Now And Never

      The following are some ramblings on the concept of time I came up with some years ago. I thought I was being original only to find later that others have come up with something similar. And so .....
                                                       Now And Never

      No time to lose. I don’t have time for this. Ain’t got no time.
      When people say any of the above, they are speaking a profound truth, though they may not know it. You see, time does not exist. Never has.
      Time is a concept, invented, by who I suspect was a manipulator of some kind. It is used to regulate the thoughts/movement of others in "pulling the strings" more efficiently.
      Forget the concept of time. There is no past. (If anything, it is a now that is no more.) To lament     "what might have been", to play the game of "coulda, woulda, shoulda", is to waste now on a fantasy.
      There is no future. Once you "get there", it is now. If (for the sake of arguement) the future does exist, it is not what will be, but what might happen to now. The past might be a single conceptual line, but the future might be many conceptual lines. However, to play "wouldn’t it be nice...", to dwell on "could be, might be, maybe", is a waste of now.
      If you must plan for the nebulous future, plan so you can live now. There is no guarantee you will be alive then. Only now really counts as it’s the only thing you really have.
      Christians and theologians have speculated that Heaven is the eternal now. I say now is eternal everywhere. It is always with you.
      Some will say time exists because of solar cycles, seasons, weather changes, ageing, etc. Not so. (Forget calenders, clocks, seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, years, decades, centuries, etc. These are manipulators inventions.)
      These things are the result of movement. The sun goes "up and down", not due to the passage of time, but because of the earth’s rotation. Seasonal change occurs from our planet’s slightly eliptical orbit around the sun. Ageing results from the interaction of our physical selves to the constantly changing now around and in us.
      Again, these things are the result of movement. The interaction of  things and forces with one another in the great design of the universe.
      The secret of good physical living, is not to avoid wasting time. But, rather, not to misuse now.
