Moving with the Times
turning the hands
of a running clock
that might damage the machine,
render it out of order, useless.
So, no turning the clock behind!
if one forcefully tries to reverse
the biological…human clock behind?
Won’t that likewise
damage the human machine?
Render it out of order, useless?
The human machine,
the thinking component…of it,
the mind, ought to move
with the moment, forward, and
be always in the present moment.
But the mind often
rushes, flies back and gets stuck at
some particular point,
some moment in the past –
some hurt or anger,
some grudge or agony, and so on,
that sucks it into its vortex,
not letting it free
to move the normal, healthy way.
But that’s not the end of the world!
If one understands, realizes
the nature of the human mechanism,
and chooses to move
consciously, forcefully … stubbornly
with the times, i.e., in the present moment,
sans the worrisome
baggage from the past.
Worth trying, ain’t it?
