Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
The Chicken and Egg question is an issue which seems to be unsolvable, using society's present belief system. However, the concept of Simultaneous Time answers, explains, and negates the entire idea of anything coming first. Prepare yourself to delve into an all-expansive topic which will utterly shatter your concept of time, space, and physical reality.
To begin with, just because you can't see or touch something does not mean it doesn't exist. They laughed at Thomas Edison when he said he could make light come out of an empty glass tube. The lack of belief in an incandescent lamp did not stop the bulb from lighting! I am glad Mr. Edison had the good sense to ignore those narrow minded fools of his time! In fact, I thank him every time I turn on my light switch -- and you should too!
What does Thomas Edison have to do with Simultaneous Time? Not much directly, but his spirit is a reminder that you can break down the barriers society has erected against you. Barriers which stop you from understanding and accepting useful ideas, like Simultaneous Time.
To begin with, your past, your present, and your future exist NOW, simultaneously, within the Ever Present Moment. As we covered in the last chapter, the Ever Present Moment is your intersection point to other energy patterns. Each present moment is a doorway to the moments that came before and the moments that are to come. If this doorway did not exist, the present moment would not either. For example, It is logical to assume that to get to the moment you are in now, you had to go through the past moments which led up to your present moment. Now, let's take this idea one more step. If past moments exist -- because you had to pass through them -- than the future moments must exist too. Think of it like this: how can you move from or to something that does not exist?
Think of the past, present, and future as three rooms. You are in the center room. This room's name is the present. Now, directly behind you is the past room -- you just came from there. Ahead of you is the future room -- you are going there. Now, if that future room did not exist, you would have no place to step into; as also, if the past room did not exist, you could not step into the place you are now.
Because you feel you can not peek into that future room or back into that past room, you feel they can't exist. Yet you walk easily from one physical room to another, without first peeking into them -- and you don't think twice about it. So it is with Simultaneous Time, you effortlessly walk from moment to moment, without a second thought about where you have been or where you are going. Obviously the carpenter built those physical rooms for you to walk through, and because he built them, they exist. Well, the carpenter for your past, present, and future is yourself. Are you going to deny the existence of yourself? Then don't deny the existence of your past or future.
What we are doing here, with this room to moment analogy, is breaking down those barriers that society has erected. In actuality, there is no difference between walking through rooms and moments. Both items are energy through which you move. However, the difference between them is in the patterns that the energy takes, at any given time. Once your consciousness tunes into a particular energy pattern, that energy pattern becomes part of your conscious moment and becomes your point-of-power. The fact is that the any physical room, the past, the present, and the future are all energies which exist together, within the Ever Present Moment!
Can we access these other energies contained within the encapsulated moment? Yes! These other moments, which encompass the Ever Present Moment, are accessible. Simultaneous Time coupled with the Ever Present Moment demand it to be so; and the instrument which enables you to obtain this information is with you all the time: your consciousness.
Because your past and future are accessible from the Ever Present Moment, you can check on, alter, and even communicate with those moments! Think for a minute how powerful and advantageous that can be for you now. Imagine calling on a future self, to help solve your present dilemma! Imagine going back into your past, so that you could warn a past self of a potentially dangerous event. What would those actions do for you now? The potential is infinite -- and awesome!
No longer will you hang on an unknown future or a disturbing present event. No longer will the past haunt you. The answer is simple! Go back and change those past moments or go forward and see what you will do. Your past and future, as well as your present, exist together within the present moment because time is simultaneous. Remember your point-of-power. Your point-of-power is your key to access those other moments. With your point-of-power properly focused, you can change what was and what will be, or look into what was and what will be, or even talk to what was and what will be.
Now that we have hyped you up, let's come down-to-earth a bit, before we go any further. By shifting your point-of-power and traveling backward in time, to change some undesired event, there are things that are not going to change, as far as your current moment concerns itself. For example, if you changed into a job that you regretted and you go back to that past self and stop that person from changing jobs, that is not going to alter the fact that you changed jobs in your reality. However, what will change is your present feelings that accompanied that mistake. You will no longer feel regret for that past action. You will have helped another part of yourself make a wiser move.
Furthermore, that changing of your past, through the Ever Present Moment, will influence the future you are drawing toward you. The past you have changed will cause other conditions to spring about more suited to your present needs. Eventually, your present moment will change into conditions similar to what you would be experiencing, had you not made the erroneous decision. Also, as if that is not enough, Simultaneous Time dictates that once you begin to reach to your past selves, to help them through difficult times, your future selves will come to your aid when you need it.
