It seems to me that we live our lives with backwards priorities. In our society place is more important then time. Who owns a place or an exact place that we have to be at. or things that are the shape of place that we own and live our lives chasing after. Our souls do not live that way though. Who and what I am was changed drastically by events such as high school graduation and passing of time. Where I live is not so much as important as how I use the time when I live there. It is the events and the order in which they happen that shape my life more then the color and location of the walls around me.
This winter the most important thing was not the snow or the icy steps to my apartment, all that was window dressing that I was greatly annoyed with. I wasted time and energy on them. The most important soul things of the winter though is that I learned about faith in people, asking for help and new ways of thinking. The Ice on my steps melted but the changes to my soul and how I view the world have changed and remain changed. These changes were significant because they came in an order of time not because they came in a particular place. I had to be truly at the end of my finical rope before I felt gratitude and thanks for those that helped me get though this rough time. I needed to know the desperation of failure before I could experiance the joy of forgiveness.Again where these things happens did not matter.
What would it be like if we all lived in a world were time was more important then stuff and place?
