Time is just something that we assign. You know, past, present, it’s just all arbitrary. Most Native Americans, they don’t think of time as linear; in time, out of time, I never have enough time, circular time, the Stevens wheel. All moments are happening all the time.

    Too bad we lost the ancient Greek distinction between chronos and kairos. It’s a far richer way to distinguish among forms of time. My life certainly improved when I exchanged my chronometer for a kairometer.

      Amen. Operating on kairos (in the fullness of time, when the time is right, God’s time) the conflicts only seem to arise when interacting with others rigidly on chronos time.

      I’m with you on the idea of Kairos time. I first became aware of it from the officiating priest at a funeral for a friend/former co-worker.
