Time Perception

Wed, 06/08/2014 Bangalore, India

 

There is a very intricate connection between Time, the Mind, and an Event. An event has an impact on the mind, and time has an impact on an event. Time also has an impact on the mind; it is a triangle.

An event is influenced by time, the mind is also influenced by the event, and the mind is also influenced by time.
Liberation (Mukti) is freeing the mind from time and events. You cannot separate time from an event, but you can separate the mind from both, events and time, and the way to that is meditation.

So, it is time that makes an event good or bad. And it is the event that makes the mind pleasant or unpleasant. And it is time that makes the mind free or bound. So this is an extremely interesting mechanism. The triangle of time, mind and events.
So, people who knew the Divine Laws, the Divine Plan, the Divine Mind, or who understood time were called Daivadnya. If you understand Time, then you can manage events, and also manage the mind.

The farmer knows at what time he needs to sow the seeds. Suppose a farmer sows the seeds before the rainy season, or at the beginning of the summer season, then he is going to incur a loss. So, the farmer knows when exactly to sow the seed. He looks at the time and then sows the seed.
The farmer also knows when to harvest. If he harvests before time, then it won't work. If he does if after the right time, then also it is no good. So for sowing and harvesting, the farmer knows the right time, isn't it? So to know how the events are happening, that itself is a knowledge. The knowledge of how the events are happening.

Events are associated with action, the mind is associated with action. Time is associated with action. It is all like a trapezium: Actions, Events, Time and Mind.
This is a very interesting thing. So it is important to do the right thing at the right time.
