Recently I have been in conversation with others on the subject of objective & subjective thinking, it was said that thinking had little to do with time but I begged to differ. My view on this, which didn’t go down well, is time relates to fragmented subjective thinking however timelessness relates to collective objective thinking. I don’t personally however like to separate thinking processes into objective & subjective as it refers one thinking process being more right over the others, there is no true right & wrong in my mind but this is what this particular subject was all about. What would this have to do with mediation being a natural process?
Firstly because there are no true right or wrongs thinking right & wrongs thinking isn’t wrong or right either, this brings us to how humans function by there being a right & wrong. We can’t do anything unless there is a right or wrong value like going to the toilet or walking the dog for instance or even sleeping to keep our mind & body functioning, no matter what we do there is a right or wrong value. Mediation takes a lot of these right & wrong values away especially when we are meditating, they become a natural process instead of a right or wrong. Is the right thing to do to take the dog out for a walk or would we just do it without actually consciously thinking if there wasn’t a right or wrong value?
It has been said to me a number of times, “If there is no right or wrong value we can do as we please then?” You actually wouldn’t do as you please mainly because once you take out a wrong &/or a right out of the equation the opposite no longer exists for example; if we took wrong out of the equation would it then be right to take the dog out for a walk? It’s impossible for there to be a right without a wrong set value. What this means is walking the dog becomes a natural occurrence however, this is where time comes onto it, when we clock ourselves to walk the dog the right & wrong value comes back into the equation quite automatically mainly because it’s no longer a natural process to do. Once we bring time & clock ourselves we fragment our lives & at the same time fragment values into there being a right & wrong again which gives us right & wrong set values. Walking the dog now becomes a set value instead of a natural process. Meditation I feel brings us back into the natural process without set values being applied, no wonder we can feel quite invigorated after meditating.
This brings us to meditating itself, don’t we purposely set times in our lives to meditate & meditate for certain time periods, this is a set right or wrong value surly? Yes it is but because most of us no longer hold the ability to meditate naturally without consciously thinking about it we need to start somewhere to bring back this quite natural process of existing. We live in time with a timed (clocked) existence so this natural process of meditating is at times hard to do without clocking it however no matter how we meditate either it be natural or clocked it’s better than not meditating at all. The most important thing is while we are in meditation we are no longer conscious to time & the associated right or wrongs of our daily clocked lives, or we shouldn’t be.
Time fragments everything quite automatically but when we are actually in meditation time has a far lesser value therefor right & wrongs have a far less value. Is there anything wrong with living & thinking in time? Again whatever happens either it be perceived by us as being bad or good there is no real bad or good within time while we are thinking in timeless modes of thought like when we are meditating. Meditation I feel brings us closer to timelessness & balances out the effect of time on ourselves.

In my resent post titled Human/Non-Human Perception I received two unfavourable responses & when I read them I realised we all see & feel our souls differently which is seemingly brought on by what shade we are looking at our souls through, in other words if we look at our souls through rose coloured glasses that is what we will perceive our soul to look & therefore feel like. The person in question who was quite noticeably upset by what I wrote has in my mind a light soul, in other words a soul of love so that is what she will perceive her soul & everybody else’s soul to be however I on the other hand look at my soul & life period as being grey neither of love nor hate, dark nor light just greyish shades.
In my mind people of light souls of love are here to heal what we have done over the centuries as a species however they will only see souls being of love & light & of course that is only their perception of things. It’s impossible for them to see anything else & maybe they shouldn’t either as this will I feel diminish their effect however on the other hand people who only see darkness within the souls & the world will also have their own perception of theirs & everybody else’s soul as well, what they see & feel is what their own perception is telling them to be true so what is true? Neither & all, it’s neither because it’s grey & it all because it’s grey, it’s all of different shades of grey I feel neither one nor the other however consciousness being what it is we can perceive what we want to perceive so in fact it’s all true this is why there is really no true right & wrong or black & white & if it’s all true it must be different shades of grey however we can perceive these different shades of grey as being white or black or right & wrong at any given time depending in what we want to see & feel.
This of course is saying nothing is just of light nor dark, love nor hate but of something that has no real definition but of course being human we need definition to recognise it from something else like hate from love for instance. So is this also saying the creative source (God) isn’t of love? Yes that is exactly what it is saying however God will be what we perceive it to be through how we see it to be, it’s our perception of what we want to be not what actually is.
Humans in having to need of definition has given rise to black & white, wrong & right but consciousness itself isn’t just of definitions & in actual fact nothing is definable in pure consciousness & this of course is where we get the idea that the ego & related judgment are demeaning, anything of definition is of the ego & judgement so the creative source can’t be definable therefore of neither love nor hate but very balanced & nonjudgmental towards any shades of grey.
Many souls are here right now to heal what has been done so of course they will only want to see & feel love & light because that is what they are here for which will collectively bring us together under love & light however these souls must also be aware of what other souls are all about as well & to stop making judgment onto them as it all has its place within the collective consciousness otherwise it just wouldn’t & couldn’t exist or be.
