Time: Exploring and Transcending Our Experience of Time as Linear (Merry Musings 8)

Linear time is a relatively recent phenomenon of the human experience. It is only a few thousand years old in the context of our three million year journey. Yet experiencing our world through the lenses of linear time – with a past, present and future – deeply determines how we relate to life. How much of our lives do we spend thinking about the past or future, as compared to being in the present? To what extent are our relationships to others determined by our past experience of them or future desires for them? J. Krishnamurti felt this was core to people’s suffering and the pain we inflict on the world around us. This Merry Musing will explore Krishnamurti’s view as well other perspectives on time, in the context of our current experiences and condition.
