Carlos Castaneda relayed the concept of The Wheel of Time to us.
What is The Wheel of Time and what are it’s furrows of existence? Silence and Dreaming have given me a take on that, which I’d like to share.
Simply put there are imperatives that compel us in one way of living.
It is like a groove, a furrow that we follow through time. We can say it is genetic inheritance and a training usually within that inheritance.
Nature by default grows beings and their lives in what can be called a furrow or groove. We know the phrase that fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Yet humans are strange creatures, largely in our infancy. We are at a time of great change and possibilities that have been realised by sages, throughout our history, these are now realisable by us all.
We have reason, and our reason is becoming exercised. Our lives are not so hard. We have more leisure, more tools to assist us.
Humans are beginning to examine their perceptions, their emotions, their feelings.
We are beginning to be able to separate reason from emotion and feeling.
Many are beginning to understand how they are creating the realities of their lives. Many are becoming conscious of untapped facets of their nature.
Through exploration, we find Will, Unbending Intent. A force that is both responsible for us being here and is at our service.
This is why service has always been seen and spoken of as the fastest way to evolve. It is one of the universe’s deepest secrets.
We are trapped within the Wheel of Time by our learned, habitual behaviour.
This is why fluidity, adaptability is looked on by many as one of our best characteristics for change.
Carlos gave us physical exercises, that he called Not Doings, that had as their Intent to interrupt our habitual behaviour.
One of these was The Wheel of Time. The perceptual fluidity to accept the gift of the age, requires doing new things.
If we can grab the Wheel of Time and turn it to a new furrow, by cultivating new thought, feelings, intents and actions then we catapult ourselves into a new existence.
This is a movement of perception, or as Carlos would say, the assemblage point, where perception is assembled, to another place.
We have linear concepts, that allows us to perceive Time as past, present and future. This is something though that is created with that linear awareness. We are t more than that linear awareness.
Time is incalculable in its immensity, a thought of the universe, an intensity beyond the linear.
Carlos said Time is Intent or elastic to its own intensity. What can that mean for us?
Through Silence and Dreaming, we begin to align with the force that is Time and understand that Time doesn’t move, it is like Space, we move through it, or at least have the sensation of doing so.
Both Silence and Dreaming are the door to fluidity to exercise the facets of our awareness, hidden to us by our habituation to the past.
Conscious Dreamers come to the knowledge of other furrows of existence that they operate in and the immensity that these furrows reflect.
It can be very daunting, coming into a Dream where everyone knows you, whilst you have only a vague recollection of them.
Yet experienced Dreamers know they occupy several furrows of existence and that their nature is pristine, in that it is untouched by these furrows.
In these different timelines for many the common powers of lucid dreaming, like flying etc rescind, just as they do in daily life.
However there are those Dreamers that have gone beyond, the individual criteria for all realms, They keep these powers.
This is the education many of us are receiving at the moment.
The Universe is full of undreamed possibilities. Life Dreams them in the Wheel of Time.
These possibilities always exist, they are claimed for us by our attention.
We have reached a nexus point in Time.
Is it to be extinction for us or an understanding of our nature beyond the confines of fear?
Life holds the possibility of inconceivable transformation for us.
Balance your fear and awe at existence.
Steady yourself. Grab the Wheel of Time and turn it.
This Wheel is lubricated by Intent itself.
Now is the Time of Its turning.
