Do I spend time or does time spend me?

Post by Mickiel »

What a question that I ask myself now , I wouldn't have even asked this 30 years ago. I ask now because of wisdom and because the bag is full of foolishness. Time is a serious teacher and it gets between our ears and molds our minds like nothing else.

How did you spend your time today, or did time spend you? Did you allow yourself to be manipulated and swept through the day?

Do I spend time or does time spend me?

Today another morning of TV when I should have been outside mowing. went to store, post office, came home sitting on the computer. Too many days lie that. Don't spend enough time outside.

Sound wisdom.

As I grow older my time is vastly differently spent , my values are evolving and becoming something new'- even to me. I am introducing myself to myself.

Destiny and control are illusions of the Ego.

Then I have some male friends who are Lord's of illusion. They think women are their servants.

They sound more like victims than "lords"

How we interpret life is a part of how it will interpret us. And I think how we interpret time will also determine how it will place it's Mark on is. In some circumstances time itself is a circle and it will keep coming back to it's origin. Nothing really new to it's identical path. An enormous dejav ...a continuous repeating of spent energy efficient power. And time becomes our tool to examine it, because I think it's examining us.

Humans live in the construct of time, limited and being recorded. Like wearing chains time restricts us all. As I consider God and his Eternity, it frighteningly moves me. Because I am Finight and must see A beginning an end to things. How GOD has managed to exist outside of this is beyond my understanding. His eternity is amazing. It scares my look into his comming kingdom.

God had always been and will hallways be. And his gift to humanity is eternal life! A stunning look into our future. To actually live forever and ever. Its just hard to digest,. Hard to imagine. Hard to believe. When we shift from Finight to infinity it will be an incredible evolution. Time will no longer even exist

God then is the ultimate conduit, the very powerful key to life. He must be quite something, just ozzin in great ability and knowledge. Walking in eternity as if it's nothing to it.

Time then is a temporary tool of God as of now. And time is spinning along a predictable pattern. We exist in a temporary body that wears out and dies.

And time dies with us!
