Daily reflections, Day seventeen, When Time Stands Still

Day seventeen
When time stands still

Day seventeen
When time stands still

“Miracles are both beginnings and endings, and so they alter the temporal order. They are always affirmations of rebirth, which seem to go back but really go forward. They undo the past in the present, and thus release the future.” ACIM, T-1.1.13:1-3

Have you ever felt that time stood still? You were in a flow state and when you came out of it you said to yourself, “Where did the time go?”

We sometimes say that “time flies.”

When we leave the world of the ego with linear time of past, present, and future, we enter into another dimension where the time of the ego disappears. We have a little taste of eternity where there is no guilt from the past, and no desire for future things, but we are at peace being one with the whole. We come to experience what it is like to be timeless.

When we have the experience of timelessness, it does seem miraculous. This experience of timelessness has been described in psychology as a “flow state” which we experience more often than we think. It can be achieved in meditation and when we become engrossed and enthralled in many activities.

Today, I will consciously identify when I am more likely to experience flow and perhaps create those circumstances so I can experience the miracle of time standing still outside of the world of the ego and join the world of Spirit..
