It feels like I've been waiting to talk about this for a long...never mind. You get the point. The one thing the whole world follows, the national anthem for life, the "countdown" for human kind. So many things have been said about time, researched, discovered, enlightened and yet we can't understand it.
"I thought practice was at 7? I hope I make it to work. When do we have to be at the airport by?"
These thoughts plague our minds every single moment of every single day. We have "so much to do and so little time". Schedules, routines, projects, work, sleep, events, concerts, activities, commute all divide our days into sections of time. "Why was time invented", someone may ask. To keep track, to stay organized. Employers love hiring people with good "time management" skills, or people who know how to use their time the most effectively.
But when does it all end?
At what point does time stop? It only seems that time is actually getting faster! It feels like it was yesterday that I was in my crib, and now I'm married. Why do humans care so much about time when they do not even know what it leads up to. What is the culmination of time? Where does it all end? Well what if I told you I have the answer?
Genesis. First book of the Bible, says it all. The heavens and earth were created, and so "time began". God's great plan to give man something to keep track of, began. Marking the days, changing of seasons, rotation of planets and galaxies. All designed by an awesome God who knew it all would happen before time ever existed. We are eternal beings either destined to an eternity with or without our Creator.
Time is a mirage. Time is an illusion. Time is temporary. We are all on an eternal path whether you know it or not. Whether you find it out on your office chair, or your death bed. When you die, you will only be meeting up with that eternal body that you were mean't to be with because of time's grip.
Saint Augustine once said, "What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know." Wise words, my friend. wise words.
