Chained to Time

August 31, 2016

From A Page In My Journals

Try to imagine life without time keeping. Within today’s path of being I doubt you can. You know the month, the week, the day, the hour and any direction you choose to look; a clock or calendar can be located. In fear of being late, man cannot function without a timepiece to govern his schedule. When we look and see the movements in nature, we see just how defectively we are chained to time. Nature moves without the need for timepieces. It is never late, it never worries about being on time, it simply happens when it happens. Nature’s time just is. I doubt there is a way now that man can live and function within a time freeing way, so man is the only specie that is trying to live while enduring the fact that time is running out. – dbA

    Wow, your journal entry is so powerful the image haunting. It makes me wonder about what inspired this entry. And you are right, we are the only species living chained to time, limitation, lack and fear

    Thanks for the reaction to my words, this post and the others. The inspiration was from a short time that I had to be involved with a hectic schedule while following the timekeeping lives of others. It was crazy with now room to see and feel what was being looked at. This way, the fast and the furious, is not mine. I move and live in a much calmer way. Slow and Deliberate is more my way!

    I have just spent a bit of time looking through your presence on the web and have to say I am intrigued. We share some thoughts and actions. I liked your FaceBook page. Do you have more? I want to know more as I fit the criteria of your mantra with the way I live my life. Go to and you can find the quickest way to all my social media. I look forward to visiting with you. – Dan

    Thanks for the like on Facebook, I have the link to my twitter on facebook as well. Interesting, I live in a country that have no concept of time even in the modern age, life is always so slow and relaxed. I visited Europe and I could not breath, my friend had my whole vacation planned out and I was shocked to learn that I hate big cities, planned out vacations and always being on the move. Will heard over to your site and check out your social media
