“The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self.”
The sentient time of our being & doing on this celestial globe is marked, measured, & limited. From the heavens, the equinoxes & solstices are guideposts. One is left behind & the other is coming up. The fall equinox is a time of shared global balance. Here in the northern hemisphere, the daily darkening depths of the winter solstice are coming, coming, coming.
Man has made sense of these sign posts, blended them with daily rotations, monthly & annual orbits to create a 365.25 calendar. Time is manipulated twice a year – by government edict – so has to alternate between spending time (standard time) & saving time. This Sunday is one of those creative deceitful government manipulations. This weekend, time is no longer saved from the universe. Instead, we will spend in time with the universe.
So the world turns, the earth, moon, & solar system orbit around itself and our greater universe. And we sentient beings exist.
