How time intercepts with the moment of now

Albert Einstein claimed that time was only relative, relatively speaking. It is possible to either speed up, or to slow down time. Can time be stopped altogether though?

Read on to read about this writer's ideas about time.

Different types of time

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

So states the Christian bible in the old Testament book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 3, verses 1 to 8.

The writer here is talking about Universal time. He states that there is a time for everything to take its place.

Jesus replied, "My hour has not yet come."

This last quote comes from Saint John's gospel, chapter 2, and verse 4.

Here to this writer's mind, Jesus is talking about individual time. The timing of his own journey through Universal time.

Personal time walks alongside of Universal time, and there are times when it is right for them both to meet together in a moment of now. Jesus was waiting for this exact moment of now to take place.

Questions about time, and what it is really all about

Can the relentless marching forwards of time ever be slowed down, hurried up, or ever even stopped in any way at all?

How does individual time work in conjunction with Universal time?

Why does time sometimes make us feel anxious by the way that it passes, especially when we are waiting for something to happen, or for a certain moment of time to occur, or when something has happened, and we are waiting for the effects of it to lessen or deaden, with more passing of time?

Jesus Christ himself seemed to be in agony and anxiously sorrowful about his coming crucifixion. He asked God many times if this cup could be taken away from him, so that he did not have to drink it.

This account of Jesus's coming to terms with his coming death is covered in Saint Matthew's gospel, chapter 26, verses 36 to 46 in a section that some translations label simply as, "The Agony in the Garden."

This was how Jesus himself described his situation according to that report. He said this to his disciples:

"My soul is sorrowful even to death."

The emptiness of nothingness is filled from the infiniteness of time. The two are at opposite ends of love so to speak, and oneness is love being infinitely timed within creation, which uses this energy to live from over time.

Final word about time

"Lost time is never found again."

This is a quote from Benjamin Franklin, (1706 to 1790), one of the founding fathers of the United States, and an author, inventor, politician, and scientist as well.

Is it true though, can time really be ever lost?

All time sits in an emptiness of love waiting to be resurrected as a carrier for creation.

When time is connected to creation, it has a chance to love, but the paradox of this is that to do so the parts of creation must not become attached to time in order to be able to do so fully. They must stay in the now of time or love, whilst at the same time living within the time of time also, or life.
