Dear Goddess, Today I want to write about my father’s watch, pictured here. I have been wearing it. I find that it has a mesmerizing quality. I am not sure whether tuning into a watch slows or quickens the concept of time.Time is, after all, only a concept. It is exactly what you make it, no more, no less. I suppose you could say that about everything, but time lends itself to a perceptual model for everything that happens to you in this lifetime.
First of all, there is your time, my time, the world’s time, and intergalactic time, and all the time in between.
And then there is no time. That is where we dwell when we are creating art, writing or dancing prayers, or listening to or singing opera. I called the pharmacist last night at the hospital, and she was listening to opera as she was filling medicine orders. The experience of listening to opera while talking about a drug order, had a time stretching effect.
My father used to meditate on jazz music. The watch that you see here today was on his arm as he contemplated the music. When Dad disappeared, we knew he was sitting in front of his stereo system, listening to one of the Jazz greats. Duke Ellington was his number all favorite.
Last week, my dad’s 102-year-old sister passed on. I received the watch two days before her death. The first day the watch stopped at exactly 510 in the afternoon. The watch stopped at exactly 510 the following day.
That was the day and the time of death of our aunt’s passing. The watch has been functioning flawlessly ever since.
There is no rational explanation for the story. But it does offer insight into the subtle communication that exists between all worlds. Be open to these. Time warps exists everywhere.
Can a simple watch unlock the secret meaning of time?
Om Peace Amen
