SATSANG OF SWAMI AMAR JYOTI

QUANTUM SPIRITUALITY
Understanding Time, Space and Relativity

by Swami Amar Jyoti

A clock or watch is a mechanical apparatus that we have created to show divisions of time, but in the cosmos, the atmosphere, in your mind, what is time?

As with anything on the relative plane, time is dualistic—past, present and future. We pinpoint time as if it has some existence or dimension, without which we cannot regulate our life in the world. That has become our dependence. I am not trying to be revolutionary against time. However, when we talk about Consciousness, you will see that time is fictitious. We have attributed time according to the sunrise and sunset and divisions in between. From that point of view, time is dependent upon the sun, without which our conception of time falls flat. But the sun is on its own course; it does not stop at hourly junctures. Where do the division of seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years and centuries exist? Division is in the mind and we call it time. The Vedic word for time is kala, which is also the term for age and death.

What is it that we call the past? We speak of fleeting time, of time flying, of time gone, yet always it is the present. It is now. What is no longer now, we say is gone, but at that time it was the present. The future moment, when it comes, is also the present. You are just existing at this moment. In other words: when you do not conceive of the future or past, it is simply a continuity of now. When you stay there, time stands still. That is called Samadhi or superconsciousness, and when you experience this you see that time simply does not exist.

Consciousness is with you at all times—when you decide to jump into That. The word “when” signifies time, and it is you creating according to what you want. Your objective creation then assumes a reality to you, not to anyone else. It has no meaning for me; it is an illusion. We are living, as they say, in different timescales. Why is that? Because time is fictitious. It can have any scale you want to give it, like a ghost to which you can give any shape. In one sense, we are dependent upon time because we have given it a reality.
