Time, what a strange little word it is, it is often written connected to other words that denote a particular time – day, night or event – breakfast, tea, it is as if adding “time” to the event it, somehow, anchors that moment down, defines the use of the moment, solely, to that event. Some think by not adding the extra definitive time would, somehow, be lost, just slip by through inattention and no-one wants to lose time, time is far too precious and the fear of not having enough can drive some into true panic. Time, to us, is merely a concept, we have no need to acknowledge it but we understand time is essential to Earth life but essential does not equal crucial. Modern man has the ability to define time down to the millisecond, now not even the tiniest amount of time can escape the notice of man. Ancient man, of course, had no such technology, their form of time keeping was more resourceful and innovative, using the natural world around them. The loss of what you would understand to be five or ten minutes would be as nothing to them, their schedules would have been much more flexible. Sunrise meant when one could see and sunset meant when one could not, no numbers to check, just nature to observe and their plans laid accordingly. Not many of you could imagine living that way now, every action you take in any normal day is regulated by the numbers on your watch and being able to see or not is no restriction, one simply flicks on a light. Nature cannot, in all situations, control your doings – what a pity. The Earths natural rhythmic cycle is much more suited to mankind and all things living than the cold, mechanical ticking of a clock. Could you imagine expecting a flower to bloom to coincide with a particular time on a clock just because that is when you have time to view it? No, that will happen in it’s own time, natures time. You all have responsibilities and needs that must be met and a well structured day is the best way to achieve this but, we ask, that when you are able, you pause to observe a sunrise or sunset, breathe in the glory of Mother Nature and witness the moving perfection of time unanchored by man. Behold the beauty of life’s true time keeper and fear not the loss of time, beloved children, know that all time is held safe within the rhythm of life and all that you wish to see bloom will do so when it’s time is right.
