Time Is Timeless

Time is timeless

Dear Wisdom,

Please help us to understand the words about time in Kahlil Gibran’s masterpiece, THE PROPHET:

“You would measure time the measureless and the immeasurable. You would adjust your conduct and even direct the course of your spirit according to hours and seasons. Of time you would make a stream upon whose bank you would sit and watch it’s flowing. Yet the timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream. And that that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space. Who among you does not feel that his power to love is boundless? And yet who does not feel that very love, though boundless, encompassed within the center of his being, and moving not from love thought to love thought, nor from love deeds to other love deeds? And is not time even as love is, undivided and spaceless? But if in your thought you must measure time into seasons, let each season encircle all the other seasons, and let today embrace the past with remembrance and the future with longing.” p.62

Time is our most precious commodity. Time passes differently in the dentist chair versus lounging in a beach chair. We see our time moving too quickly and too little accomplished. Please help us to comprehend and slow down time. Thank YOU!

Care to comment, Wisdom?


This passage is describing the difference between soul time and human time.

There is no barrier of time with the soul. Human’s life is structured around the concept of time. Time exists in the 3rd dimension, but has no need to exist in the spiritual realm. Time creates boundaries and limits choices based on beliefs.

*When a human starts feeling old, the mind starts signaling to every cell in the body they are into the  “fall season of time” and the next season is death.

In an oak forest of trees, the leaves start changing color and dry out. One of the signs of fall is the leaves curl up and lose their elasticity. As the human body ages, so too does it lose its strength.

*It is not mandatory this circle of life needs to take place at a certain age.

Some extend the flexibility of the body through the mindset based on philosophy of age. Others speed up the age cycle through belief system and or drugs.

Man can manipulate time by their actions. To feel harried or rushed, makes time compress. To become one pointed expands time.

In a society that values multitasking, nothing receives their full attention. Some of the time they don’t remember if they completed a task because life becomes automatic. Did they remember to lock the door or turn off the stove? Time is now wasted going back to check.

One does not need to follow societies time line. Live according to the souls truth about time. Realize the human body is a jacket for the soul. If the person takes care of their vessel to help the soul with its mission, the aging process can be slowed down, especially if the mind creates fertile thoughts to believe that age has no number that limits reality. Man is superstitious, even scientists.

*Use the power to work in extending life instead of limiting the time on earth because it is the illusion of superstition that most people’s life is based upon. 

            Thank you so much, Wisdom, with gratitude.

            You are welcome, little surf.

Surf along the shoreline has different moods. Sometimes it is feisty and playful, while at other times it is stormy and has some temper. All the emotions have value.

The surf is never finished. Let the surf represent the soul with human emotions.

*Feel the sense of endless time within.
