What if you had eternal life? You would not get old and frail.
After 50 years added on to the Biblical 70 you would be 120 years old.
All your relations, lovers and friends would have died leaving you ALONE!
At 130 years old you have grown bored and weary
You lacked all ambition and the projects you have started seemed pointless now that you have ENDLESS TIME!
You longed for the GRAVE!
What a surprise, IMMORTALITY IS A CURSE!
People think to have endless time would be great.
UNTIL you actually live it!!!
WE NEED DEATH to give shape and meaning to life.
Without the thing we know will happen some time, namely death, life would be pointless.
At 70 we say there are so many places to see, ao much to do and experience, if only we had more TIME!
But the point is: WE DON’T MAKE FULL USE OF THE TIME WE HAVE.
Making full use of time would be meaningless if we had endless time.
Existence would become a pointless burden.
We are responsible for how we use the time allotted to us.
We should stop thinking, “I wish I had mire time” and think instead “if only I had made better use of my time.”
SO DO THAT: Make the best use of your time under the circumstances you live with.
And remember: WE DON’T HAVE ENDLESS TIME.
No one finds life worth living; you must make it worth living.
VERY TRUE DAVE. I FIND THAT BECAUSE OF ACHES AND PAINS, I DON’T WANT TO DO SO MUCH ANYMORE. I GET SHORT OF BREATH WALKING FROM THE CAR TO THE CONDO, AND IT’S NOT THAT FAR.
TIME IS BEING WASTED BUT IT’S OK, I REALLY DON’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING. I’M ENJOYING DOING NOTHING. I DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT THINGS TO DO. I REMEMBER THINGS I’VE DONE. THE TRAVELING, THE CRUISES, THE TIME WORKING, ALL GOOD. I’M A HAPPY MAN WASTING THE TIME I HAVE LEFT. I DON’T FEEL GUILTY ABOUT IT AT ALL. I’VE EARNED IT.
Interesting blog, very well said!
