The Masters of an Irreversible Time

Written by: Muoka Chibuzor

“Every second is of infinite value” - Goethe

Without being a Jewish priest or related to one, the gigantic strides of time and its indestructibility is a fact we must all come to terms with. Time is a gift and it is the currency of life; we all are Navigators on an adventurous voyage; while standing as masters of our respective time, we became responsible for spending it, and making it count. Yesterday marked the Exodus of a year, and the Genesis of today gave life to a New Year. The days, months, and years are all the inventions of man, in his quest to calibrate life; to keep track of his past, present, and future activities. However, if a man fails to be time conscious, the Sun and Moon care not if we were still in the primitive, medieval, or modern era. Indeed man was left to design his destiny.

However, if we want to make the best out of what we have, we must learn to cherish the irreversibility of time. TIME is everything. Pathetically, it is what we want most, but often we use it worst. A Chinese adage emphasized, “An inch of time is an inch of gold, but you can’t buy that inch of time with an inch of gold.” Time is the greatest luxury, it is priceless. In Christianity, it is solely the gift of God and an equivalent of life.

Any irreversible phenomenon defies any idea or an action that suggests or induces the possibility of bringing into reality the past into the present. Indeed time is like a river, you touch not the same water twice, because the flow you initially touched has passed and cannot be touched again. Time sits like an incorruptible judge, allowing the activities of mankind and co-living organisms. Any man who comes to terms with the evanescence of time tightens his belt. The zeal to sit up is unstoppable and his thirst to focus is unquenchable. In essence, the fragments of time build the tower of life.

We must begin to maximize and live the present (now) to the fullest because it stands as an intermediate between the past and future. What is happening now is due to our choices in the past, and whatever happens in the future is according to our choices now. In the course of life, we would also come to understand that time heals and kills. This is seen when the life-time of a man is rewarded with profits if he learns to invest his time in profitable ventures; otherwise, the times ill-spent would haunt the times yet to be spent and seek to obliterate it.

In our society today, Fear is the hydra-headed monster that has tormented the sanity of many confident minds. It makes people see impossibilities before even attempting. It is time we have an open mind and begin to think of possibilities in the unfamiliar. This is because the fear of the unknown has kept us in constant romance with the unfavourable familiar. Due to the inability to leave the comfort zone, we keep on underutilizing the time required to achieve our respective life purpose. The idea of - better the devil you know, than the devil you don’t know, has narrowed several human minds.

Life is short and any timeless ventures are dangerous. The cords of assumptions should be eviscerated from our minds with surgical knives of convictions. Begin questioning whatever you do not understand, and be a lover of the truth, embracing it with whole satisfaction, and distaste any form of assumptions. Don’t think that procrastination is an encouragement of God; most times it is the demonic influence of demons, hell-bent on ensuring that you have a lot of regrets on the death bed. Begin now because sometimes “Later” become “Never.” Embrace the experiences of life and use them in time and not against time, some people use their experiences against time by committing suicide. Don’t for one repulse give up! Don’t waste time on anger, regrets, worries and grudges; a lot is to be ignored if life must be enjoyed within our limited time on earth.

A lot of people believe that time can be “WASTED,” however; such ideas solely arise from narrowly minded bigots who believe that their understanding and philosophy should just be used as a yardstick to measure the accomplishments of every man on earth. Whoever is imperfect has no business calling the lifetime of another wasted. Time can only be underutilized based on personal assessment. The often truth becomes inevitable when people discover that they had left many stones unturned. There is nothing as wasted time because it does not exist. The time you think could be wasting would be brought to the court of life, where time proves everything. Time will prove that the time you enjoyed wasting was not wasted. You may delay but time will not. Time will always tell, most especially the truth. That is why if you don’t make choices in time, time would make the choices for you.

Time is not money, in as much as you need time to make money. Some people think that after making the whole money, and then they would reverse the hands of time, which is impossible. The quest for money is great but do not be found wanting in other activities of life, a balance brings about stability. Money can be replaced but time cannot be replaced, this is because time is not an invention of man. If you are poor, time is all you got to get back on track, and no man can take it from you. You need God in your quest for money, According to Deuteronomy 8:18 “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth.” NKJV.

Finally, do not forget to spend time with the right people. They are the only people more precious than time. Thus, you must be mindful the people you allot your time to. Don’t get sidetracked by people, who are not on track, do not allow enemies of godliness to lure you into ungodliness and disrupt the essence of your life-time. For the want of time, I would conclude by stating that, as masters of time, we must embrace the conceptual knowledge about the irreversibility of time, and then use it in a way that benefits the well being of all mankind.
