TIME - Part 2: The 4 SEASONS

Yesterday we spoke a little about TIME BASICS [28Sep2010], today we will begin dividing and organzing how each person of the world fits into their own personal Season and how that affects us all. It was stated that Seasons is one of the biggest cycles of TIME; and it is so beautifully complex by our Maker. In order not 2 get lost in the Trees, I have color-coded everything in order 2 keep it simple and quick 4 learning 2 those who are interested in understanding where they came from; why they are here and where they fit in this massive planet we call Earth. Every word, illustration and example is giving credit 2 my God, the one who trusted me with His own creation. I hope this will be enjoyable as we begin the 2nd portion of TIME;

Since the Seasons are one of the Biggest Cycles of TIME. Once we grasp just 4 little cycles, everything will begin 2 take place of understanding in our journey of how things were created in simple down-2-earth application:

1. Winter is Cold, Slow and Rejuvinating like sleep, and where we get North from. The Blue people are the serious and factual persons who do one thing and do it well. Blue does not like 2b hurried. Blue's like 2 'think' alot and like behind the scenes. They are very gifted and creative with their hands.
     Winter is soothing and nostalgic making us desire 2b indoors with a hot bowl of our favorite soup or a hot cup of coacoa with a good book or a good movie. It is restful physically but very busy inward mentally.  Blue shows it's love in actions rather in showing off. Blue is nurturing and caring. It is also very romantic and shy. It's treasures are hidden 4 one to come along and discover the wealth waiting 2b discoverd. Blue is slow but thorough. Blue is cuddly and non-forceful. Blues enjoy listening. This Season is considered 2b Introvert. Blue is complete but lacks cheerfulness which is why it seeks out Spring as it's first choice of mate. Blues are always looking 4 the 'perfect' mate. Blue is a Teacher. It has traveled all the other 3 Seasons and now has learned it's lessons well and can pass wisdom on 2 it's next generation. Believes in educationing the next generation. Blue was Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Consider the Oceans and how it affects u internally. At first glance it is hidden, but underneath the Sea is a world waiting 2b discovered.

2. Spring is Warm, Super-fast and cheerful as Joy, and where we get South from. The Yellow  people are the happy-go-lucky, bright-eyed and talkative enthusiastics.  Yellows are the smile we see in someone we do not knonw. They are the story-tellers that make us laugh and enjoy life. Yellow is newness and life! It is the gasp or the aw! of something we just noticed. Yellow wants attention and demands 2b noticed. It is the birds singing their songs loudly 2b heard. Yellows are inspiring and courageous like the Lion in the Wizard of Oz. Imagine the world w/o The Sun! It is unheard of. It is Warm and enjoyable and seeks out the Blue as it's first choice in mate bcoz it needs stability and steadfastness.

3. Summer is Hot, Fast and gets things done, and where we get West from. The Red people are the ones that work and are busy all the time and born to lead and organize others. If u need someone 2 take u by the hand, the Red is more than happy 2 apply 4 the position. Red is hot and cooks our food and lights our Homes with all manner of luxuries from our TV, Internet and DVD player, it is electricity that when used right is something we cannot live w/o. Red is cautious and the stop sign. Red is the heat we need 2 keep us warm from the freezing cold temperatures. Red is impatient but w/a good reason 2 get things done by a deadline. Red leads and guides us. It seeks out appreciation and desires the mate in Autumn as it needs balance and a listening ear. Red is when all agriculture develops so we may have our fruits, nuts and all manner of foods we need 2 live by. Red is brillant and bright. It is not afraid 2 speak it's mind and enjoy caring 4 others. Red was the Tin-Man in the Wizard of Oz who was seeking a heart never knowing how wonderfully caring he really was.

4. And Autumn is Cool, Super-slow and patient, and where we get our East from. The Green people are the Watchers, brilliant and easy-going and super shy. Greens are the good veggies our bodies need 2 fight off diseases. Green is ever patient and the best parent, the greatest listener u will ever find. They are enduring and slow and easy-going in getting things done well. They are the brillant Scientists with which we would never have received our light bulb or auto-mobiles or most of our inventions from. Green is soothing and cool. It is not harsh or demanding but enjoys watching and observation. Green was the Scarecrow who was seeking a Brain never understanding he was a Genius! Greens seek our Reds as their first choice in mate for they desire 2b cared for and need of belonging.

     Seasons move clock-wise much like the hours on a clock, they do not go backwards, only forward. The reason this is good is bcoz what has been, will be again. Time repeats itself over and over again, only the circumstances by the choices and decisions people make change things.

     Imagine with me a clock. We will color-code the four [4] portions of a clock 2 illustrate the 'movement' of the Seasons. To the right side of this blog is a clock, if u need visualization, consider looking at it:

     Let's illustrate by saying:
WINTER is the 1st block on the top left side as (09:00 - 12:00),
SPRING; The 2nd block on the top right as (12:00 - 03:00),
SUMMER as the 3rd block on the bottom right as (03:00 - 06:00),
AUTUMN as the 4th block on the bottom left side as (6:00 - 9:00).

     We now have our 4 Seasons divided into 4 blocks on our clock, from this all living things, great and small have their existence. Where a person is born, will determine how the movement of TIME affects them. The above illustration is for Winter born people, since the Blue falls in Winter.

