TIME AS EXPERIENCED AND AS REMEMBERED


REMEMBERED

 

Time for all purposes is measured two ways; the way we experience it and the way we remember it.

If you find yourself complaining that life is going too fast as you age I’m guessing that you need to get our head out of Your Past and open Your Present.

Our minds when in use, think in Real Time just as they did during our first year as guests on Planet Earth as we crawled about looking for a way to rise to our feet and better understand our environment.

Fear drives us to reminisce in search of better times. We hope as we do so that somehow this will build us back up and supply us with a new vigor, increased courage, as aids to facing the problems which threaten our current feelings of safety.

We must stay in the present as much as possible.

This, not That.

This is where Life is.

This is the secret to staying young.

Lets live it.

Lets Accept The Love and Pass it on.

 

 

THE XEROIC RESPONSE TO FEAR

THE XEROIC RESPONSE TO FEAR
(A conversation between Xero Aticus
and the Psychedelic Toad.)
Lee Broom

 

PSYCHO: So tell me XERO, what is it that you fear the most?

XERO: Nada, zilch, double zilch.

PSYCHO: What rhymes with zilch?

XERO: You’re changing the subject.

PSYCHO: It’s my subject. It was I who asked you what you fear; it                                 was I who asked you what rhymes with zilch. The answer                           is filch, which I believe is a word for theft, which is what                               you are doing when you beat around the bush.; you’re                                 stealing your own identity…
So tell me; what are the four things you fear the most?

XERO: Why four?

PSYCHO:(Silence.)

XERO: Okay, okay.

PSYCHO: (Silence)

XERO: Four things?

PSYCHO: (Silence.)

XERO: Okay I’ve got it.

PSYCHO: Ribbet

XERO: Toads don’t say “ribbet”; that’s the language of frogs.

PSYCHO: So…

XERO:  The four things are…

PSYCHO: (Silence)

XERO: Baptists, Muslims, Republicans and Democrats.

PSYCHO: Libertarians?

XERO: Them too.

PSYCHO:  Librarians?

XERO: Not afraid of Librarians.

PSYCHO: Why is that, XERO?

XERO: It’s okay with them if I think.

PSYCHO: Aren’t you a Lutheran?

XERO: I am.

PSYCHO: Why’s that?

XERO: Martin Luther was a Librarian in his spare time.

PSYCHO: Really?

XERO: Really.

PSYCHO: Hey there XERO ATICUS. You have that lost look on your face again. ‘sup?

XERO: Dude…YOU MIGHT TRY ADDRESSING ME AS MR. ATICUS

PSYCHO: (The Look.)

XERO:  You’re giving me that PSYCHEDELIC TOAD look. Stop it please.

PSYCHO:  Well…..

XERO:  Okay…..I need to make amends with someone and I can’t.

PSYCHO: What’s stoppin’ ya?

XERO: I’m not sure what to do.

PSYCHO: Howsabout starting with an apology?

XERO: Well, that hasn’t worked out so well either.

PSYCHO: What happened; don’t tell me; you forgot to pay your AT&T bill, right?

XERO: Don’t get psychedelic on me, Wart Face.

PSYCHO: You sure do a lot of bellyaching, MR. ATICUS. Go on.

XERO: Alright, already; so I write this email, see?

PSYCHO: An email; okay.

XERO: Yeah, an email; it starts out okay but by the time I get to the fifth line I sound angry
again.

PSYCHO: Okay…

XERO: Okay. That’s it. I need ideas. Got any?

PSYCHO: Stop at the third line.

XERO:  Oh.

THE BLUE MARBLE SPEAKS

Earth is a rock; Earth has no opinions; it cannot think, it cannot speak;  however…

Earth has a belief system.

If Earth could speak, it would say…

“I am hurtling through space in a perfectly straight line. I am not sure of my destination but I will arrive at the earliest possible time. Nothing can deter me; nothing can slow me down; I am following a perfectly plotted, straight path.  I am going where no Rock has ever gone before. I am Earth.”   

Of course, in reality this strong-willed rock has been in orbit for a very long time.  And so have you and I and everything else in the universe.

And that’s the Truth.
