“In shamanic cultures, synchronicities are recognized as signs that you are on the right path.” – Daniel Pinchbeck
We are all familiar with the phrase, time is money – but what if we changed our perspective and shifted to the idea of time being art, and creativity being the new currency?
The film Time is Art explores this idea through a documentary which weaves together an intricate story of how life, death, dimensions, and synchronicities allow for our bigger picture to unfold… if we just allow.
According to the film’s official website:
The documentary film follows Jennifer, a writer who is compelled to make sense of the mysterious and powerful energy she felt at her aunt’s deathbed. A series of strange coincidences leads her on an exploration of synchronicity – the concept that everything is interconnected, and that time is not so much a chronology as it is an infinite cycle. Considering herself something of a skeptic, she treads the fine line between nervous breakdown and ecstatic revelation as she seeks out guides in her search for answers. Together, they explore a reality where time is transformed from a unit that can be measured and commodified -“Time is money”- to an experience of oneness with the natural rhythms of nature and the universe. It is here that the writer discovers that time is, in fact, art.
“Time is Art” is ultimately the story of an artist’s search for inspiration in a money-driven society that shuns creativity, and of the human search for meaning in a seemingly meaningless world. Presented as a cinematic meditation along the lines of Waking Life and Samsara, this film takes an experimental approach that allows us to experience reality as Jennifer begins to see it – one less concerned with linear storytelling, and more open to the cyclical patterns of nature, the hidden meanings of symbols, and the dreamlike overlapping of people, places, and moments.
Compelling conversations with fellow seekers Toko-Pa Turner, Richard Tarnas, Amy Lansky, Graham Hancock, Daniel Pinchbeck and Rupert Sheldrake as well as artists and activists guide us through the underlying premise of the film: perhaps we can tap into a way of being that is not ruled by a finite sense of time, but rather by the ability to live in harmony with the true creative nature of our existence.
As someone who has experienced inexplicable synchronicities firsthand and followed them to find my own personal journey towards enlightenment — I found this film to resonate on a deep level in regards to our collective awakening/evolution. A non-linear cinematic meditation with the spirit of Samsara/Baraka, and a narrative that breaks opens your heart and frees your mind — this is multi-sensory storytelling at its finest. The film’s transmedia approach makes it simultaneously unique/timeless, and truly allows you “see with your heart what was once invisible.”
If you’ve experienced synchronicity and rapid spiritual awakening, then Time is Art will speak to you where words alone fail. This film will give you the courage and conviction to follow your dreams, and a deep sense of knowing that you are fully supported in your journey, as you are part of a much bigger plan which is still in the process of unfolding.
