How Much Time Do You Have Left to Give

by James R. Yarbrough

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.
