For me magical things seems to happen when I let go of time, and focus on what's in from of me in this specific moment. Often when I lose track of time is when I'm the happiest and also when I seem to create the work that I enjoy the most and afterwards feel most satisfied with.
I had a session once with a time traveller and for some reason I was given insight to the the work that he does. Insight so that I could realize or rather confirm my 'gift' of seeing and for him a confirmation to what he was actually doing in 'dreamworld'. Through him I saw Time as thin sheets of 'papers' that you could step into as if you would open a page of a book and step right into a new realm, a new time line, a new reality.
His purpose was to create new channels/paths between the different time lines so that our 'timeline' would shift in the 'right' direction towards more light. What was interesting was that everything coexisted and so as we change this present moment we are also somehow shifting the past and the future. Everything is coexisting.
When we tap into the present moment we are also tapping into source, through source we can access infinite knowingness. So to be creative or to be re-source-ful is to be in the now, because as you are you are opening up to the infinite powers of the All that Is, of all that You are. But as soon as you step out of the present moment into your mind, into the past or future you disconnect yourself if only for a second.
"Time isn't precious at all, because its an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time - past and future - the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is." Eckhart Tolle
