THE PARADOX OF TIME
Sharing the following beautiful message from my Ex NSC group:
The paradox of time in history is that
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We have learned how to make a living, but not a life,
We have added years to life but not life to years.
We have we been all the way to the moon and back,
But have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
We have conquered outer space but not inner space,
We have done larger things but not better things.
We have learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information
To produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are times of fast foods and slow digestion;
Big men and smaller character;
Steep profits and shallow relationships.
These are days of two incomes but more divorce,
Fancier houses but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw away morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies and pills that do everything from cheer to quiet, to kill.
It is a time when there is much on the show window and nothing in the stock room.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you and a time when you can chose either to share this insight, or just hit delete.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe because this little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to you because this is the only treasure that you can give with your heart and does not cost a cent.
Give time to love, give time to speak, give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind and heart.
We have to be men and women of hope. Let us focus on the positive side of life.
