The connection between time and freedom – Part 1

In the life we are living at the 21st century, the technological developments and the cultural way of life. Has brought many to live a life, in which the main occupation of an individual is based on a monotonic and repetitive cruel daily routine. For most of us, the routing goes as followed – we are waking up around the same hour every day, passing a morning routine, going to work, taking a lunch, coming back to our home, handling with some previous obligations, making some home assignment , eating dinner and finishing the day in front of the television for the sake of letting our head rest.

For a small amount of people, this routine is enjoyable and satisfying. But for the majority of the people, after a short period of repetition, a deep feeling of exhaustiveness , boredom and even a small feeling of depression is starting to be felt. It is true to say, that life is a cycle. The days and night are cycling together with the seasons and with our need to sleep, eat and drink. But somehow, those do not affect us mentally as the daily repetition of our working habits.

Without any doubts, routines are healthy and allow us to feel secure. It allow us to plan forward and believe in the stability of a long lasting life. In the reality, our life are a roller coaster, which makes our life interesting and exciting. Without it, we will just live a linear life which is not worth living.

So how come some routines make us happy and some miserable? As it looks to me it is all connected to the individual perception of time. Time, counted in hours, minutes and seconds is a dangerous concept if taken to seriously. It absorbs our mental freedom, chain us to a master that dictate our existence as it fix us in time. To make it simple, by accepting the concept of time, we become bound to a subconscious understanding of how much have past and how much we still have to go.

In the book I will publish next month called “Back to Ourselves”, I’m developing a conversation about how dangerous is to put to much important into details. Without any doubt, the time as we perceive it, fall under this category. The fascinating thing with time, is that after a short period of adaptation it becomes a fundamental instrument of our unconscious. An example for it, is our capacity to decide to wake up in a certain time, and then by magic we wake up in that specific moment.

I will write a series of post on the subject, in which I will develop the idea of the chain of time, show the direct connection between time and money in our society and the dangerous effects it have on our freedom. In this early stage of our conversation, it is important to understand that the tool of time, is an invention made by the end of the day, the a world that is counted in minutes and hours exist only in our head. As such, it create stress only when adopted by an individual.

Time, have a direct connection to how we perceive ourselves, earn our income and plan ahead. It’s in many cases, a reason for stress and depression if seen in the wrong way.

Please share with me your opinion. Open conversation and awareness are the foundation for the creation of a better future.
