Doing Time

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour

William Blake

Turquoise is about a continual renewal of self, the individuation process. Every situation we find our self in, is an inescapable challenge to create our self once again – ever closer to who we truly are.

Bottle 24

Karma is caused by a denial – conscious or unconscious – of the creative potential of the moment. The affirmation for Bottle 24, A New Message, violet/turquoise reads: ‘I am open to the new. I feel the joy in my heart as I embrace the moment.’ Creation is when we fulfil the potential inherent in every moment.

Our attitude towards time is part of the change we are embracing as we whirl into the new aeon, The Age of Aquarius. Of course we need clock time to organise the horizontal dimension of our life – the surface layer of our reality. What we are now adding is the vertical dimension of depth, accessible to us only through the portal of allowing the present moment to be.

Whenever an habitual no turns into a yes – when we allow the moment to be as it is, we dissolve time.

What we are working towards dissolving is the mind’s endless preoccupation with past and future and our resistance to align with the present moment. When we react (an anagram of create) against the form that our life takes at this moment – when the present moment becomes an obstacle – we become addicted to reaction and creativity is lost.

Bottle 75

Only when we can consciously surrender to what is, can we open up the vertical dimension, the dimension of depth in our life. Only then can we reinvent our self, can something come forth from that dimension into this world. Bottle 75, Go With the Flow, magenta/turquoise messages that the more we can let ourselves be, the more our process of individuation can unfold. This brings us in touch with the flow of life.

In so doing we transcend the limiting world of form and create something of infinite value that otherwise would have remained unmanifested.

And we evolve.
