Something Important

Something Important
it came after reading
a children’s book about time
beautifully researched
not the nursery tale kind
it was all about history
illustrations all thru
showing each new understanding and
how thru time our understanding grew
on the third to last page
from scientist Stephen Hawking
it relates:
“since the arrow of time moves
in the direction of disorder
 (as the universe expands)
time can only go forward, not backward.
If time ran backward,
you would remember the future.”
full stop
oft what we bring back from dreamtime
having travelled to the beyond
is later realized when we live it
witnessing how to the dream we respond
as we are awakening
into our dreams that feel more real
than our old ways of living
we feel the new ways congeal
we recognize as
our dreams now take form
we have dreamed our future
bringing it back to be born
