Easy Travel to Other Times

‘Never was there a time in which I did not exist, nor you, Arjuna, nor all these kings, ( before us at the battlefield of Kurukshetra), nor in the future shall any of us cease to be’
– Sri Krsna, 18/66, Bhagavad Gita As It Is.

Herein Lord Krsna reveals His Eternal Being, beyond the gates of time. He speaks of past, present, and future as aspects of one supreme reality, in which God and the souls exist as distinct, eternally. Indeed, He says, ‘Time I am’, indicating that He is the origin and the maintainer of the flow of events that we call time, and He is the Supreme Controller of that time element.

Those seeking happiness and freedom from the crushing wheels of death must ask themselves whether all the fuss and botheration of struggling hard to try to create a position of happiness here, and to keep it going, are of any value. Time destroys all things; in the form of oxidation, aging, homeostasis and equilibrium, violent destruction, gradual decay and death; nothing which we see here in these mundane-time-influenced realms lasts past its ‘time’. To seek any goal in the time restricted worlds means that your long term effort will prove fruitless, unless that effort is directed towards eternal time, wherein all things shall last.

Quantum physics tells us that consciousness effects the movements of even subatomic particles, and that the universe acts as a synchronous connected whole. In Sri Isopanisad, it is stated, ‘isavasyam idam sarvam” meaning that the infinite Whole seperates into infinite tiny expanded particles reflecting and bearing the qualities of the source. As above, so below. Time also has a quantum-like nature, in that there is Eternal time, and there are the relative times of different planes of existence. Lord Krsna says that he is Time Himself.

The Vedas say that the truth is personal, not insensible. That we, as mere tiny aspects of the Complete Whole, have individual awareness, logically suggests that the source of all things also has the capacity for such individual awareness. That that awareness is greater than ours is true, still the idea is that individuals, persons, have their reasoning and preferences and style. If we are to travel in time to a better reality, we shall have to look beyond the current state of science, which has no such capacity except in theory. Modern scientists researching the foibles of matter and energy are missing this crucial point; that loving relations and exchange of beauty and pleasure are essential to any understanding of the universe.

The question of free will arises, otherwise how is it that the future is also apparently foreseeable and knoweable? Some devotees say there is a degree of free will, but my understanding is that actually there are only the reactions of the modes of time-restricted material nature, that in reality there is no free will while entrapped by material conceptions, just as a bound person cannot free themselves unless there is interference from a free person. Whether minute or nonexistent, free will has little value if there is nothing to gain. If we are trapped in a flow called time, can our consciousness and will be utilized as a principle to help us escape?

‘Unto those who are constantly devoted and worship me with love, I give the understanding by which they can attain Me,.’ Lord Krsna says. So, time travel is not only possible, ( in partial agreement with the quantum physics model ), but is done regularly by the pure adepts of Krsna. Within their heart of hearts, they see the Lord in deep trance of love. This love is reciprocated according to the loving propensities and promises of the Godhead, and carries them beyond the rivers of material life and time to an eternal realm, wherein the Lord and His devotees exist eternally, beyond birth and death. This gift is matchless; quite unavailable elsewhere.

By using our will to accept the timeless and spiritually material-time free bonafide spiritual master in disciplic succession from the Timelord Sri Krsna, one gets the opportunity to hear of the Lord’s pastimes, forms, associates, realms, and paraphernalia, all of the same blissful character beyond the trappings of material existence from those who have already escaped mundane time. By the Grace of such Divine intervention, it is easily possible to escape the flow of karma contexts which we experience as a life in linear time, and instead can awaken to experience the realms of eternal time. In this way, by voluntarily accepting the authority and protection of the Supreme Conscious Principle, our free will liberates us from control of time by the exchange of surrendering to the Timelord, Who in turn arranges our passage through time to His eternal planes. This does not require us to die, as the consiousness passes beyond mundane time, even while still encapsulated by the body of material elements.

By chanting the maha-mantra, Hare Krsna Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna , Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare, the gates of time are opened for the pure devotee to pass through to other time realms via this perfection of yoga , wherein it is possible to find true and eternal satisfaction and free love.
