Time Travel

How close are we to traveling through time? If traveling though time means to move from one place to another place where there is a forwards or backwards time lapse; then, in essence every time you or I charter a jet (or fly commercial) to another country or time zone- you are traveling through time. This is clearly the obvious observation of Time Travel- moving from Time-Zone to Time-Zone. Unfortunately, this type of Time Travel does not have the Back to the Future (movie) flair. Don't be disappointed, there is another form of Time Travel- a form that we use everyday that we may not realize- within one's mind- within one's IMAGINATION.

Have you ever dreamed of the past and all of a sudden become quite angry or sad or happy for that matter. Have you ever got lost in a dream?

Now, we may not have the ability to fly through time to visually see our future or fix errors of the past; nevertheless, that is what the IMAGINATION is for. We are all on a path; this path provides a glimpse into the future and our memory provides a glimpse into the past. Your memory, your experience, & your inner-scars are your gateway to Time Traveling- Use it Wisely & Cautiously. I have seen many "travel back-in-time" (within one's memory & imagination) to places where they were sad or hurt often being distracted by great lessons, failing to "Time Travel" (within one's imagination) into a prosperous future.

In concerning that matter, I will leave you with this important thought...When you look to the past or the future in YOUR Time Machine, choose where you go wisely. If you failed yesterday then DO NOT get in the Time Machine (your Imagination) the next day and wallow. Hop in YOUR Time Machine and either set the destination for a happy or good memory of the past or set the destination for what YOU WANT in the Future.

like sam said above, i never though about time travel like that. but more importantly, this post was kind of timely in that i just talked to someone who was stuck in that "negative" past and was very down about not being able to move forward. i told this person that as long as one is alive, they have the opportunity to keep trying. additionally, i forwarded that person to this blog post. i hope that it will help that person move onward no matter how many times it takes. great post.
