Time if a finite and a calculated thing right? Well if you are going by chronos time then the answer is yes. But what if I were to tell you that there is a completely different perceptional view of time that is actually what you are looking for? This new type of time is called kairos time.
According to ancient Greek there are two different ways of viewing and experiencing time. The first is known as chronos or chronological time. This is the type of sequential time that most people focus their lives around. Working 8 hour days, having weekends off, taking an hour off for lunch are all examples of the strict scheduling of your chronos time.
There is another time, or experience of time, that they also talk about in ancient Greek called Kairos time. Kairos time is “the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment)”. Kairos time ” signifies a time lapse, a moment of indeterminate time in which everything happens.” – wikipedia
This is the now moment, the timeless experience of universal flow where is seems like either regular time doesn’t matter, slows down, or stops completely. There are people out there doing research to learn more about this type of flowing experience because it is often linked to super human perception, eureka inspiration, divine creativity, and powerful life changing moments.
Getting into flow is known by different names by different people. Individuals who play sports, and play them well, refer to this as being in ‘the zone’. Their perception is heightened and they perform well above their average skill level then they enter ‘the zone’. Jazz musicians refer to this level of awareness and performance as being ‘in the pocket’. They talk about getting so lost in the music that they just know what is coming next just as naturally as breathing.
See what Kairos time means for you and your life:
When you are completely in flow you become the universe in micro form. You feel the divine connection between yourself and everyone around you. You flow naturally with nature and you have no room for doubt or fear in your perception. This is truly one of the most powerful and sought after forms of awareness in this world.
What tools do people use to get into flow? People find that dance, meditation, music, movement, and connecting with divinity help them get into flow more often and for longer periods of time. This is why everyone is always telling you to “be in the now moment”. That is where your super powers are.
In your next meditation focus your mind on this moment so powerfully that you become what I refer to as ‘the observer’. Don’t think about the past and don’t worry about the future. Just slow your mind down and focus on all of your physical senses. What are you hearing, feeling smelling, touching, or seeing? Don’t attach to any of the sensations and perceptions coming your way, not even your own thoughts. Allow them all to flow through you. Let all things flow in through your sensory organs and on their way.
You are but a traveler on the river of life. Do not cling to the side of the river or you will stop your own flow and become stagnant. Stagnicity is where fear, doubt, anxiety, and disease lie. Ride the waves of emotion and perception with a calm focus on being present and you will find yourself slip into flow.
What else can you do when you reach a flow state?
Once you are in flow you will see the coincidences placed in your path on purpose to guide you towards your higher mission. You will run into a stranger that needed your help, you will find that opportunity that you have been seeking, and you will finally find out what it is like to truly be at peace. Being in flow is how you attract the reality and experiences you want in life.
All of this comes when you change your focus from chronos time to kairos time and act on the opportunities that the universe keeps sending your way.
