Back when, we had no idea of what time was all about. But we were told, ‘Tomorrow is another day’. We’d see the second hand of our watch tick off seconds. And we established a ‘feeling’ of what time was.
‘Today’ – – – it’s past yesterday but before tomorrow. And with all other nouns, we learned what they were by inventing our conception of them by our experiences.
We have invented our entire lives. We’ve established what is good and bad. We’ve set boundaries regarding everything. Told ourselves how good we can feel and how bad we can feel. We’ve supplied immutable labels to everything we can see.
We’ve put together ‘answers’ for everything so we know who we are.
What is remarkable is what we tell ourselves if we ever wander off that well-worn path we have created for ourselves, called our life.
All of a sudden we don’t have any stored answers to guide ourselves because what we are dealing with is the Unknown so the customary reply to anything about the Unknown is that of indifference. ‘It takes time to ponder and I have no time so I’m out.’
But, by opting out, you’ve shunned an opportunity to re-invent your life.
The photo above shows a pensive child, apparently lost in thought. Can we not be as a child again? Can we not re-establish the definitions we have for everything, or better yet – leave everything without a definition?
Every sensation we experience is a result of our invention.
But much more valuable is the realization that every sensation we have, every feeling . . . can be Magic.
