The very popularity of the book "The Power of Now" and other teachings by Eckart Tolle are evidence of this reality.
That said, my concept of time, and how reality plays out individually and collectively, forward/backward/upward/downward has been continuously shifting of late.
Along these lines, I found an article called "The Art of Jumping Time Lines" to be very helpful in adding shape and color to my new experiences of time/space/reality. I trust you will enjoy and feel a new sense of living after reading some of this material. Here's the first part of the article:
"Although it may seem paradoxical to some, your timeline—your life—is only one of many simultaneous possibilities. And it is quite possible, indeed it is your birthright, to alter your timeline and the potentials of your life."
"Your culture, for various reasons, has hypnotized you into believing that you are limited to one timeline. In this message we shall endeavor to discuss our understanding of timelines and how you can change them."
"Whenever there is an increase of chaotic events, there is a convergence of multiple timelines. Due to the fact that your planet has entered a Chaotic Node and is experiencing ever-increasing levels of chaos, there is also an increase in what we calltime nodes."
"Time nodes occur when two or more timelines converge. As a result of their close proximity oscillation effects sometimes occur when the realities of one timeline bleed through, or are psychically perceived by those on a neighboring timeline. Strong timelines can also literally affect the possibilities and/or probabilities of other timelines within a time node. In other words, creative and novel effects often occur within timelines when they enter a time node (proximity to other timelines)."
"These are evolutionary jumpstarts that hold tremendous possibility for accelerated evolution if you understand how to utilize them."
