from Lawrence, SUNDAY PhiloMadrid meeting at 6:30pm: What is the importance of time? + News

Essay by Alicia and news: Los Cocidos De Encarnita

Dear Friends,

This Sunday we are discussing: What is the importance of time?

The more we become dependent on technology and hence sophisticated
civilization, the more time becomes critical. Today, not only clocks run
like clockwork, but society itself runs more or less like clockwork.

Today we know the exact time we sent an email, the exact time a message
appears on social media and the exact time someone reads one of our
smart phone messages. We start work or an appointment at a given time
and we all dread that killer of time, the rush hour.

However, time has one big advantage for us, it is regular and it is
constant. Time doesn't break down, although our watches and clocks might
break down. And although time is always short in our busy life, it is
thanks to time that we can plan anything at all.

----Alicia: WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF TIME?

We have heard on many occasions the expression: "TIME IS GOLD" and it is
a great truth.
The present is the most important because the past will not come back
and the future will happen day by day.

We are very busy with our work and spend little time by ourselves. It is
therefore very important to make a good distribution of our time for
work and the time we dedicate for ourselves and for others.

Meditation is a good resource to stop everyday to analyze how our lives
are and to see what are the mistakes that we are making to correct them
and be more happy with ourselves and with those around us. A good
therapy to relax and enjoy in peace our time with those around us in
good harmony.

"Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. And until you
do not value your time you will not do anything with it." M. Scott Peck

The most important thing in life are our experiences and thanks to them
we have different perceptions and thoughts as the years go by. Whenever
we want to do something that is very important for us we must take time
to achieve our goal.

"Instead of waiting for things to be better, make a list of all the
things you can do until the situation improves and you do them."
Danielle Kennedy

Many people spend their lives hoping that their luck will change, but
the luck is sought by each one struggling to achieve their goals,
despite not always seeing the efforts made in achieving them. At least
you have to try it, since we all have a great heritage of successes and
failures in our lives and we are a faithful reflection of that daily
struggle.

None of us knows how many years we have left of life, but if something
unexpected come up, like a doctor diagnosing us with a terminal illness:
what would we do with those months that we have left of life?.

Alicia
