So we always have the saying Time Heals all......... but that is utter bullshit, or is it?
We have all seen time as it runs though the hour glass... and we have our own view of this. Each sand grain could reflect something in our lives or it is just a sand grain.
So time according to Gerrie... this is my personal view due to experiences...
So whom controls time, is it father time, is it us or do we just let time control us?
Time is not really in control, we let time control us because we want it to. I realised this the other night as I Visited a friend of mine, Hubre, we have not seen each other for number of years. And we sat down and we had cup of coffee. Hubre opened the Wine and before we could start I needed to first tell her about the out first time together... after that we chatted we had wine we chatted as we were in control of time. We enjoyed the view from her patio over the Paarl Mountain’s and I enjoyed her company... when I decided to say it is time to I realised we spend 8 hours of quality friend time. Time was not in Control as we decided to not have time control us.
We let time control us, when we in the Rat race where the Rats are winning. We decide to not make time for our friends. And then we blame time.. sorry there was no time, I did not have time... always time’s fault our easy way out.
So time we have broken it down in seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks...... how long is a second, how long is a day..... How long is it when we lose someone close to us, really close to us. And really lose, that day when you close the coffin, how long was that second that day that week .... for me it is continued it never ends there is no time that you can take for this as it never ends. That day, that second is with you for life. So time heels....... well that is a debate.
So time is time it is not just seconds or minutes or hours it is time. One thing is that we need to control it. We need to decide what it is and what it means in your life.
One thing is true that the time we have on this earth we need to make the best of it, we need to enjoy and truly live life. I have been fortunate to restart my life a number of times while on earth, and that is actually a blessing. One thing that we learn with time is that although we are planning the future planning the next day planning time we can’t and we should not. As time goes we are busy crafting our life our future. So is a day a day or is it just the sun passing us by again... this is not proven but I do think that we spend 60 to 70 % planning thinking and then not even doing it. We should life with the view off “rather ask for forgiveness then to have never lived”.
So we ask WIKIPEDIA for time and this is the take from there:
“Time is a part of the measuring system used to sequence events, to compare the durations of events and the intervals between them, and to quantify rates of change such as the motions of objects. The temporal position of events with respect to the transitory present is continually changing; future events become present, then pass further and further into the past. Time has been a major subject of religion, philosophy, and science, but defining it in a non-controversial manner applicable to all fields of study has consistently eluded the greatest scholars.”
So easy from their time is a sequence of events, events creating events.... almost likes Newton’s Third Law “For each action (event) there is a opposite but equal action (event)”. This has been like this in my life you lose people, loved ones or friends, but you gain again. So the circle of time goes on. Whenever you have the opportunity you go to Greenwich to see what time does. The ball moves up and then on the hour it slides down again. Is that not time in our lives then we on top then we at the bottom. But we are in control of it and not anything else.
So now in the life time machine has become a symbol in our life, men are no longer comparing their swords and there swordsmanship with each other. No they are comparing their time machines with each other. They wear it on their wrist as a symbol of success, but in their heart they carry the real pain of Time lost with loved ones.
So in Short what is Time?
Time is not the healer of all, Time is controlling Life, Time creates new beginnings, We as people decide the influence of time in our life, Time is everlasting there is no rush as time will not end.
So for me as Gerrie the following
“I am thankful for Time as it gave me the opportunity to live a number of lives. I could stand up from some of my darkest moments and just Start again. As time goes on I learn that time creates opportunities for what it has taken away. Time makes thing easier but it does not heal. I try to live each day with me being in control of time. So for all of this I am thankful for time.”
