Tock Tick – A Perspective on Time
Time does not stop on the failure of a watch battery just because the
hands cease to move anymore. Time goes on and so does everything else
until its failure or expiration. Everything in this world is set for
entropy and man is no exception. He is made, like everything else,
with an expiration date, which sooner or later will be reached on the
timeline. Yet, man is constantly racing against the clock trying his
best to beat time. Nobody ever beats time.
An alternative view that one can adopt is to treat the time allotted
to this life as a counter that is sey on a timer — just like that on
a microwave oven, where every second that passes one closer to zero.
The only difference is that man does not know how long he has until
his time is up, but what he does realise is that he is running out of
time and before long, his timer will definitely read zero.
What do we have to account for at the end of it all? Is there anything
that we can take with us at zero?
The mystics tell us that if there is anything at all that goes with us
at the end, it is our Master and our Meditation.
Not knowing when we will take our last breath lets us assume that we
have a tomorrow — another day to do what could have been done today.
Putting meditation off till later is a mistake with too heavy a price to pay.
Withdrawl to the eye centre requires effort, concentration and time.
And if given a tentative slot in man’s latter part of life, it is done
so without any guarantee of knowing how much time latter-life even
holds for him.
Procrastination is the greatest blunder of man, and probably one of
the biggest allies of time. With everyone’s timer heading towards
zero, including that of the physical Master, it is of utmost
importance that we all take full advantage of our time here.
The Masters all realise this and thus make complete use of every
second in their life to fulfil their purpose of coming into the world.
We need to realise the same and use very opportune moment possible
towards achieving our goal of withdrawing our consciousness to the eye
centre and eventually of God-realisation.
