Do you spend your "time" contemplating "time"?

 Within every Spiritual concept I have investigated is the notion of the "immortal soul", something that resides at the center of each of us.  I say notion, because it has never been proved by any science of any type, conclusively, that an immortal soul exists.  Thus, it is a matter of faith for anyone to believe in his or her place in "heaven" or other spirit realms, even though many of us share spiritual experiences that would suggest it is so.  My particular belief is my own that I have developed over many years of dialog with my inner self and may have similar aspects that others have shared, and some they have not.  What is important to me is I believe in my notion of the existence of Spirit, and I am mindful that it is my own interpretation and each of you are entitled to believe in your own.  It certainly does not make either of us correct, but does give us our own brand of comfort and confidence as we go forward individually and collectively.  

In my book, What About Me, is a section involved in the contemplation of "time".  Physical time, as we experience it, is a particular thing that is unique to this planet and the creatures that inhabit it.  Our rendering of time has to do with the rotation of Earth about it's star, and perhaps within the entire universe there is not another planet that rotates about it's star in the same "time", and so, if there are physical beings upon those distant planets, time to them would be something completely different than our own.  Earth being only one of perhaps billions of planets, then, makes it an "individual" among the mass, within it's own unique placement of "time".  The movement of time is a physical idea that is relevant only to those who share that exact physicality.  

Barring accident or disease, life forms on this planet have an alloted amount of time to live.  Some insects may live only for hours, while a human being perhaps a hundred years.  Time is a limiting factor, as each of us possesses only so much of it and will certainly run out.  The allotment of time provides a sense of urgency to each of us, more so to each as they get older and know they are within the range of the maximum.  With the ticking of the clock comes desperation.

If, indeed, within each of us is an immortal Spirit and we are able, each in his own way, to recognize it, we must also realize that our "time" in this physical manifestation is but very brief, only one frame in the motion picture of our existence.  The amount of time each of us has is not important, but rather, what it is each of us accomplishes during it.  Purpose is relevant, for each life lived has a unique purpose that pertains only to the individual Spirit.  But what is that purpose?  Each must find his own, and it is within each of us to discover.  Only through your own personal investigation will your realization cement itself.

In the realm of Spirit there is no time.  There is no urgency.  There is no limit.  There is only purpose and possibility.  So how are you spending your "time"?
