Commitment is One of the Most Powerful Tools in Your Human Inventory


The passage of time is like an hourglass where the grains of sand are moments passing through the narrows of the present space; this narrows is measured in time as "now." Sand that has fallen through this narrows is called the "past" and the sand waiting to fall is called the "future." However, remember, there is a view of the glass of time that can see it all in a single glance. Spiritual mastery — and now scientific study — shows us that time is an illusion; it is a limited perception contained and constrained within our five senses. Past and future are pure imagination, yet extremely convenient markers. They allow us to keep track of all our concepts by making the order of 'things' more logical. Our five senses produce a logical view of the world and this view emulates the "passage of time."

There is a more advanced way to view the cosmos; one that sees all time together as one. In this view — the past, the present and the future are all just the sand in the glass with no reference to its movement. This view, known as the continuum, is the power of our intuition, premonition and the various psychic abilities. Instead of watching each moment of the sand as it moves in the moment, it focuses on all of the sand at once, and just as with all of time ... all of the sand is in fact . . . always existing.

Every human has this inherent capacity to perceive and interpret time in this way, but most have not yet activated the "equipment." The world at large discredits such attempts to engage this view by branding it as weird, crazy, or dreaming. This way of viewing life and the world is a human skill that can be activated and highly trained.

Commitment is one of the most powerful tools in your human inventory. It overrides impulse and places control of your experience back in your hands. Commitment is one of the many pathways to the power of intuition; a perfect way to embrace and comprehend the 'passage of time' to guide your life toward your goals.

An extremely practical method of discovering, strengthening and tuning up your commitment is through yoga, meditation and chanting. Kundalini yoga stretches you into your body glove to remove the emotional distractions and physical discomforts. Meditation and chanting clear the brain of its chatter (conscious and unconscious) and enable clarity to flourish. Tuning this human instrument on a regular, consistent, daily basis presents you with the joy of knowing that you actually know. This is at the very root of the power of intuition.
