If time is relative, can we time travel? Sadhguru replies, past, present and future are not 3 different geographical places, but all one happening. He describes the relationship between space, time and gravity, and their significance to the spiritual process.
Questioner: If time is relative can we time-travel?
Sadhguru: (Laughs) So you want to go into the past or the future. Isn’t… Isn’t this the biggest problem in the world – people are time-travelling within themselves? They are trying to live what happened ten days ago, or they’re trying to live what may happen day after tomorrow, hmm? Time-travel is the biggest problem, don’t seek it, it’s already a great problem. Now that’s not what you are asking – you want to know what happened in the past or you want to know what’ll happen tomorrow. When he said, “Mere bare me kuch bolo (Please say something about me),” whatever (Laughter) what he is telling me is why don’t you time-travel for me and tell me what’ll happen tomorrow, okay? Yes? That’s all he is asking. So I have to wear my astrological clothes (Laughter).
See if you transcend your physical nature there is no such thing as time. Ihere is in… In India in this culture we have a word called trikala gnani, that means one who knows past, present and future. This does not mean he is time-travelling, that is a… what these Hollywood movies which misunderstand everything logically and literally… everything that’s said literally.
So why I am saying this is they are always trying to understand everything factually, literally. When we said there is a trikala gnani, they said, “Oh, there is somebody who goes into past, present and future.” See this moment is eternity, I want you to know, it’s question of are you living in the surface or have you… have you… do you have a profound experience of what’s now?
What you think is past, what yeh think you… what you think is future or what you think is now is all one happening, they are not three different happenings. They are not three different dimensions or three different geographical spaces that you can go into and come back. When you use the world travel it suggests movement, isn’t it? I travel from point A to point B, I can’t travel from point A to point A, point A to point A, point A to point A – I cannot travel unless I’m making rounds. So right now when you say past, present and future you are talking about triple A, you understand? It’s A, A, A, it’s not A, B, C. When we say time, in the yogic perception, which ultimately modern physics will come to someday hopefully is, time is the basic aspect of creation – because of time there is gravity, because of gravity everything else.
