What do we mean by time? How could our small practices represent time? Why time runs so fast when we are in hurry and so slow when we have nothing to do? This book opens your eyes to so many things related to time. Sometimes, time can take a physical form, biological, spiritual or mechanical. And you can’t but link all the things mentioned in the book with everything happens in your life. You’ll start looking at the meaning of time in a different perspective. You’ll question every single idea you had about time and how it is related to our daily lives. When someone asks you: what do we mean by time or what time means to you, the idea of days and seasons succession or getting old will seem so dumb to your reasoning.
You’ll look at time as if it is a series of repeated events, the same thing that happened to you will happen millions of times again, to you and to everybody else. It is when you realize the hidden meaning behind “Time repeats itself.” The choices we make, you’ll start to look at every possibility it represents by asking: what if? When life gives us couple of choices to choose from, each one represents a different time, a different story, a different possibility, a different people. Each choice we make has its different time.
In the world in which time is a circle, every handshake, every kiss, every birth, every word, will be repeated precisely. So too every moment that two friends stop becoming friends, every time that a family is broken because of money, every vicious remark in an argument between spouses, every opportunity denied because of a superior’s jealousy, every promise not kept. And just as all things will be repeated in the future, all things now happening happened a million times before.
This book will make you realize that every single action you make is absolute, even if you repeat it over and over, the time it holds is dedicated to the action itself, we can’t transfer this time to the same action we did in a different distance.
It is a world of impulse. It is a world of sincerity. It is a world in which every word spoken speaks just to that moment, every glance given has only one meaning, each touch has no past or no future, each kiss is a kiss of immediacy.
You’ll start wondering; how amazing would it be to live without a memory. Where everything we do, speak, touch or feel we do it for the first time. And in every time we make a different interpretation for the action we did we make it for the first time over and over.
This book will open your eyes to the real meaning behind time and allows you to travel through time to discover time.
For it is only habit and memory that dulls the physical passion. Without memory, each night is the first night, each morning is the first morning, each kiss and touch are the first. A world without memory is a world of the present.
