Understanding time, by Aulida Valery

Dear readers:
We are closer 7 Milliards humans on planet Earth, how many of you understanding the Power one minute? How many time you don’t know what do to with your time?
I found this text about time. Read it! It’s will be a good help.

Thanks,

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day.
Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course?

  • Each of us has such a bank. It’s name is TIME.
  • Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.
  • Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose.
  • It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day.
    If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against « tomorrow. »
    You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success!
    The clock is running!! Make the most of today.

  • To realise the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.
  • To realise the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
  • To realise the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
  • To realise the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
  • To realise the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who just missed a train.
  • To realise the value of ONE SECOND, ask someone who just avoided an accident..
  • To realise the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal at the Olympics..
  • Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. And remember time waits for no one.

    Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why its called the present.

    Receptivity, by Aulida Valéry, Kolo Positivo

    Montreal, I was very curious to learn and share with you. This is what I found by making search on the Web:
    Receptivity: Part of Speech:noun
    Definition: openness
    Synonyms: acceptance, broad-mindedness, impartiality, interest, observance, open-mindedness, receptiveness, responsiveness, tolerance, understanding.
    —-
    From the book [you can get it free online: THE YI JING, OR “BOOK OF CHANGES
    A VERY BRIEF OVERVIEW
    There is no doubt that the Yi jing  »Classic of Changes, »sometimes known as the Zhou yi [“Changes of the Zhou Dynasty,” or “Revolving Changes”], or just called the Yi) is the product of a long tradition of divination lore; there is doubt about most everything else.
    Receptivity: Primal; penetrating; beneficial; the steadfastness of the mare. The junzi undertakes action; he is first lost and later gains his end. He takes benefit as foremost. West and south he gains his friend; east and north he loses his friend. To be at ease with steadfastness is auspicious.
    The Judgment says: Ultimate is the primal quality of Receptivity. The things of the world find their sources therein, and it receives Heaven compliantly. Receptivity is deep and bears all things. Its grace is embracing without limits. It holds vastness and its brilliance is great. All types of things penetrate through.
    – “The mare” is of the category of earth; it travels the earth without limits. It is flexible in its compliance, and in this way benefits through steadfastness.
    – “The junzi undertakes action; he is first lost”: straying from the Dao; later he is compliant and gains the eternal.
    – “West and south he gains his friend”: he travels with his type. “East and north he loses his friend”: yet in the end he will have blessings.
    – The auspiciousness of “at ease with steadfastness”: responding to the earth without limits.
    The Greater Image says: The disposition of earth is Receptivity. The junzi thereby deepens his virtue and bears things.
    Initial Six: Treading frost; the solid ice will come.
    Lesser Image: “Treading frost.” The yin is first congealing. Following forward on this Dao, reaching the solid ice.
    Six in the Second Position: Straight; square; great; without practice, nothing without benefit.
    Composed of the trigrams

    Lesser Image: The motion of Six in the Second Position is straight by means of the square. “Without practice, nothing without benefit”: the Tao of the earth is brilliant.
    Six in the Third Position: Withholding the emblem; able to be steadfast. Perhaps following after the king’s affairs. Without completion yet with an end.
    Lesser Image: “Withholding the emblem; able to be steadfast.” Emerging with timeliness. “Perhaps following after the king’s affairs.” Wisdom bright and great.
    Six in the Fourth Position: Tie the sack. No blame; no praise.
    Lesser Image: “Tie the sack. No blame.” Careful not to do harm.
    Six in the Fifth Position: Yellow skirts. Primally auspicious.
    Lesser Image: “Yellow skirts. Primally auspicious.” The pattern is within.
    Topmost Six: Dragons war on the plains; their blood is black and yellow.
    Lesser Image: “Dragons war on the plains.” Their Dao is exhausted.
    Action by Six: Beneficial to be ever steadfast.
    Lesser Image: Action by Six: “Beneficial to be ever steadfast.” End by means of greatness.
