But what does it mean when we change the clock?
You aren’t really changing time as there are still 24 hours in a day isn’t there? You are however changing your orientation to time. With ‘spring forward’ the number of daylight hours you have abruptly changed (even with snow I might add!). The daylight here in Arizona will gradually get longer too and I like the idea of letting the rhythm of the seasons unfold instead of externally forcing it. Time becomes more about how I am oriented to it (an internal process) instead of an outside force (external process) dictating it. Remember changing the clock started here in the United States 99 years ago and here are “8 Things You May Not Know About Daylight Saving Time” .
Changing the clocks just became part of the programming we grew up with. Programming is just like that - given enough time it’s all people remember but it isn’t the complete history of who as well as what we are. Some programming can be helpful such as what side of the road a country drives on but there’s programming outside of our conscious awareness that isn’t helpful that in fact keeps your perspective of yourself, others, the world, and if you’re a Sci-Fi fan the Universe and Galaxy. When you have a small narrow view you can’t see all that’s there. The broader your view the greater your perspective which can in turn take how you live and yourself to greater heights!
Here’s to your greatness, to your breath taking vistas!
