Rich or Poor, Everyone has it ... in the Same Amount, yet we all Struggle to Understand it.
Updated: Dec 5, 2019
Pay attention to your surroundings and you will quickly realize that everyone has something to say about time, one way or another. Some will complain about not having enough time, others believe that time is going by too fast. I am sure you have your own opinion of time and probably you think that the years are going by faster and faster. Have you ever consider that these multiple ways of defining time clearly show how little we know about time itself?
Time itself never changes because it is perfect and anything that is perfect doesn't need change. This article has more information about the real understanding of Time and Time Management
The bottom line is that no one can step either forward or backward in time, regardless of how small its unit of measurement (second, minutes, hours, etc...). Everyone is always connected with time one moment after the other. No one can connect with time either the previous or the next moment, a moment too soon or a moment too late. This is why I mentioned that "Now is the only gift of life that connects us to time and that is the reason why it is also called 'Present'"
Why are people struggling to understand the notion of time?
It would be easier for those who studied Motion in Physics, they can easily understand the notion of Point of Reference. As we mentioned earlier, time doesn't change because it is perfect. That's also why, even when we attempt to define time, we always say that "Time is ..." and only whatever comes after that expression changes.
What is perfect is also immutable therefore only the imperfects are subject to movement towards perfection. Everyone knows that our planets and universe are in constant movement. This movement follows a well defined cycle with clearly defined stages: Conception, formation, maturation, and disintegration. This is the cycle of evolution towards perfection for every matter inside the dense plane in Creation.
Since earthly human being are incarnated (or trapped) spiritual beings in bodies that are made with the same substance, consistency, and elements as for all maters, they too have to undergo some of the stages of the cycle of evolution. It is just like someone who is flying in an airplane going hundreds of miles per hours. At some point, inside the plane, it feels like nothing is moving while for someone on earth, there is no question about who is moving and who is not. It is said that the surface of the earth at the equator moves at approximately 1,000 miles per hour, but yet for us, it doesn't feel like it. It is also said that earth is moving at a velocity of 67,000 miles per hour around the sun, yet it doesn't feel like it. Everything feels still.
A human brain is excellent at doing only two things in order to build logic: Measuring and counting. So for a heavily intellectual individuals, to make sense of the movement that we are experiencing alongside our environment, we measure how far we've travel by marking points of reference. These points of reference are what we know today as units of measurements for time. Once they are marked, we count and group them. For instance, seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, and years are the way we try to make sense of our journey in time. Each unit repeats itself at a regular frequency and numbers have been identified to group these units into small chunks. The most commonly used numbers are 60 (60 seconds = 1 minute; 60 minutes = 1 hour), 24 (24 hours = 1 day), 7 (7 days = 1 week), 4 (4 weeks = 1 month, 4 seasons), 12 (12 months = 1 year), etc...
Even someone who lived in the same location for their entire life, will tend to look back and think that the times have changed as opposed to acknowledging the obvious reality that they are the ones who have changed, and with change, they also perceive their environment differently. We can all remember back when we were young and we had the impression that time was moving slowly even though everyday still has the same amount of hours, each hour still has, 60 seconds and a second hasn't changed. The older we get, the more it seems that time is flying. When we change positively, things start to appear more vibrant, more beautiful, less changing, more still, and so on.
In summary, we are the one in constant movement and we are the one constantly changing. With our constant change, our perception of time changes as well. The more ennobled we become, the faster our internal movement, and the closer it gets to stillness giving the impression that we are one with time. This is why it is said in the Bible "A thousand years is as a day" in Paradise. This is just like when you see the rotation of the blades of a helicopter. At some point, they look as if they are still, but they are not. They are simply vibrating (moving) at a higher frequency. The less ennobled we become, the slower our internal movement, the heavier we get, and everything seems to drag.
