Kairos is, in Greek philosophy, the aspect of time who brings the possibility of a new way or action into Chronos, which is ordinary linear time, or the path we take without giving it much awareness. But we have to choose it, to take its advice, and actually follow that new path. The book Le Grand Virage de l’Humanité (The Great Turning of Humanity) by Philippe Guillemant explains (my translation): “The ‘passage’ of time can in this way be understood as not existing other than through an act of observation of the consciousness. Which confirms the whole pertinence of the connection between the depth of consciousness and time. Which permits us, now, to define the second time, Kairos, in a way that flows from source, that is to say from a new line of time observed in the bond with consciousness. As long as we stay in the line of the same future, we’re following Chronos. As soon as we change the line of time, we’re following Kairos. When a new line of time appears in the future, we aspire to Aïon. ‘To aspire to Aïon’ means we’ve captured a new future potential in our connecting with Self (through joy [as a confirmation], trust [or confidence], or active intuition) and that we aspire to its realization. But, in order to truly realize it, again we must change one or several times the line of time in following Kairos… who is the guide who conducts us toward Aïon. We will in this way discover the meaning of life.” (page 287) In Guillemant’s work, he speaks of intentioning as the way we communicate with Kairos, and Kairos with us, by setting an intention and asking for insight or help to a specific question or need. Kairos answers in signs or synchronicities that cannot be explained by coincidence.
