Vol. 1 Ch. 2 P. 7

Because time acts
in absolute neutrality,
I stopped trying
to bend it.

Instead, I dance
to its rhythm
like a bamboo
swaying with the winds.

I move
with graceful

  1. I can’t dance gracefully in perfect rhythm with time. When I go faster, everything around me is in slow motion. But whenever I take my time, I’m the one lagging behind.

    Great post though. πŸ™‚

  2. if you are really destined to be of who and what you are, it’s so difficult to oppose to it better danced to it gracefully rather than bend and break it…

  3. This complements beautifully your other post on time – that being about our subjective reaction to it, and this being about the objective fact that time is neutral. It’s a fascinating juxtaposition. The bamboo imagery (in the word and the picture) is just lovely.

  4. Time is a tool, for us of course, in organizing ourselves, but more so for God. And yet if time is a tool for God, then it doesn’t act with neutrality, it acts with compassion. It is a limited view that makes it seem neutral, or more tragically, evil. But philosophy aside, this is perfectly written. Dancing I think is what He would like us to do with it, but I am so inept at dancing. When you dance with time, you have a very good partner. Blessings on you.
