Does time really exist or is it just a construct, constructed, deconstructed and reconstructed for our relative understanding of things and of life in relation to it?…
…and then again, since we understand most subjective matters in a relative context to its objectivity, after personifying them, like feelings with regards to words and their usage, like being soulful or soulless with regards to music and life, like mindful or mindless generally with regards to the Brain, life via a physical body but rarely in terms of a force happening all around and within us(collectively), God as personified, in objective reality, as he or she (generally as we see ourselves) forgetting that maybe like everything mentioned above, it is omnipresent and omnipotent and maybe it’s even time, life and force, the moving-expanding, contracting and even present the stillness. What if we could personify Time, like God, like Life, in the image of ourselves? It may then probably talk and convey to us, what we need and want to hear, in the language we understand. Wouldn’t that be so much fun?…
Time, like life, a forever true constant companion, our partner in all our breaths and out of breaths, in all our steps, in all our thoughts, in all our feelings and emotions, in all our joys and our pains, in all our laughter’s even through our tears, in our losses and our gains, in all our now’s and our then’s?
How amusing and amazing is it, that when we/life is completely present in time (the moment), it just aligns itself inside out and outside in…and just a few days back, I came across this quote (once again) by Robin Sharma “Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it life” and it rang a bell…
Let’s connect the dots with a few other quotes and see how we connect it with ourselves both collectively and individually.
- “History keeps repeating itself but the man never learns from it”.
- “Man is not only afraid of the known coming to an end but is also afraid of the unknown.”- Jiddu Krishnamurty
- “Insanity is doing the same things over and over again, expecting different results”- Albert Einstein
- “We cannot solve the problems by using the same kind of thinking the way we created them”, now connect this once again to the above 3 and we keep repeating the same thing over and over again…and then again connect this to the quote by Robin Sharma and we keep repeating the same things, spanning generations, with different names and different masks, re+playing a reality, virtual or a facade. They don’t say “Old habits die hard or Man is a creature of habits or Chip of the old Block or A leopard never changes it spots”, without a reason, invariably also implying- “born and made out of our habits”, we relatively keep bringing back the same time, patterns over and over again.
So, let’s repeat the same thing (being creatures of habit :)) and ask once again, what if we could personify TIME, in the image of our own self, What would it say? Would it keep running busy, breathless, bored, overworked, underutilised, happy, sad, smiling or teary-eyed, mindful or mindless or what if it just relatively stopped, looked at us straight in the eye and said, “I’m really tired of you replaying the same S*** over and over again?”. Are you really that incapable of creating a newer game, for a relatively newer version of you to be born over and over again? Can you recreate a better you alongside a better me, to relatively play better games, live better lives, over and over again?
