How Often Do You Time Travel?
They can’t program what they can’t reach...
Use the phrase “time travel” and you might get a Back to the Future reference in return. In reality, however, time travel is very common. We’re each doing it all day long — and that, my friends, is less than ideal.
Please allow me to elaborate…
Every one of us exists in the present moment. Even when we lived in “the past,” it was the present moment when it happened. As for the future, it’s merely a promise we often take for granted. So… that leaves us: Right here, right now. Yet, we’re allowing our minds to time travel — all day, every day — to an imaginary past and/or future.
More accurately: to a selective and self-sabotaging “past” and “future.” Without mindfulness, it can be daunting to check this deleterious habit.
Mindfulness is a challenging practice. For clarity, here are two definitions for the term:
the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something
a mental state — used as a therapeutic technique — achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations
The path to mindfulness appears deceptively simple, e.g. paying attention, focusing on your breath, etc. But remember, mindfulness is not the finish line. It’s an amorphous journey that requires your ongoing commitment. Yet, it is SO worth it to cease the internal time travel and root yourself in the here and now.
Our brains are incredibly susceptible to suggestion. Meanwhile, we are surrounded by humans and their artificial intelligence bots eagerly seeking to capitalize on this reality. Without diligent intellectual self-defense, we are oh-so-easy targets.
Elites [sic] exploit our humanness to keep us off-balance and compliant. Off-balance and compliant humans will surrender autonomy and rapidly turn on anyone who disagrees with their newly implanted worldview. Look no further than the past two years as proof.
As we move into 2022 — with many of us seeking to derail the dominant narrative and agenda — it’s long overdue that we embrace our inherent superpowers. Let’s begin with our natural ability to stay in the moment. You don’t have to call it mindfulness. For you, it might be focus, concentration, presence, awareness, or intellectual and emotional self-defense.
Whatever word you use, this practice brings us home — to the present where all of our senses are more engaged. We live life more deeply and profoundly. We take nothing for granted. Our minds, bodies, spirits, and souls are operating in synch. Such a state gives birth to an incredible range of experiences that are blocked when we’re coerced into time travel.
What this means in a societal sense is equally as potent.
The fear matrix is depending on you to activate and obey their time travel machines — televisions, smartphones, social media, and all that. They are censoring and programming and conditioning as never before. They’re counting on you to surrender the moment to them. But none of their devious tactics matter if you stay consistently present.
Their deception and their desperation only become more obvious and palpable. You see, the good thing about our minds being so susceptible to the power of suggestion is that we can control what “suggestions” we allow to enter and influence.
Your secret weapon — your easily accessible superpower — is the ability to dramatically reduce your susceptibility to their propaganda. They can’t program what they can’t reach. Stay present.
