Time Out

Time must have a stop - Aldous Huxley

In this whirling cyclone of current events and everyday life lived in turmoil, most of us find ourselves as some of the lucky ones. Sheltered from the savage face of war, disease and famine, we live our lives as if we are God's chosen. But each of us has the same destination, just different paths. Are we, as individuals, personally responsible for the suffering that goes on in the world? And if we are, what can we do about it? And if we are not, what then is our responsibility? Noble questions. No answers. We can live our lives in ignorance and fear, or we can expand our awareness, and interact in a positive way with the world and the people within it. Our personal time will have a stop. We will use what we have left as we may, for good, for bad, or just indifferently.
It is really the only thing we have. And then it stops.

By Professor Batty
