Freedom in the Bondage of Time

Waking up to the call of beautiful songbirds in nature. Also an alarm of a clock welcoming the light of the day at dawn. It's a journey through time. We race against time. Life and activities do revolve around time. In the Bondage of time, the blood flows through its vessels with time and life. 

Are we free or in bondage? Bondage against our wills, dreams, commitments, and public and economic relationship. Bondage surroundings the sense of time about daily life undertakings.

Time

In some places, time is slower than in other places due to development, population, technology, emotional and mood disorders as well as activities. Scientifically time is not absolute but relative. The speed of time varies depending on space, direction, distance, light, and gravity.

Therefore, we perceive the movement of time differently because of the psychological state of mind at the moment contributed by differences in sense of touch and light. Why Time Flies: A Mostly Scientific Investigation.

I don't know where to hide when time races against me, but I do the opposite or as equal as time moves. Probably, I am always a regular runner on time or even against time.

Back then in those days in my village, we would wake up early as possible so could keep up with time and finish all the daily activities during the rainy season. Then after the harvesting season was over, we would eat, enjoy and rest. 

The time passed in a sluggish movement. Peaceful moments would run through my heart calmly as my blood flow was normal and at peace.

Freedom against Time.

Now in highly populated places, the bondage of time is apparent, especially in towns and cities time passes quickly leaving no clue of what is happening at the moment. It is a bunch of mixed actions, plans, activities, feelings of panic, stress, and timetables.

Time creates regular and occasional events, as well as audiences and actors that drive life into purpose and existence. In systems where money controls everything, individuals normally say time is money. Others insist on punctuality and so on. However, in the systems where nature controls everything, individuals say time is living life.

As rocks of mountains, oceans, and the sky act as bystanders waiting for their fate, time makes and runs the show. The show that its narrator can't predict it's the outcome and the end. But rather cheer and chant on every move as the skin sweats blinding the eyes.

The sun shows up to give its hope to the beautiful day and weather, while the stars and the moon steal the show at dusk. Gives a perfect chance for secret admirers of the show to run against time in the dark.

"Nature stimulates time, Time stimulates events, an Event allows moments."

Time categorizes characters on stage. The world is a stage of scenes that sort the characters into regular individuals and occasional individuals depending on their roles in society. 

In the animal world especially in the insect societies, as it's in the human world, daily workers are regular individuals who race against time. Catching up with small moments that piece together a daily routine. Ensuring a smooth running and ending of each day.

Occasional characters are special individuals. Maybe are those who tend to sit on time and control how time passes and should be spent. They show up at a specific event depending on how the time is set. And also act depending on what is offered by time at the moment and not otherwise.

Stranded, chained against time or running, and even walking on time. Time has no guarantee since life is pieced into a small period of moments that make the world go round. Our relationship with time is critically designed and controlled by nature. Being happy at the moment means living life to the fullest cherishing all that's life.

  7. Time is fixed and time is flexible. It is an invention by man and the curse of man. We all need more time.
