In the grandest scope of the All, there is neither balance nor imbalance — it simply is.
The 'simply is' is a substrate which underlies, generates and supports everything that is seen, known and imagined by humans. It is pure consciousness embedded in an infinite field of potentiality, which is the All, the creative source, the unmoved mover, the Present Moment Frequency, God.
The Timeless and Temporal emerge from the unmoved mover, the PMF, the creative source.
The Timeless is stillness/non-frequency/unconditioned and the Temporal is motion/frequency/conditioned and includes the ego.
When we bring more of the Timeless into our experience, we — as Temporal personalities — can at least dance with it, in a dance of balance between Timeless and Temporal, until the day we merge.
In human experience there is an imbalance of the Timeless and Temporal, because the Temporal does not follow the lead of the Timeless. Individuals can balance this in themselves.
In a human dance of balance, the Timeless flows through the yielded vessel of the Temporal.
In the merge, which can happen over many ways, there is transformation of the individual. As individuals are transformed, society is transformed.
I feel restored when entering Yosemite National Park each week, because of the timelessness of the mountains, and Nature less touched by temporal human hands.
The timelessness of the mountains is not absolute, not in the conceptualized sense of an emergence from the creative source, but to one who is attuned, it emanates with a presence which can be felt.

Tim Seamans ❤️❤️❤️ The "pure consciousness embedded in an infinite field of potentially." !!!❤️🙏❤️ Is the "yielded vessel"in a human dance of balance a reference to a deep meditative state or other?
Gary R. Smith It could be meditation, Tim Seamans, as it is a metaphor subject to individual interpretation and application.
For myself, it is awareness in each moment of whether I am in Temporal or Timeless mode, whether I am contracted within or expanded and flowing with what is — and adjusting myself towards the Timeless.
I use Heart Breathing to expand and flow — a sort of active meditation which can be practiced 'on the spot.' Thank you for asking.
Tim Seamans Thank you for sharing and elaborating Gary! Could you see yourself in a situation(s) where being in the Timeless Flow state and performing heart breathing would be extremely difficult, if not impossible?
Gary R. Smith From my experience, Tim Seamans, there are indeed times when I am so contracted inside and removed from feeling my heart and the whole, that nothing I do seems to change it.
However, as I have practiced Heart Breathing for a few months now, I have found I grow stronger, more resilient, and more able to return to the Timeless Flow state.
I have no doubt that Heart Breathing, as a complete and evolving practice, is the most efficient way for me to experience the Timeless Flow in a more consistent way.
Anja van Loon Sometimes you have to stop explaining, after you realize people are only able to understand from their own level of perception.
Gary R. Smith Conceptual understanding remains in the head and has little value. Only when it becomes experiential is it of practical use.
In a previous post:
Anja van Loon 'Once you have managed your balance/mindset (rewritten your programming, unwired your way of thinking) to be able to stay in an overall steady level, you will feel the difference between a permanent state, instead of using compensation techniques to overcome your biological flee, freeze or fight responses.
'Regardless of your circumstances, you will experience an inner rest/peace out of a deep knowing that everything will be alright whatever happens.
'You will no longer use your energy to keep strong or to overcome some emotions/ your biological state like I wrote above. You will be free of stress hormones which destroy your self healing capabilities. You will no longer need to suppress, or 'use' alcohol, drugs, nicotine, or other elements to seduce or activate some brain parts, or to create a hormone flow by overeating, sex, gambling, social networks, dancing, extreme sport, fast driving, etc. to compensate.'
Gary R. Smith Anja, what you describe certainly has value and sounds wonderful. Who wouldn't choose to experience 'an inner rest/peace out of a deep knowing that everything will be alright whatever happens,' especially when that is not a fleeting momentary experience, but a permanent state?
Do you live in such a permanent state? Do you no longer experience stress, ever? Even H.H. the Dalai Lama would not claim that. He apparently can be thrown out of a permanent state of peace by a mosquito! His own account is given in the gorgeously funny video below.
