What happens when we speed? What does "coming to a screeching halt mean"? What if we just paced ourselves? Does speed kill?
Time is no more that an indication that there was a "then" as it relates to "now". That's all it is. It is there as a "reminder to help us remember". If we don't have the time it's difficult to remember. That means we are in too much of a hurry to do that.
As we regard it to the future, we assume that it will end thereby alluding us to believe it had a starting point. It is reflective in the so many ways it bothers us. "If we only had the time?" What in the hell does that mean?
"Hey, just STOP...................and think about it", ha! Ever said that before? Ha! Man if we just knew what we were truly telling each other when we say that, huh? Time is such a imposition! "Hey man, slow down you're going too fast". Yet time just keeps moving on, Huh! Yep, it surely does.
Now when we think of our destination, where ever that is, how fast do we want to get there? Can we "make it in time and on time"?
What if we regarded time as just a constant and left it at that and just aligned our selves with the flow of it; no beginning, no end, just the flow of everything in a forward direction. Would we lose track of it? I think not. The mind would have the time to do that for us.
Now I know that is a tall order for me to convince you of that. Unless you've been there yourself, it is truly difficult any one who hasn't to imagine. If we regarded time as "just a reminder" of a past commitment and only that we would always be on time every time all the time; then it would matter to a certain degree.
So now it is prudent to ask not what time is, but what it is that makes us rush? This is important because when we rush, speed, get in a hurry mentally and physically all hell breaks loose. We are telling us what hell is all the time and we regard it little, because we have done that in all ways and all days.............so far.
Don't you think it is time we stopped to listen to ourselves and what we are saying to each other in the words and phrases we are using to communicate with one another. Do we have to scream before we can hear? It sure seems that way. Perhaps if we stopped to think about One language, one voice, one people, one Earth, one universe we might understand why time is killing us as we rush through it. Now not all do that, but those that do are hurting us all.
Yeah, time is truly a killer and so is speed. It really screws up that time and mind equilibrium when we regard it and focus on it the way we do especially in the way we regard it as "running out of time". Damn what a horrible thought that is; damn, damn, damn and triple damn, ha!
Now you might ask William, how can we not worry about the time we have left. That's easy, stop worrying about it. Stop trying to figure it out; just role with the flow. Stay focused in the moment don't let "now and then" be a concern of yours. The mind knows what was and will, if you do not rush it, tell you what it is you need to know in that moment. It is precise, exact and never wrong if you don't bother it so.
Now once you do that, you will then see what it is you need to see, hear what it is you need to hear, returning you to your senses and allowing them to do what they were intended to do. What that is, I haven't a clue; I can only imagine what that could be. How much more can we communicate with each other that is beyond what the senses alone offer?
If you could only see me and all the ways that I offer in my communication with others in the flesh it might help. It's really difficult to do than in such a black and white linear medium as this so surely is. Words alone can't do it. You need they eyes they hear better than the ears ever could. If one cannot see then the ears see for them. If we just stopped trying to figure every thing out I think we would really know what "coming to ones senses" really means in ways we could never imagine. What time is it? I don't care to know. It's just a reminder just in case I might have "forgotten" something.
