Time can not stand still

             I must admit that realties do change and most of the time there is nothing pleasant about it. Few adults have arrived at adulthood without their own handful of scrabbled cosmic eggs! And our eggs get scrabbled because the conscious real estate we have built our mental houses and foundations on are all tied to time; and time as we know, “stands still for no man.” But we try anyway to anchor it down. To make it stay the same. One way we do that is to divide it into cycles.            It’s nothing new to equate reality with cycles. The Greeks and Native Americans have equated realities cyclically for centuries. This going in circles gives us peace, like the dog chasing its tail, until it tires out and falls asleep! Besides it’s easy to look at the past and pick up a pattern. Thus the phrase, “What the hell was I thinking!” comes to mind. But you can do it.            But we never learn. We constantly ask the same questions over and over; why do things have to keep changing? And I don’t mean necessarily for the best. I mean we like it the same. Our mental ADD, demands that once we learn it, it should dam well stay that way. We would love to say to the rest of the evolving world, my way or the highway, but it doesn’t work that way.              It is hard to understand, but the reality on the street is that; no control is not the demon most would have us to believe. No control is freedom; freedom from the locks and chains of past cultures and freedom from having to get it right again and again. We are all free wheeling here and the Chaos if we let it, can be beautiful. Like a many celled organism our humanism is firing on all cells from a million plus outlets twenty-four seven ever second we are alive. Each one of us is delving or not delving into their own world as individuals and as members of this big group we call humanity and no matter how small you think you are you are part of it all.              You get your tickets at birth and your can either ride or be ridden. Sure you can think that the lucky ones get born here, others get born there. But whose to say what happens there won’t have a greater effect on mankind than what happens here?.            So don’t try to hang on, and rest in the fact that even if you do let go, you can’t fall up…..not even if you tried or had all the time in the world to do it……
