Time and the Grid

We may like the idea of being in the flow, or living in the moment, yet so many of our actions seek, in one way or another, to change the course of that flow, or change the outcome, or speed it up or slow it down, all to suit our view of things. Of course, this rarely works, and usually it creates even more issues, as collateral damage, that need to be dealt with. We are still learning the way to be with life’s unfolding. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So the dream I remember is I’m going to work, and the building I’m going to work in I think it’s kind of new to me. It’s a rather plain building with wooden floors, on one level, with lots of windows. 

But there’s a couple of rooms, and in one room you have people working on a project on different round tables, and you sit down. But if you go in and you do your work in that room, after you’ve done your work, you have to make your hours fit in this grid. In other words, everybody has a piece of paper that’s marked into a grid, every person has so many hours in a little box on the grid. But the different columns have to add up in a certain way, so even if you worked a certain number of hours you may not be able to log all your hours because it has to not take away from the hours that somebody else put on that line. 

So you have to be careful how much work you do in that room so that it fits on the grid. And you can just go into the adjoining room and work. Well, I’m new, and so sometimes I’m not sure which room I’m supposed to do my work in yet. And I’ve worked in both rooms during the day. And the next day when I go in I start to bring my hours down and someone suddenly showing me, well, I can put my hours down on this grid for the hours I was in that room, but I need to not take away from the hours so that one other person had put in there, some initials MJ or something. 

So I’m trying to figure it out, because I’m not quite sure how the grid works. And that somehow had to do something with my sister flying home, and where everybody was sitting on the airplane. That’s all I can tell you.

John: That’s a pretty interesting and deep dream, because what it’s basically saying is you’re working with the principles of time and space. But the essential aspect that you’re working with is the principle of time. 

One of the problems in terms of working with a certain principle of time, where you have to work that in relationship to space, is that you have to let everything unfold on its path, you don’t interfere with something. And so how you fit that time in, like, for example, you as a feminine nature should have a greater understanding of the grid than maybe the masculine nature. 

But as you take and you work with something, like with your dad, and how he should be, and how things need to come together and whatnot, and where all the over-the-topism needs to subside, you’re playing the principle of time; time on a grid. 

Again, time is a thought, it’s the thoughts when they come down; it’s in the out-breath. And, as a thought comes down, it has to contend with the collective of all kinds of thoughts that exist. And a thought, per se, can be like a plague if it’s too set, if it can’t properly let go. The principle of properly letting go, and properly flowing, and hitting a quality of a stillness is where you don’t interfere with things in terms of the time and grid evolvement. 

It’s like other people all have what they’re working on in terms of their time in the grid. And there is a way of approaching things so that everything fits in its process – because it’s all a oneness. There are bifurcations, you don’t fight the bifurcations, it does no good to fight the bifurcations. You just realize that everything unfolds, in terms of its time and space. 

You have to know how to work with time, work with the thoughts on the grid, without interfering. And there’s plenty of room and plenty of space for doing that. And when you do that, then you go into the next room, which is the room of stillness. Until you are able to do that, until you learn the principle of that, you struggle, you contend, you wear yourself out. 

Any kind of wearing or exhausting yourself out is a signal from the heart that something is not right. In other words it requires a reading sight so that all of it finds its balance of flow, in the outer, in the time space continuum, in the in-breath and out-breath where things don’t contend, and have to contend, back and forth as if they have to contend – that’s where you hit the letting go.
