……… also comes that for which the time has come.”
Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim said that. The man also changed his name to Paracelsus too, just as well.
The man is very worthy of comment but for me, this morning, the stupid delicious nonsense of the saying has clogged up the ambiance of the studio. A saying that defines the term tautology perhaps. Redundant in being so obvious. Goes without saying.
And yet in saying it, one decides. One has decided. So the purpose of the saying has nothing to do with the meaning, only the attitude. Only the decision to act. It need not be said if the decision has taken hold, but its lack of usefulness in that case is again not its value.
Its value is its humour.
It follows the balancing format that is shown in Rochefoucauld’s “Maxims” …. “It is the passions that make men appear stupid, but of the passions, it is love that makes them appear most stupid.”
The point is none of this. The point for me is the moment. The decision and recognition of return. Return to the moment. Discard the external interference in order to be at the point of balance. The point of potential. Of timelessness where it is not the time that has come but rather it is where time has departed from.
