Conditioned by Time

Until the veil of ignorance is removed, the Conditioned Mind will be in control. This isn’t in place as something that’s wrong, but it does block your true essence from arising and reaching your true potential…

It’s often said one should practice being in the present moment, but in reality this is impossible because the present moment instantly becomes the past. Even before you can finish saying I’m in the present moment, it’s already the past. Watching the unfolding of time as each moment occurs is key if one is to not get caught up in the Conditioned Mind which is a mind that’s constantly in the past or future. This Conditioned Mind is the state that most of humanity is stuck in. It’s the energy that most live by, this is one reason it’s so difficult to go beyond it. People see things through this mind and because of ignorance are blocked from realizing this. Until this veil of ignorance is removed the Conditioned Mind will remain in control.

The unfolding of time is something one needs to become more aware of if the mind is to slow down. This slowing down occurs if it’s allowed, although this won’t just happen on its own, but there’s also nothing one can do to make it happen so it would seem as though one is stuck between a rock and a hard place. This is all part of the Conditioned Mind that makes life chaotic. One thing I have noticed that allows the Conditioned Mind to loosen its grip somewhat is to be aware of it in relation to time. Time is one of the Conditioned Minds key elements so instead of using time in the conventional way, just watch how each moment unfolds. This unfolding is constant and when it’s seen the mind naturally slows. This is because time is no longer being used by the Conditioned Mind puppeteer, as the strings of “I” are cut, one at a time…