Now, the extension of future selves, in a reality that is simultaneous in nature, should bring you to the idea of your Higher-Self. You've heard people talking about that all-knowing self locked away some place. Your Higher-Self is a future self of you eons from now. Simultaneous Time unlocks that elusive Higher-Self and brings that wisdom right into your present. Your Higher-Self knows what is best for you because, in your Higher-Self's Ever Present Moment, your future is his past! Simultaneous Time is one reason your Higher-Self cares and loves you so much. Your present moment is his past. Your Higher-Self knows the all important lesson of Simultaneous Time: to make the present the best it can be, you must make the past and future the best they can be. Your Higher-Self loves you dearly -- for without you, he would not exist. Likewise, without your past, you would not exist. Therefore, when dealing with a past self, use only love, kindness, and compassion. Remember! It's you you are reaching out to.
Let's talk about how you can reach your past and future self from the Ever Present Moment, using your point-of-power. For this exercise, and your first few times doing the routine, limit your contact to the past. In the beginning, it is easier to make the connection to a past personality than a future one. Also, it may be helpful, but not necessary, to get an old photo of yourself taken around that time you wish to travel back to.
First, to accomplish this connection, you will need to shift your point-of-power from the reality you know. Find a comfortable spot, but one that will not put you to sleep. You can sit or lie down. We find that sitting on the floor with your back against the wall works the best. Take a moment to relax. If you have a picture of yourself, take these moments to look at it. Try to get a feel for the time and era you are trying to reach. Think about the feelings that were going through you then. Now, close your eyes.
Place your finger tips together -- without letting your palms or your adjacent fingers touch each other. Each finger tip, including your thumbs, should touch each other. Your right thumb tip should touch your left thumb tip. Your right index tip should touch your left index tip ... and so forth. There should be about a one inch space between your palms, and there should be at least a half-inch space between each touching finger. Only your finger tips should be touching. The tops of your fingers should point up and be near your chest. This finger positioning is very important -- it connects all your energy centers in such a way that enables this technique to work easily.
Now, start taking slow, easy breaths. After about a minute, try to feel yourself floating within a warm, cozy bubble of energy. At this point, you should feel your energy-level rising. You may even notice a burning or a chill running up and down you spine. That sensation is good. It is a sign that your energy centers are active.
Now, mentally look outward through your energy bubble, as if you are looking into a great distance. Think about the past self you wish to contact. Picture that person in your mind. Now, visualize before you a calendar. This calendar should start with today's date. Begin to turn the pages of the calendar backward, faster and faster, glancing at the dates as they go by. Stop when you reach the approximate period you want.
Now, see that past person clearly in your mind. Do not worry, in the beginning, if you feel this process is all in your imagination. In time, the images within your mind will become more clear and more real. Tell that person the advice you came to communicate. Now, travel forward in time a bit -- visualize that other past self following your advice and watch the new outcome.
Now, you may return. Picture that imaginary calendar flipping forward and stop when you reach your time and reality. Take some deep breaths to center yourself. Open your eyes. The technique is complete.
The whole process should take no longer than ten or fifteen minuets -- less time than that when you get good at it. Try to do the exercise once or twice a week, until you get the knack of it. After that, you can use the routine as much or as little as you like.
As you get better with this routine, you should use the procedure for contacting a future self, though this contacting may not always be necessary. Once you begin establishing a good connection with your past selves, you may find future selves visiting you, without the need to program yourself to go there. A future self is most likely to visit you right before you begin to turn those calendar pages backward. However, don't be surprised if you find a future self popping up in other places, like in your dreams or in the form-of whispers in your ear. Remember, your future selves are better at this exercise than you are. They have been doing it longer than you! They have improved on the process!
That's it! So which came first, the chicken or the egg? If you have been following me, neither chicken nor egg came first. They exist together. One can not exist without the other -- when the egg came into being, so did the chicken. When God created you, your past and future came into being. As far as Simultaneous Time is concerned, it does not matter. As far as God is concerned, he recreates you every moment -- moment to moment. If God is not concerned about this which came first thing, than why should you?
In the next chapter we will dive further into the Ever Present Moment and explore another doorway that exists, the probability doorway. Probabilities are what enables you to choose from a myriad of possible futures. So get ready! The next chapter will finish the mind-blowing this chapter began!
