A young lady sat in a bus. At the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags.
The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset, asked her why she did not speak up and say something.
The young lady responded with a smile:
“It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I get off at the next stop.”
This response deserves to be written in golden letters:
“It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short”
If each one of us realized that our time here is so short; that to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, discontentment and a fault finding attitude would be a waste of time and energy.
Did someone break your heart? Be calm, the journey is so short.
Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short.
Whatever troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that our journey together is so short.
No one knows the duration of this journey. No one knows when their stop will come. Our journey together is so short.
Let us cherish friends and family. Let us be respectful, kind and forgiving to each other. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness.
If I have ever hurt you, I ask for your forgiveness. If you have ever hurt me, you already have my forgiveness.
After all, Our Journey Together is so Short!
Time! What is it?
Physicists define time as the progression of events from the past to the present into the future. Basically, if a system is unchanging, it is timeless. Time can be considered to be the fourth dimension of reality, used to describe events in three-dimensional space.
1a : The measured or measurable period during which an action, process, or condition exists or continues : duration. b : A nonspatial continuum that is measured in terms of events which succeed one another from past through present to future.
“Time” began 14 billion years ago. According to the standard big bang model of cosmology, time began together with the universe in a singularity approximately 14 billion years ago.
What was before Time?
Bousso and co have crunched the numbers. “Time is unlikely to end in our lifetime, but there is a 50% chance that time will end within the next 3.7 billion years,” they say. That’s not so long! It means that the end of the time is likely to happen within the lifetime of the Earth and the Sun.
Does Time Have A Beginning? Yes. An end? Yes.
When we look at the Universe today, we know with an extraordinary amount of scientific certainty that it wasn’t simply created as-is, but evolved to its present configuration over billions of years of cosmic history. We can use what we see today, both nearby and at great distances, to extrapolate what the Universe was like a long time ago, and to understand how it came to be the way it is now.
When we think about our cosmic origins, then, it’s only human to ask the most fundamental of all possible questions: where did this all come from? It’s been more than half a century since the first robust and unique predictions of the Big Bang were confirmed, leading to our modern picture of a Universe that began from a hot, dense state some 13.8 billion years ago. But in our quest for the beginning, we know already that time couldn’t have started with the Big Bang. In fact, it might not have had a beginning at all.
God, as a spiritual Being, transcends all physical limitations. As such, He is not limited by the linear timeline but is rather a timeless Being without beginning or end.
We are governed by time. We wish we had more of it, or we wish it would move faster. But what is time?
This has been a question scientists, philosophers, theologians, and everyday people have wrestled with for millennia. There is no simple answer, but perhaps the easiest is that time is the progression of events from the past, to the present, to the future.
In science, time is usually only used as a measurement. With ultra-precise atomic clocks, time can be measured to a degree of accuracy with only one second of error in about 30 million years. However, physics takes time further. Time is considered one element of four-dimensional space-time.
Most physicists agree that time had a beginning, although whether there will be an end of time is up for debate. As far as we have experienced, time only moves in one direction, forward toward the future, which is known as the arrow of time.
This refers to the asymmetry of time, in which time moves from a fixed, unchangeable past to an unknown, unfixed future… or at least, as far as we know, judging from experience and from the second law of thermodynamics’ principle of increasing entropy.
I personally consider my experiences! My story has already been written. Accident? No accident! Purpose…
