Listen to Learn & Learn to Listen
The right thing done the wrong way will not succeed. Just as the wrong thing cannot be done right. You can be right, though look as if you are wrong by those who are not right. It does not mean that you are wrong, and they are right, they are still wrong. You should let no one turn you away from what you know. Not easily done, but it is. There is no “little white lie” no shades or degrees of right and wrong. They are what they are and it is what it is. Let no one tell you different or should I say, do not listen when they try. Close your mind to it.
You do not have to prove you are right, just be right. To make a change to what is right will not make a thing that is right better. It will not be improved on. If it is right, it is not wrong. More so, if it is right, it should be perfect, to you. Your definition of right should be nothing less. Perfection is not a word or deed you should shy away from. If not to be perfect in the things you do what could be your goal. Perfection in the things we do is a worthwhile goal for all of us to have. We are not wrong when we do. It is not a bad word. It is a Self, defined state of mind, it is personal. If not to be perfect, what then could be your goal. A thing less is less than your best.
You are the one to decide what is right or wrong for you. And wrong will never feel as good as right. Prevention is better than the cure so why not feel better when you should. When you have done the right things, it does not mean all the right things are done. Trying to do the right thing is admirable. To do it is better and the way to go. You must put forth the effort until all things that can be done right, are. When you do it right you will feel right. It is then that you will know how much better it is than what it was. You cannot be caught doing the right thing. How can you do a thing wrong when you know how to do it right? Now that is the question of the day. Ask yourself and see what your answer is.
Our thoughts and how we feel and act will change as we change. There is no better time for change than when it is needed. Change will happen, when you change how you think. This will change how you feel. When you feel better, you will change how you act and your life will change, as well. Our role in life is shaped by how we act. It is how you are known to others for no one can read your thoughts and know your intentions other than by your actions; the things that you do and say. It is what others will use to judge you.
When you do not succeed as you think you should, there is more work to do. We were created to decide the scope and reach of our lives. Observe your world well. And do what you can with the time that you have, which can never be but now. Now is the only time that you have. You should listen to learn. And learn to listen to what your world has to tell you. Do not run from what you should be running to, your Self. We can never run out of time, time runs out of us. Time is space we are not. We only occupy the time we are given.
You can only get there from here. For now, you are here. You will not get there from any other place, but from where you are. You can only get there from here and you got here from there. You were there in the past, now you can be there in the future. You can go back there or you can go to there, it is your choice, which there do you choose. You can only get there from here. For sure, you cannot stay here. Now stands still for no one.
You have to believe it to see it. When you see it, you will know.
Time is like the wind you cannot see, you only see what it does. Do you really know what time it is? —James R. Yarbrough
What is it that makes time so important? Why do we speak about it like no other. There are times what we say about time does not make sense. It is time, your time, my time, what time is it, now is the time. And let’s not forget, I don’t have time for this; so you say.
You will not know when it is time to do a thing until it is done. How many times have you said it is time and it was not? If it has become reality then it was the time. One thing for sure, we live for time. Without it, there would be no space for things to go. Time is space. And all things that exist do so in space. Space was here when we arrived. We are the occupiers. We do not touch space, we only move around in it. We live when it is given.
Time, as we know it, is a concept of “man.” And there are many who cut their time short and they do this not knowing how little time they have. You would certainly think so when you look at some of the things that people do. They do this, of course, because of how they think and how they think is disordered. When you act in ways that hurt you it means that you are hurting inside and there is where it hurts the most. And each time that hurt is acted out it takes from the time that you have to be yourself.
Time Is What Space Is
No matter what time it is time does not change. What happens in the space of time does. Time is not changing, we are. This is what I believe. For you and me, it is personal. It starts for each of us when we are created by our parents and is not shared. You cannot lend nor can you borrow time. And your time is the only time you will have. More time will not be given when you have no more to live. Time; though, is just not as important as what you do with it. When you think of the time that you have, the first thing you should think of is what are you going to do with it. What is just as important, is how you feel while you are doing it. To get the most from the time you have been given, you must understand what it is and how to use it wisely. The longer it takes to know what to do with your time the less time you have to do it. Because for sure, you will not get your time back. Our life moves on even when our mind does not. You can live the past in your mind but you can never be there again.
There are two kinds of time in my way of thinking. It is the time that was given to each of us—our own time—and universal time/space, which is the greatest of all; it was created. It does not change. What I am saying maybe clearer if it is thought of in terms of the world, at least, as we now know it to be. There are seven world time zones. The United States uses nine standard zones. Therefore, the question is, what time is the right time? With every area of the world having its own time zones, how can you know what time it is? Neither of them is correct when next to the other. Time that can change, is invented by man. It is never the same and is not correct. The time that is, which is the time of nature, will always be as long as there is space.
If we had the power over the nature of time, what would we do with it, where would we put it? Would we add a little here, take a little there? For sure, it would be the “final step” to the end. Wars would be fought over time, it would be stolen, and some would lie, cheat and steal to get more of it. Those with no power would get none.
You should not make your decisions based on time. Time will not accomplish a thing on its own. Decide what you want to do, then make good of your time to do it. This should be the order of how you decide. No matter how much time you have, if you do not know what you are going to do with it, you will not know how much you need. What matters is how you are going to fill the space. If you bake a cake for the required time but use the wrong ingredients, you will not get the cake that you want. What you would have, then, is a cake you cannot eat and time you no longer have. This time was your time.
Let us take a look at nature’s time. In a room there are things, they come and go, some are added some are removed. It makes no difference what time these things are moved or changed, the space does not. Time is space. And there is a time for all things when you give it the time that it needs.
