Chronos Steals

 

“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.”
— John Burroughs

 

The clock on second hand wings
soars away with me running after
in frustrated yearning
seeking that extra hour
for laughter with a friend
or tears with another
or a few more moments to read
or make love
or just fuck
Even a song would be nice
yet Chronos steals our moments
and we must make do with what’s left.
Still so much better than
not having a clue
of what to do.
— G A Rosenberg

No Tale in the Present

 

“You are not any of the stories you believed about yourself. What you are is actually the absence of story. That’s why the Buddha said, “There is no self.“”
— Adyashanti

 

To live in a story
is to live in a moment
that is not now
for tales imply an ending
a past already wrote
but the present is ever written
gone when word hits page
or lips.
Once upon a time..
a time not now
in a place
not here
but gone
the now may be spoken of some day
when it has become then
but our moment our now
is happening so no tale
in the unfolding..
— G A Rosenberg

Each Second

 

“No such thing as spare time
no such thing as free time
no such thing as down time
All you have is life time
Go.”
— Henry Rollins

Each second counts
a lifetime of moments
wasted? Lived!
Yet so many
slip by
without awareness
doing what?No
Does it matter
without the mind
and spirit
to be present
We add the live to life
with be-ing and will
The clock is ticking
and our lives are our own
if we own them
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

Conscious Management

 

“It was a Friday afternoon. Richard had noticed that events were cowards: they didn’t occur singly, but instead they would run in packs and leap out at him all at once.”
— Neil Gaiman

 

Life erupting at breakneck speeds. Sometimes it seems that we go from event to event crisis to crisis putting out one fire only to find out that two more have taken their place. We definitely live in a world faster than the one I remember growing up. I don’t know that that’s a bad thing. We are all learning new time and stress management skills all the time yet sometimes I wish things would slow down and just stop. I used to say routinely that I would like to know what a routine day was like because each one feels widely different than the last.
Yet i realize that it is not necessarily life that has to slow down but me. I have to take the time to enjoy each moment. I need to meditate for awhile each day and not do anything. Yes, there are always things that are calling for my attention and time yet it is not always necessary to heed the call. I am not saying that there is a need for strict rules. I tend to rebel against those anyway. More that I need a way to give body, soul, family, friends and work enough attention each according to need. In other words I have to make conscious decisions. The unconscious ones tend not to work anyway.
Blessings, G

Beyond Time — A Rambling

 

“You should know now that nothing begins
Nor does it end.
Things are ever-present.”
-Grant Morrison

 

To see beyond the imposition of time is to see things complete as multi faceted gems that contain one’s entirety within them. Everything that we see as having happened or happening or will happen is there in one eternal moment in its perfection. There is nothing or no one that has ever existed for us that is not there for it is all part of that completeness and thus they exist and we can exist with them.
Of course we feel the constraints of time. It is after all a great way of organizing and experiencing things. I doubt anyone of us could handle our existence here without it tho on cold winter nights when we grow nostalgic, it helps to know that beyond the veil of time-space limitations, any person, place or thing continues as do we all.
Blessings, G

Time and Patience

 

“The Two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”
— Leo Tolstoy

 

Time takes and returns
slows down to a crawl
or speeds past like a freight train.
Time sets limits
Chronos is Saturn after all
and the sands keep slipping through.
Patience counters time
while it uses it shamelessly
allowing us to enjoy the present
knowing it won’t last.
Patience has and gives perspective
It tells us that nothing lasts
joy or pain are in the moment
and the moment slips away.
Time tests Patience
and patience outlasts time.
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G
