The Single Linear Timeline Paradigm is the Source of most Anxiety in the World. Meditation is the cure!
As we look around our selves at the people that are operating in society, we see a ton of anxiety. Even most people that have completely normal lives where everything is balanced out, experience high levels of anxiety.
Then there are the minority who do not. What separates the people who have this anxiety from the people who do not. Is it genetics? Is it chemical / hormonal imbalances?
Well, in some cases it may very well be caused by those things. However, in my opinion the number one reason for why people experience chronic anxiety has to do with their core beliefs about time.
Core beliefs being the conscious and subconscious way that we choose to process the information in the world. By information I mean all aspects of reality as information. Not just text and media.
What forms our core beliefs about time? As Ian Lungold pointed out in his excellent presentations about the Mayan Calendar before his passing, every civilization that has ever existed was centered around some sort of calendar. You can view these videos by visiting my “What is a Tone 3 Jaguar” page that is accessible at the top of any page on this site.
The pre-Judaic civilizations like the Mayans, Aztecs, Incas, and Egyptians centered their civilizations around calendars that caused people to focus on the day and the moment. This is apposed to the current type of calendar that our civilization is centered around.
Our civilization is centered around a calendar that was invented by the Vatican. Named after the leader of the Vatican that was around when the calendar was invented, Pope Gregory, our calendar is called the Gregorian Calendar.
This calendar was spread by the Catholic church to all corners of the globe. They forced cultures that where using daily spiritual calendars to use this type of time tracking calendar instead where ever they could.
So why does this type of calendar cause anxiety? It frames our consciousness into a mindset of constantly focusing on what will happen instead of what is happening. On top of that, it tricks us into believing that there is only one future timeline.
We do not realize that it has tricked us into believing this, but that is exactly what it does. The actual truth is that the future is completely maleable. There is not one timeline that we are cemented to like toy slot cars headed down the track.
The minority of people that do not experience this false time concept induced phsychosis have trained themselves to live in the moment. They have discovered that focusing on what might happen in the future is a completely futile waste of energy.
I trained myself out of this type of mass temporal insanity by doing meditation on a daily basis. Even once you discover that you have been tricked into having anxiety all of the time by the calendar you have been forced to live by since birth, the anxiety does not just suddenly erase itself.
Over time you have to retrain your mind not to jump outside of the moment and into an imaginary future. The meditation that I would recommend is the exact same one that worked so effectively to cure me of this time based mind virus.
That meditation is called Japa. I learned of this meditation from a very intelligent modern day philosopher and communicator named Wayne Dyer. This meditation was kept secret by the ancient mystery schools of Tibet for over 6000 years. Then one day one of the monks somehow contacted Mr. Dyer and gave the instructions for the meditation to him.
The only condition that they had when they gave it to him was that he communicate it to the world the best that he knew how to. Moreover that he not make a personal profit from it. So he put the meditation on a CD, sold the CD, and all of the proceeds go to charity. The name of the CD is “Meditation for Manifestation”. You can CLICK HERE for a link to where you can buy it.
The reason why I am motivated to post this information now is because people in the world need it now more than ever. We are coming to a time where things are going to begin to happen very quickly as compared to the recorded past.
As more and more events become squashed into every moment, people who are still stuck in the linear timeline paradigm will be in danger of having mental breakdowns. This would happen due to chronic elevated anxiety about what is going to happen next.
In conclusion, the next time that you want to turn on the news and watch how the shit hit the fan that day. Or the next time that you want to listen to paranoid people who want to tell you that you are going to die in some horrific disaster.
Or the next time that you feel like the world is running to fast for your comfort level. Take some time out and center you mind back in the moment. Remind yourself that all there ever was or ever has been is right now. The rest is just a fucking story.
The first thing that one needs to wrap their mind around is that the initial goal of an aspiring meditator should be simple. Yes all of the things that you wish to achieve through meditation are possible. However, you need to learn to walk before you can run.
My suggestion would be letting go of the desire of mystical experiences and focus on the goal of training yourself to be in the moment. When we are born, we are naturally in the moment. However, due to the way in which our society has structured itself, we are trained out of this very early.
This is caused by the combination of linear time and core beliefs about time that are taught to us. We are taught from a very early age that we should focus on events of the past and what might happen in the future. Moreover, most of us are brought up to believe that if we do not do this then we will be doomed to repeat our mistakes and not be ready for what is going to happen.
This is all due to the center of consciousness of our society. That would be the mechanical Gregorian Calendar that was forced upon the earth by the Catholic Church. Why is a whole other discussion that wont help you with your questions. If you want to know more about that then you should watch the Ian Lungold Presentation available on either my Recommended Videos Page or The “What is a Tone 3 Jaguar Post”.
Another entrained habit we get into is actually caused by television. When you watch television, you are actually in a form of unconscious meditation. We sit down and “zone out” on what is being displayed in front of us on the screen. This is a huge problem for a simple reason. The way that television is structured is fragmented.
The actual program you watch is not the culprit. The culprit are the commercials. Unwittingly we are training our minds to jump from thought to thought randomly while watching these commercials. Not only that, they hide archetypal symbolist in these commercials which makes the imprinting even more effective.
So the first step you should take is to either stop watching TV, or mute the commercials and close your eyes while they are on. Or even better would be fast forwarding through them with the aid of a DVR. The fast forwarding may not do the trick though. This is because when you do this you are being “blipverted” just like in the Max Headroom series from the 80′s. So if you are going to fast forward through the commercials, either throw your eyes out of focus or close them entirely.

The meditation for training yourself to be in the moment is really quite simple. The one that I learned when I was in your position is called Japa. I learned it from a CD by Wayne Dyer called “Meditation for Manifestation”.
It is a 6000 year old or older meditation that comes out of Tibet. It does not take much time to do every day. In the mourning after you have woken up, you sit in a comfortable chair with your backbone as vertical as it can be while still being relaxed. Next you visualize white light coming out of the earth, up through your legs, then up your spine, into your head, and out of your forehead.
After you have accomplished this then you begin making the sound Ah……., Ah……., Ah……. When you first start this practice you will find that the random thoughts will still continue to flash into your consciousness. This is normal for beginners. The key is not to push against the thoughts.
Allow them to surface and allow them to leave on their own. As you progress doing this every mourning, you will find that the random thoughts will become less and less during your mourning meditation. Don’t expect immediate gratification with sudden results. Just like any learned skill, the progress will come as it will.
The second part of Japa is a meditation that is done at night. This meditation is even more simple than the mourning one. I usually do this meditation laying in bed before sleep. You simply repeat the classic Ohm……., Ohm…….., Ohm…….., while concentrating on nothing but feeling love and happiness.
When you do these meditations you are actually changing the configuration of the neurological pathways in your mind. So long as you are consistent with it, the old pathways which cause random thought will decay and fade. They will be replaced with the new ones that allow you to be in the moment.
After you have gotten to the point to where you can have a quiet mind during these simple meditations, then you will be able to move on to the more advanced stuff like out of body experiences.
Another form of meditation that I have just started recently is called Hemi-Sync. Hemi-Sync actually gets your mind to form a wave front between the two Hemispheres. I have gotten some good results with this. Different results than I got with the Japa Meditation. However, it seems promising as far as accomplishing the same thing as the other meditations do.
