The jaws of Time do not grind everything because there is the Love, and Love cannot be destroyed.

— Sean Dragon

You Cannot Cheat Time

Source

Many of us are trying to cheat Time. Some of us are trying to keep their youthful appearance artificially. Others think that they can buy Time with their money. In many ways and with even more agony we are trying to avoid its constraints. But in vain. Nor is it deceived, neither can be bought off and never forgets anybody.

But You Can Make Time Your Best Friend

But there is something that is not bound or destroyed by Time. Something that never ages, nor is it ruined by its passing. And that's love.

Think for moments you gave or got pure love. No matter how old these moments are, as you just think of them, they come alive, and they are as strong as they were then. Through these moments we live again and again with our beloved ones who are gone, and this is something that Time can not take away from us.

Think why Time has not managed to erase from the soul, the heart, and the mind of people the story of Jesus or the story of Siddharta or any other like them. Merely because they were pure love; pure love that always remains unchanged for centuries.

Whatever you think about love, you will see how Time can not touch it. This is, in fact, the elixir of eternal life which all the mystics have spoken of. This truth has been given to us by the creation of this world: Become pure love and come out of the bounds of Time.

When we forgot it, we became prisoners of Time. But it is up to us to be free again. If we fill our lives with love, if we become Love, then we will live forever free and happy.

I am becoming Love, and Time is becoming my friend...

— Sean Dragon

      Maybe the most powerful letters in the Cosmos, my Brother Bill! After all, are enclosed in the Holy Trinity of the letters: G...O...D!

      Thank you for the honor to read my work!

      Peace to you, your family and the lovely company of your animals!

      Oh! My dear, Marlene, your words are such great honour to me! Thank you so much. I am certainly not a wise man, but I believe that Love can give words of wisdom to anyone of us if we just let it fill our heart!

      I admire your work too, so your words are significant to me, and I believe that your comment is a wise one!

      Thank you, and God bless your time!

      As I get older I discover that time really is my best friend. Living life in love and not trying to hurry things along have given me the most peace I have had in my life. I truly admire you and your words of wisdom in this article.

      I want to thank my dear Brother Manatita for his wise advice and my friend Kimberly for using the right word "constraints" and giving us the idea to change the "hard" word "tyranny" from the title.

      A Loving community always helps every member to improve!

      Thank you all!

      My, dear Li-Jen, that noble Heart I distinguished at your work, and I like.

      I am nothing more than a learner, a seeker of Light and my inner truth. Therefore I don't deserve more respect than anyone here in Hubpages. But I really thank you because I know that you mean it.

      I agree with you; even the smallest achievements do count!

      So, your achievements in just three weeks have earned my respect.

      I am glad to have you here.

      I believe that Love can free us from any fear, and that's what I try to remind to my self and other people. I am glad if I have succeeded this goal.

      Love bless you!

      Dear Kimberly, your kind words are a great honor to me. Thank you, from my heart. I think that we are at the same "wavelength," so I am happy we found each other. I have paraphrased the Buddhist saying to this:

      "When two Souls are ready to help each other, they will meet!"

      God Bless you!

      Thank you, my dear Audrey. Your kind words are precious to me. Indeed, loving people live in a loving world. I believe that Love can reach beyond any limit, even death. That's why our loved ones always live in our hearts, and some blessed day, Love will bring us together forever.

      God Bless you and Bless the Souls you love.

      You walk the path of love.This is obvious in your beautiful quotes. The love that is so often neglected is the love for ourselves. Loving people live in a loving world.

      Thank you for a most inspiring piece.

      Namaste

      All self-defeating behaviors are efforts at living in a moment other than the current one.

      I would consider as a blessing anything you could send me my brother. I desire to walk as many love paths as I can. I wish to become a clear channel of God's love, and every help is essential. May the Light be with you.
