The paradox of time and us, intriguing

Are we what we do with time or are we what time does with us? a famous quote

Time is a complex concept. From a more mystical and scientific perspective, you could view it as a continuous flow of events, and our actions within that flow can shape our identity and experiences. However, it's also true that time, as a dimension, affects us by determining the sequence of events we perceive. So, in a way, it's a dynamic interaction where what we do with time and what time does with us are intertwined.

In simple terms, who we are is influenced by both our actions in life and the way time passes. Our actions shape our experiences, but time, as it moves forward, also determines the order in which these experiences happen. It's a two-way interaction between what we do and how time unfold


Let's consider an example: imagine two people who both want to become skilled musicians.

  1. Person A practices the guitar for hours every day. Over several years, their dedication and hard work make them an accomplished guitarist. They are what they are because of the time and effort they put into practicing.

  2. Person B also wants to be a musician but never takes the time to practice. They procrastinate and let years pass without learning. Time, in this case, has passed without them taking action, so they don't become a musician.

In this example, Person A is what they are because of their actions with time. They used their time wisely to become a musician. Person B, on the other hand, is defined by what time did with them – it passed without them making an effort, so they don't achieve their musical goal. Both the actions and the passage of time shape who they become.


Time is flowing, whether you do anything or not, it is flowing, we witness day and night in a day, nature works as it is, it is on us how we want to choose and what to choose

Make use of time most, be happy and be healthy, stay blessed
