To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour-William Blake
This theory always confounds me.I think its taking root in my mind now. It's more a part of my experience now, then it was a few years back. I always loved reading about the Parallel universes theory and time being an illusion. Somehow my 3 dimensional existence failed to allow me to comprehend this.
While conducting past life regression sessions it would not cease to surprise that the sessions were interactive rather than stagnant parts of history. I could make the subject look at the environment as if they were transported to that time period. It was not like a movie which was being reviewed,this would logically be the case if it was something that had happened in the past. Can we mould and change these lives and impact them..As we impact this life are we changing the other lives..Are we having several parallel existences..Its fascinating and throws up too many questions.. Sometimes when we get depressed for no reason is a parallel self really suffering..Is it a bleedthrough of emotions.
I was reading Carl Jung's concept that it's the Western idea of looking at time as past, present and future in a linear fashion..the east looks at it in a very different way as if it was happening all at once. These Eastern concepts will get us to the truth as Science and Quantum Physics is discovering today.
Even in Eastern healing traditions like Reiki..we use a symbol to traverse time and space to connect with the subject( Distance healing). It can be used to heal past and future events by connecting through the third eye. Is the past just a vibration away ? How do clairvoyants and remote viewers see into the future..Are they just accessing a certain dimension that is existing simultaneously. There are too many anomalies if time is linear...deja vu, bleed throughs, prophetic dreams,clairvoyance.
This got me thinking that in Hindi we use the same word for yesterday and tomorrow-KAL... there s no differentiation between yesterday and tomorrow..As a child I would always wonder and often get confused..about this ( I learnt English before Hindi). I did some research and found Punjabi and bengali have the similiar usage.I havent checked the etymyology of these words. Perhaps this simple word holds a profound truth.
Maybe we will prove this in the near future that time is an illusion and past lives are just parallel lives..facets of the multidimensional being that we are..Just like a diamond with its many faces so are we. When we connect all these split parts of our soul we will regain our true self, our identity as a soul who was never born and never dies.
