Aw geez! Every time someone brings up the concept of time suddenly I am out of time and find myself racing against time just to get a word in
edgewise. Is there enough time to address the very real problems that come with time? What time is it? It's time to ask what time it is, that's
what time it is. What is time? Is it a linear phenomenon that moves backwards and forwards or is it something else all together? Is it at all
possible that time is nothing more than the eternity of now here? Every moment we experience is here right now...now here. Ironically, the exact
very moment that now here comes its gone and another now here replaces it. Or, at least that's the way it appears to us who experience each moment
in time in a distinctly linear fashion.
It is we who have a beginning, middle and end and to some degree all matter seems to have a beginning, middle and end, but it truly appears to us this
way because it is the way we perceive time...or, at least it appears to be that way now here in the flesh. Our own experience is our past and our
targets and goals are the future we want but we are flesh and bone and know damn well that what that future holds is body death. Thus, the older we
get the more time we are running out of, the younger we are the more time we have, even if our future brings and untimely demise. Whew! The Rolling
Stones in their early years sang about time being on their side and then as they got older sang about time waiting for no one. How's that for not
getting any satisfaction?
What if there is no time and there is only the now here, and what if we just remove the space between now here? Then what we've got is nowhere!
What if all there is, is nowhere and all the time there is, is nowhere at all, and all this body death is just the necessary inhalation and exhalation
of immortality? What I mean is, every moment exists at the same time indistinguishable from any other moment as if moments so thinly layered and
placed upon each other as to never have any proportion just one big now here, which is nowhere at all and we have all the time in the world...the
What if this concept is not just a clever use of words and a strategic arrangement of letters but that words are more than just strategic placement of
letters and have a vibrational power very much in tune with the universe...well, eternity, that exists now here? What if every word we utter
profoundly affects our own future and the now here's we experience, those moments we have in the present are actually moments we have pre-sent to
ourselves, either as a present like in gift or more tragically like coal in a stocking type of present?
What if all our efforts to travel back in time just waste our time better spent in the present, and what if the future is now? What if we are the
masters of our destiny and the captains of our soul? What if we bring to ourselves the future we want, wittingly or unwittingly, we pre-sent the
moments we experience now here, through our thoughts and deeds and this is the future of our own making? What if this is very real and the realer it
gets for us the easier it gets to pre-send a future now? What if we truly become masters of our own destiny and being captains of our soul we stop
wanting and we just start having? What if what we want to be we become by first being that what we want to be then doing that which makes us what we
want to be then we have what it is we want to have?
That would be time travel, wouldn't it? If we spent less time worrying about the past and what we want and more time just having what we need and
being who we should be, wouldn't we necessarily create the future now instead of later? The trick, I guess, would be knowing what we need and
knowing how to get it, but then again, maybe we all ready know but just forgot to remember!
Maybe if we spent less time learning what we think we need to know and just remembered what it is we all ready know we'd get to where we're going a
lot quicker than when we're spending so much time working on getting there...there being now here, which is a lot like being nowhere at all? What if
that's where we're all going? Nowhere, right now, right here, nowhere at all? If all were doing is going nowhere then what the hell is the hurry?
Take your time, enjoy the journey...all the now's that come here now...oops there goes another now...and another one...and another one...hey! I'm
running out of time. Nope. Still got it. See? It's right here, right now...I'm just saying, that is all.
