The Impermanence of Time

September 5th, 2013

Thoughts come and go.  Like the vines a monkey uses to swing through the trees, I hold on to one vine then let go.  Hold on to the next vine, then let go.  On and on, until I decide to let go of the vines altogether and scramble on down the nearest trunk.  I think this is where I sit and ponder my navel, or something like that….

All of the vines, all of the trees, like my entire experience, have no intrinsic meaning.  Vines are wonderful, divine even, in that they help me to move through the jungle.  But I am the one who perceives all of this and tries to label it.  I suppose something could elicit from me an emotional response, but wouldn’t that be based on past experiences?  Or are emotions fresh, do they come out singly, in response to each situation?  I suspect I am still more often in the space of relying on old information when it comes to how I perceive the world… no, when it comes to how I pre-ceive the world, i.e. what I expect.

I don’t really know, but it seems the way to live is in the moment, acting as if each presentation to me is new and completely original.  My perception can be new and original.  I can erase each idea … as it comes in?  No, too soon.  After a day?  Who knows?

Well, anyways, what I bring to the table, what thoughts I have, do I judge or not, what kind of spin do I put on the thought, all of these things are mine and therefore mine to direct.  What color am I putting over the things that I let in?  How do I choose what to let in?  Am I choosing or just letting myself be pelted by whatever is closest?

I just don’t know, really.  I just don’t know.

Oh, and I didn’t talk about time, did I… because even though it is impermanent it appears to be constant, at least to our world.  Constant – there were several definitions of this online, I chose to like this one:

Steadfast in purpose, loyalty, or affection; faithful.

It seems to have a more emotional implication, and I like thinking of the Universe as Constant in this way… especially as affectionate and faithful.

Good night!

(the definition is from thefreedictionary.com)
