The Thursday Thesis - 10/11/2016
“Now: Hear This.”
I own a best-selling book on Time Management.
It’s rather a nice book, well-written, and with a jolly picture of a clock-face on the front.
And It is, of course, 100% pure wrong.
Don’t get me wrong - the book is fine, as books go.
It’s 100% pure wrong because the central idea of Time is wrong.
For humans, Time does not exist in any substantial sense and therefore we can exert no influence over Time.
How then, could we ever hope to Manage it?
Time is an illusion invented to allow mankind to make sense of life and our place in the world.
But we can only ever live in one instant – the Now.
Yesterday’s gone, and tomorrow is a dream away.
This is Now.
My Question is this – what will we choose to do with this one scintilla of life?
We might choose to spend the only true reality – the Now – trying to recapture a yesterday that no longer exists. Or we’ll perhaps wish for a dream that tomorrow will bring into Now, then cruelly spirit the dream into another yesterday...
Worse still, we could worry about tomorrow’s dream being a nightmare that will somehow arrive and never leave.
Or we could choose to savour the Now, knowing that it must pass, as all things do.
My friends, in just 48 hours, your tomorrow will have become your yesterday.
I ask you - how will You choose to be, feel, and live, right here in this Now?
