Unless we are not able to transform time into moments, its seconds as our momentum, its hours as our now it will never lead us to have a minute to like, a day to love or ultimately a month or even years to forgive and forget. Without such metamorphosis, we can never be healed. Moments are not a mere counting of the years in our lives, it is rather its opposite. It knows who and what has become of us over the years. It is the meaning we have carved of us which synchronizes with our consciousness about the motions of before and after.
It is no other than the very life we make in ticking of our life span’s clock! Though it doesn’t also defy natural law or any other laws, our moments’ conversion of time is never mathematical or scientific. It follows only the law that speaks deep within – the laws of consciousness and conscience. These laws may not be scientific in their nature, but they are essentially existential that they could have perfected the essence of time as healer. And through this perspective alone, we can see our moments, our possession of time, as a fertile ground wherein authentic healing will take place and will grow.
Moments as a personal version of time have to have been synchronized passive passing over of our many ‘NOW’s which eventually constituted the years in our lives. It just served as a passive material like a ground; we need to see the seed that will actualize the potentials of our healing. And this actively germinating seed of our moments is discernment.
As a dynamic faculty of man to self-heal over time, it is the capacity to weigh situations and events that has a chain-like effect in the series of now-moments we had and will be having in life. It is the active inferential eye of the human heart that reads signs in the manifold events that unfold in human existence. It ponders and reflects on their significance. It analyzes and deciphers the most cryptic and mysterious distresses that inflict lengthy betterment on us. It compares actions and decisions that we have made, and consequently, it shows us the possibilities of success or failure.
