The Time of Our Life

The Time of Our Life

Do you remember when you had the time of your life? Thank god for memories. How often do you recall the great moments in your life? Sometimes I want to go and experience it again or make a few changes. 

But time keeps happening, and life moves on. Does it make you wish that time travel was possible? Have you been frustrated that time is always slipping away? Here is how we should think about our time.

Time is how we experience living, but time is not experienced. Events are experienced. 

Time is used to record the events that are happening to us. Our lifetime on earth is physical and moves forward in a linear way.

Our Train Ride

Let me take you on an imaginary train ride. When you look at the train tracks where you came from, you can see your past and memories.

When you look at the train tracks in front of the train, you only see the tracks but nothing else because you haven't been there yet. 

However, your place on the train is your life that is happening now. We experience living in linear motion. 

The motion of our train ride moves our life away from the past (our history) and forward to our future. 

We live in our moment of now, where we remember the past and plan for our future. 

How fast and how long our train ride lasts is the measure of how long we have lived. We can't leave the train (our vehicle) and travel on the tracks that represent time.

We are born, we live, and we die. Our life takes place on the train during its linear motion.

We use a clock to keep track of our day and a calendar to keep track of our memories. A clock is a timekeeping tool that we use during our life of motion. 

The train tracks of our life (time) could be twisted like a corkscrew, but the measurement of its time (motion) is linear, like a straight line. 

Likewise, the arrow of time is linear, but the motion of our life is like a corkscrew. It sucks that we are stuck on a train going nowhere or somewhere unknown. 

But the train ride is like time, and it moves with us and where we go. Our life and our time are for us to use during our train ride of life. Make the most of it and enjoy the ride.

Thanks for visiting me on my train ride. My thoughts and memories are stored on my website here at
