What is psychological time? Is the movement of psychological time observable? If we’re observing ourselves in relationship, where is this psychological time observed? What exactly is it?
K: So one of the factors of our life is time. Has time - we are going together to find out what is time, how great part time plays in our life and whether time - which is the process of division, time which is a beginning and an ending, time which is becoming - whether that time, apart from chronological time, apart from the time of the sun rising, sun setting, the beauty of a full moon and the slip of the new moon, whether time has a part in or excludes beauty.
K: We are saying that thought and time are the root of fear. We explained somewhat. You can work it out for yourself, the nature of time. Time is division - as yesterday, today and tomorrow. Time of something that has happened which was painful a week ago and might happen again. The remembrance of the past projecting into the future, and be afraid of that which might happen.- Bombay Jan.1983
**So, does psychological time have the nature of thoughts which imply something might occur in the future? Is this ‘future’ a projection of thought? Is there an awareness, when a thought of this nature arises, that it’s the imagination, or is it taken as truth?
How about all “if” statements? “If you do this.” “If we stay with it.” “If you see the false.” Who? When?
Do all “If” ideas move away from what is?
K: When I am heavenly, saintly, tremendously, deeply, supremely intelligent, everything will be over. But I’m not! So please have the goodness not to introduce the words “when,” “if,” and should. You are avoiding the question. - Saanen Aug.1966
**When we make statements saying, ‘When, if, and should’, is that perpetuating the illusion of psychological time?
