t heed this advice but remain inside a time-bound existence, the best you can do is to bide your time trying to be happier than sad.

The escape from a time-bound life opens two possibilities. You can transcend ego, desire, and all relationships to fix your mind on the timeless, which is the route taken by ascetics, monks, saints, and yogis. Or you can merge the timeless into the time-bound, which is what the New Testament means by being in the world but not of it.

For the vast majority of people, the second escape route is the only viable.

Here are the major steps that follow:

  • You align your identity, your sense of self, with the timeless.
  • You experience transcendence in your own awareness.
  • You cultivate transcendence as a daily practice.
  • You remain as much as possible in simple awareness, undistracted by the constant activity of thinking.
  • You stop paying attention to events that frighten people, particularly aging and death.
  • You seek the calm stability of pure consciousness, which is your source.

The essential thing is to start identifying with consciousness because it holds the key to being beyond both time and the timeless.

If we are ever to crack the code of time, it must be from the perspective of wholeness. Inevitably we must have one foot in time, but the mind can transcend to a level of awareness where time-bound thinking moves to the background and the timeless moves to the foreground. when this happens, time no longer devours us. Instead, we process our experiences within a new framework where the default is nonchange.

In a very real sense, you turn your experiences, including the experience of time, into everything you know as your body mind.

Cracking the code of time is therefore not an arcane issue better left to physicists and philosophers. It is vital to every individual as a matter, literally, or life and death — accepting the timeless nature of human awareness deeply changes both.
