Contemplation on the Odu Ogunda Meji


Time is just an illusion
created by the mind
to track the decay
of the house that
holds its secrets
and the activities
of the world
around it
In reality 
there is only
now
all else
can only be
experienced
in relation to
this
moment
That’s why
all things 
past
present
future
exist
simultaneously
If a ray of light
travels 1 million light years
to allow us to view
it’s present state
By the time it reaches us
it is no longer the present
but the distant past
while its origin
is already experiencing
the future
all while we 
observe it in the
present
This 
remains true
even when 1 million light years
is 1 millionth of one second
time
at all scales is
relative

Hi, Iboru,Iboye, Ibosheshe

Nice interpretation of Ogunda meji. I enjoyed reading this passage.

Take care,
