Human beings invent the concept of time for their own varied purposes. Nonetheless, certain ideas cannot be measured and do not fit into imagined categories. Some people ask why they struggle to fathom and measure the idea of forever. What can you learn from this? What are you learning already?
1) Everything has a universal purpose. Coincidence, weirdos, non-conformists and anyone that seems to differ from you, does not. In this sense, forever seems like the period required to grasp and accept everything is part of you.
2) Social roles have limited usefulness. Humans would not exist and lessons would not be learned if everything unpleasant is eliminated. Jobs one grows to old to perform remind how one actually outgrows social roles and related limited perspectives. Business is an illusion reinforced by the idea that the goal becomes to stay in business at all cost.
3) Life is enriched by self-service. Human beings have opportunities to stretch themselves, to give selflessly, to be as creative and uplifting as they permit. This is not arrogance, but ability to recognize inner talents and to acknowledge intrinsic self-worth. Who you are never falters or lets you down.
4) Dreaming is a soulful wake-up call. Dreaming at night opens the mind to realms of timelessness. In modern society, human beings are not encouraged to dream. Night dreams show perceived turmoil will always exist until you are willing to lay it aside. To relearn the feeling of a centred, loving being reminds you you already live more than one existence.
