Sacred Time

Posted on 2010-03-16. Filed under: Quotes, Thoughts |

I read this today and it sparked within me, especially given my preoccupation with the concept of time.

A person’s life is a movement through chronological time that is encapsulated on a memorial stone as ‘year of birth’ – ‘year of death’. Our journey from cradle to grave becomes a dash! At times, life does seem to be as fleeting as a mere dash; and in the context of eternity that may be true. One’s physical “three score years and ten” might indeed have as much meaning as a dash – even a minus sign – unless we were simultaneously undertaking an additional journey; the journey through sacred time. This journey is walked on the “highway of holiness”, which is not a dash, a straight line from point A to point B, but a line that spirals ever upwards. It is cyclical in nature, and each cycle raises one higher and instills a deeper awareness and fosters a more intimate relationship with the Beloved of our souls, the One who is the Source of Life and the reason for it all.

Indeed! Thinking from a physics standpoint, the same movement can be perceived as occurring in both a straight line and a helix if the perceiver simply adds an additional dimension to their perception. And in this case, that dimension is most certainly named holiness!
