I just watched The Lake House, which is a wonderful movie about how two people were able to connect with each other deeply, even though they were living in two different timelines, two years apart.
I watched it years ago, but this time it made a bigger impression on me, and I think it’s because of how time is warping and realities are bleeding through more and more. The idea of time travel no longer feels so far-fetched.
In the movie the man and woman who thought they didn’t know one another, who were seemingly just tenants of a lake house, each in their separate time lines, hers was 2004, his 2002, were able to connect with each other, initially only through a shared mailbox, the lake house mailbox.
When the woman moved out of the lake house, she wrote a letter to the next, future tenant, placing it into the mailbox, asking them to please forward any remaining mail to her new address. But in the new tenant’s timeline, the man who subsequently moved into the lake house, the former tenant’s new address, a condo, was not yet constructed. This he discovered when he tried to deliver her mail to her in person.
Another perplexing event was her apologising to him about her dog’s pawprints (the pet had walked in wet paint) in two separate places at the lake house. But when he searched for them, there were none to be found anywhere.
Through their correspondence they began to realize that they were both living in separate time lines.
Through letters to each other they began describing their respective lives and the time frames they each lived in. The lake house mailbox became their portal of connection.
They come to discover their past, younger selves had mysteriously crossed paths, even met and kissed, before they knew what was really occurring between them.
THERE’S NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT
As we move more and more into our multidimensional selves, we begin to realize that time and space are illusions, designed to help humans to focus on a particular experience, or lifetime at a time. Even though past experiences are never really erased from our memory, we have some safeguards so that we won’t be overwhelmed with all of that information.
But outside of this carbon-based reality, time is simultaneous. Or, another way of saying it is, there is no time.
Of course, like most movies of 3D, it was about a man and a woman seeking one another out, and believing they wouldn’t be happy until they were able to come together in the same timeline.
But we know that what they were seeking in each other was their own soul, their own self. The man wanted to drink from his own feminine, and she from her own masculine.
I tried to get past the Hollywood boy meets girl theme, to experience the movie’s magic of how multidimensional we are.
So watching the flick again was really enjoyable, and the premise no longer seemed fantastic to me, but rather felt like a perfectly logical truth. In fact we are communicating with our past and future selves more than we realize. It’s just below our conscious awareness,
And, as in the movie, we can influence those past and future selves. Because there are an infinite number of potential timelines.
What I found most fascinating is that, to the average viewer, the boy meets girl would be the perfectly normal perspective, while the time warp was the fantastic (illusory) part. Yet, as we move our level of awareness higher, it’s the diametric opposite.
If you have read this post up to this point, you may be thinking, “hmmmm, Maria has way too much ‘time’ on her hands.” Maybe so. But regardless how much time I do have, I will not be watching Hot Tub Time Machine.
