the eventuality of events
calls all future tense
for if our time has all but ticked
then we of course have all been licked
a little to the fix and
ten past then
by colleen hannah
a commentary on the idea that all time, and our place in it, has been plotted or fixed, and is static. We must make room for free will.
Perhaps a better word for it, when it comes to the human race, is mistakes. Even nature has made mistakes albeit beautiful, wondrous mistakes. If we do not allow free will to flourish and admit mistakes are part of who we are, there is no point to our choices we make. We must learn. Or we become stagnant, when that happens we will be clones of clones on a dying world.
we cannot learn without change, without making a few mistakes. This has all been said before, but it seems we have not heard, or not made enough mistakes.
When a mistake is made it is like a step – ready to be taken, ready to be learned from. Every step takes us somewhere new, tells us something new.
If we have learned from our mistakes then we have never made any mistakes at all, only steps in the right direction. So let’s all take a few ticks to the side of center and envision an actual future, not a reprint of last year’s travelogue.
