by Michael Colantoni
Time presents itself to human effort as an enemy or a friend, as a resistance, a medium or an instrument.
But always it is really the instrument of the soul.
Time is a field of circumstances and forces meeting and working out a resultant progression whose course it measures.
To the ego it is a tyrant or a resistance, to the Divine an instrument.
Sri Aurobindo – The Synthesis of Yoga p61.
