"There's Not Enough Time."
Within deep states of consciousness, participants negotiate for many things they intend even in wakeful states - wisdom, truth, healing, freedom, strength, love, power and so on. Fundamentally, what do we struggle for?
"It's about Time."
The psychological driver that leaves many of us traumatised is "hurry up." Year after year, we became later and later for the elusive present moment. Busyness is an affliction that needs to be understood from multiple perspectives. True Poverty doesn't concern the lack of money. To access True Wealth, we somehow need to work on scarcity issues concerning True Time.
Innerdance gives people Time, not in the literal sense. Time is not what we normally think it is.
In much of Western philosophical tradition, Time is somewhat synonymous to Death. In our Ordinary Understanding of Time, the present is a temporality in which something ceases to be, while something is also not yet.
Time is the passing itself and what passes. Time has always passed away.
When we realize that "Nothing Ever Dies," we heal our fear of death which is sustained in time's passage. When we simply watch and witness Life, the Pass-Age of Time realizes ... even as we are renewed, so do we sense we are ancient; we are so old.
The Mind is an Hourglass, how?
Moment by Moment, sand trickles through a mental bottleneck that manages what we call Chaos. Time gives Order to the Infinite and the Eternal. Our Bodyclock ticktocks to this very purpose. Without Time, we are Everything-All-At-Once.
Yet over and over, from the deepest innerdance experiences, pilgrims repeat the same insight retrieved from Space. "There's No Time."
We are learning how to open wide the hourglass's Time-Trickle function.
Chronoception studies our Sense of Time while Chronemics studies how we perceive Time from cultural automaticity. The latter explains why Time in Siberia or Poland does not run on the same train of thought as it does in Africa or the Philippines. In places such as Switzerland or Germany, Monochronic Time describes mental states in which people are able to conduct their activities one-at-a-time. These are cultures in which punctuality and sequential scheduling of activities are valued and upheld.
In Polychronic cultures, schedules happen in simultaneous chaotic busyness, where traditional and tribal folks juggle multiple conversations and tasks in an overlap of randomness and complexity. Just as diversity runs wild in animal and plant ecosystems, nature manages its constituents, in opposition to how humans now tend to manage nature.
So much of the innerdance process makes the monochronic, polychronic. Just as Time brought into the Universe, an Order-of-Things, so do we create a new experience of Time that is actually also very old - cyclical, inter-dimensional, random, freed up and simultaneous - it is when we expand the confines of Time, that we also heal the Fear of Death that motivates the most basic decisions determining our sense of health and wealth, both.
Together, our study projects focus on how the innerdance facilitator is also the Giver of Time - which is the psychological science, is called the Zeitgeber (the Time-Giver).
This week, we shared a file named The Cosmic Carpet as an opening for dialogue process for zoom calls and whatsapp sharings. Adding the audio, The Hermeneutics of Change as a supplement :
