By the Hour to its End.
The road begins for the element of continuity to unknown.
No matter what we do, we are all bound by time. Some facts of life never end or can’t be changed in any way. We live because we have to live, we do because we have to do, not because we have any choice at all. To some level, life will always be an endless road of questions, struggle and pain.
Sometimes I imagine what life could have been without time. An endless stretch to the unknown. What a beauty I think. Let me say that all men desire this, the immortality in the sense that they can have no end whatsoever.
Over the years I could have not known this but after seeing plenty, having to experience different situations, I have come to the understanding that in this state of mind, body and environment, mortality bound by time is more of a blessing.
Things get overwhelming, boring and the body gets weary. I look at old men and women, and I see what time does, I look at the change in the environment and I see the clear effect of time, I look at the society, I look at the technology, I can see it all changing and changing fast. We cannot keep it all. Only for a short moment.
When we know about time, we can make it our friend and it will serve you better than anything you can ever desire. More so, I am made to believe time is the best friend of man. When you reach the age of self conscious, analyze time and see how to make it your friend.
Look to the end to find answers for now, the present that is. They say the end justifies the means. In most cases in does, even here to a certain degree the end will help you to justify your means. Gauge your time in life, get to know that no one lives forever and that the hour when departing this place is a secret of which only the creator knows of. This is a great place to start, because if we recall most instances where individuals who are terminally ill are told that they have a certain number of days to live, they usually alter their priorities and make important ultimate decisions to count for the end. Why not learn from this. We are all terminally ill from not knowing the day to die. Make amends with each day as it comes and goes. That’s what is important.
Time waits for no man, time waits for no living soul. Get in the game, when you fall rise up, for the game will still go on, when you rest get back in for the game is still going on, there is no stopping, just a moment to catch a breath. If we stop, when we stop we are dead men already.
Time is slow, just the right pace for the living, not too fast not too slow, let us also get in the rhythm, the right pace, the central equilibrium. We rush things, because we are afraid we will be left behind, no not at all, we are the ones who are leaving life behind. Sometimes we become slow ourselves and life leaves us behind. Both sides are not good if you stay in them for too long, just for a moment is okay.
To live with time is the secret. See to it that every moment counts, that smile even for a second, should count, the love you feel should be in memory, the work done should be a blessing, the relationships formed and broken should be part of the bigger end. Nothing should go for nothing, that is, if you know and believe that they are for the ultimate glory.
Make time your friend, understand it, live by its rules and it will live by yours.
Disobey it, dishonor it and it will take you by your feet and pull you deep into the suffocating ground. You will die slowly as you look at yourself in the mirror of life.
