Time cannot be kept.

Mitch Teemley


Dali had it right

Clocks cannot be trusted

Not because they keep poor time

But because time cannot be kept

Instead time keeps us

In a cage made of minutes

And the secret is not to escape

But to realize

There is no time

In the mean time

Time does not melt

We do

  3. I find it helps to think ‘outside’ of time when considering our faith. Without time there is no cause and effect. This comforts me when I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the awfulness of the world, because I know that ‘the grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God will stand forever’ (Isaiah 40:8) and ‘His love endures forever’ (Psalm 136) – which is another way of saying that God’s love is so strong that it exists outside of time. And that love is unbreakable.

    Mitch, What Takes No Time, No Practice, No Effort, No Distance, No Travel, No Time to Waste on Foolish Thoughts, You’ve only got two hours left now, What Takes No Time? Now one hour left, What Takes No Time? You don’t have time to go to the Himalayas, you don’t have time to sit in a cave and meditate, you don’t have time to read the scriptures, You’ve only got five minutes now, four minutes now, you’ve only got three and a half minutes now. Then I’ll you; “What Takes No Time, No Practice, No Effort, No Distance, No Travel, No Time to Waste on Foolish Thoughts”, don’t give the verbal answer, be the answer, nothing to remember, nothing to become, nothing to change, nothing to fix, nothing to change, You’ve only got one minute now, What is it that takes no time to solve, to resolve, thirty seconds, don’t use your mind, it never started so it can never stop, it cannot leave because it never came, ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one?

    One of the kids has a Dali Wall clock in his living room. Studying it while rocking a baby to sleep, I thought about the time we waste and how we silly humans prioritize by how much we can do within time restraints. God’s not like that. How often I wish I could go back to that place and enjoy nothing more than rocking that baby… Sigh… Now he’d object to losing some screen time. No worries, heaven awaits us. Brilliantly written, you nailed the lesson, Mitch.
