Then Time Will Not Have Power over Us

760.4Comment: They say that we cannot escape from the constant ticking of the clock in our head. That is, we are in a hurry, we are constantly running out of time, and this causes stress and all sorts of problems.

And then, a traveler went somewhere in the North Atlantic on his yacht and started observing himself. He says the first thing he did was to throw away his watch.

Suddenly he felt that the body easily adapts to existence in sync with nature. “It felt like I am a part of it,” he writes. “It was easy to understand what time of day it was. It was harder to return to the world later. The feeling that I am a part of nature slowly went away.” He says he wants to go back there all the time. To throw away the watch and go back, but something always stops him.

Is it possible, without going on a yacht, to break free from this running, from time, from the ticking of the clock, the dial, all of it? Is it possible to do this in our world? Me, the stars, and nothing else.

My Response: That is good. Romantic.

Question: When you talk about rising above egoism, above this world, are you actually talking about rising above time?

Answer: Above time as well, but this is a completely different ascent.

One cannot express it. It is when your senses disconnect from the earthly ones, and you rise in these feelings to their common root—inanimate, vegetative, and animate—and connect with the Creator. You begin to feel the common root of the inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature.

Question: Does it mean that I am rising above my animalistic nature?

Answer: If you set this goal, then you must rise above the inanimate, vegetative and animate nature in you. This way you begin to feel that, in principle, you belong to the upper governing force called the Creator.

To the extent that you get included into the upper force, you lose the sensation of time and space, everything that is an attribute of our world. There is only one single force that fills everything.

Question: Is this the path of humanity—to adhere to this force?

Answer: Yes, but, of course, not in such a way that we have to go somewhere in North America.

We must somehow give up our world a little by not obeying it in something and look for the way we can obey the upper force of nature instead. Then we will succeed.

Question: Are we inside this upper force?

Answer: Yes, we are not exiting anywhere beyond it. We cannot exit, there is nothing else.

Question: Does it mean that our entire work is to start existing in accordance with it? Is this understanding called slowly leaving this time?

Answer: Of course.

Comment: Then he did well. He had gained some experience after all.

My Response: But what is next? He got rid of some restrictions of our world. And what did he get? Nothing. Emptiness.