Next let's look at the break-down of the Seasons, each Season has 3 months associated with it as we all know:

1. 09:00-12:00 - Winter has January . February and March

2. 12:00-03:00 - Spring has April . May and June

3. 03:00-06:00 - Summer has July . August and September

4. 06:00-09:00 - Autumn has October . November and December

Notice how they seem 2b walking up stairs! Beautifully organized and balanced in every way by our Maker.
Each Season is divided by it's months.  Here is an amazing discovery of note: If we wanted 2 examine 'only' the Blues, this is what it would look like, let's look again by grouping them after their own kind:

1. Winter Months, People: January . May and September
2. Spring Months, People: February . June and October
3. Summer Months, People: March . July and November
4. Autumn Months, People: April . August and December

All these are color-coded according 2 their personal Seasons by where they landed in TIME of birth.

Taking our example as Blue people, we see that January, May and September have common characteristics and feel a kindred spirit when they meet. If u have ever felt comfortable in the presence of someone u did not know, that is the reason, or perhaps u associated with someone u did not know but 'felt' uncomfortable in their presence, that is also the reason.

In order 2 further understand Seasons, we have 2 break them down even further 2 find their simularities and balance of TIME. Therefore, the 4 Seasons will now be grouped into only Two groups, we have observed the grouped Months, now observe the grouped Seasons:

A) Winter and Summer and
B) Spring and Autumn.

These are the same or in competition 2 themselves. While their opposites are different. The difference between Winter and Summer is Winter is Mental and Summer is Physical. Winter is a time of rest while Summer is a time 2 get things done. In Winter the fruit tree has no buds and still asleep, while in Summer, the fruits are ripening. So like-wise, The difference between Spring and Autumn is Spring is a time of new beginnings which is also Physical, while Autumn is a time of all endings, also Mental. Since the 4 Seasons are divided into 2 groups, we can see how TIME has a good balance. Winter is Stop, Spring is Go, Summer is GO! and Autumn is STOP! So let's look at our clock once more:

Winter - 09:00-12:00 on the Left top is Passive
Spring - 12:00-03:00 on the Right top is Agressive - Best mates

Summer - 03:00-06:00 on Right bottom is Agressive
Autumn - 06:00-09:00 on Left bottom is Passive - Best mates

Now let's put it all together:

January is Passive       09:00-12:00 - The Blue in Winter
February is Agressive 12:00-03:00 - The Yellow in Winter
March is Agressive     03:00-06:00 - The Red in Winter
Notice: There is no Green Autumn in Winter, more on that later.

April is Agressive 06:00-09:00 - The Green in Spring
May is Passive     09:00-12:00 - The Blue in Spring
June is Agressive 12:00-03:00 - The Yellow in Spring
Notice: There is no Red Summer in Spring

July            is Agressive 03:00-06:00 - The Red in Summer
August       is Agressive 06:00-09:00 - The Green in Summer
September is Passive     09:00-12:00 - The Blue in Summer
Notice: There is no Yellow Spring in Summer

October     is Agressive 12:00-03:00 - The Yellow in Autumn
November is Agressive 03:00-06:00 - The Red in Autumn
December is Passive     06:00-09:00 - The Green in Autumn
Note: There is no Blue Winter in Autumn

If u feel a bit overwhelmed by now, do not worry, just continue, just pick the color u are born under and follow it and soon it will begin 2 unfold. How marvelous God is 2 have strategically organize everything that was created so that there is balance and not chaos in our world. The more I learn, the more Im speechless at how beautiful everything is.

There will be many lessons on TIME, but we are only talking about SEASONS so far. Consider how u feel about each Season. A person born in Winter will have difficultity in Summer, while a person born in Summer will have difficulty in Winter. We begin 2 understand the 'whys' of all our Qs as we learn about TIME and it is also FUN.  In the next lesson, we will move on to the Months and it's cycles.

TIME ... The Basics

=========     Most of us never think about 'Time', we tend 2 consider it in terms of how old someone is, whether young or old. Amazingly a Journey began some years ago, that has me still learning w/o end. So what is TIME then, u might ask?

I had 2 learn step by step like anyone else, only it took me longer since I kept getting things repeatedly messed up. I began 2 Q myself, saying, "Am I normal", or "Why am I not like others?" One day I began 2 just think about my life as I was sipping on a cup of hot coacoa and turning the pages of a favorite book. The thought came 2 me that Life is like a Book! As I continued in this adventure of thought, I considered some events of my past and began 2 match them 2 some years. All of a sudden, the years began 2 unfold a 'Pattern' and an organized set of events. I thought more about this one and that one and soon, it was amazing how my own thoughts were like Chapters which had Pages that led me 2 the strong desire 2 understand if other people felt like I did. Perhaps I thought, they might have the answer I'm seeking. I started with a Q, then another and another, it kept snowballing into so long ago, how this famous person did that and so on.. Finally I found myself asking the Q, So what is TIME then? A wondeful Discovery exploded with such great Understanding in me! And here is what I heard in my spirit-man: An amazing journey awaits u...

TIME as we know it is not big but rather never-ending, much like a calendar, clock, or round ring. For God Himself created everything. If u are like me, I like things as simple as possible so I dont get lost in the Trees! God sees everything, the BIG picture and the smallest details. But us humans, Either see the Big Picture, OR just get lost in Details. When one is an Artist, he thinks of his colors and tools as his brushes and canvas etc. If one is a Designer, they consider something they want 2 make and the tools 4 such a task. So God Himself is this way; He decided 2 create something and He did it thru 'steps', called TIME. Let's begin by saying what time is..

Q:  What is TIME?
A:  Time are 'Portions of a Whole', much like a Calendar is the whole, but it's months are it's portions.

The Portions of TIME

1.  CYCLES      4. MONTHS   7. HOURS       10. Numbers [Math]
2.  SEASONS   5. WEEKS       8. MINUTES   11. Letters [Communication]
3.  YEARS        6. DAYS          9. SECONDS  12. Color [Creativity]

In order 2 understand how all these portions of TIME fit together, we will call them TIME CYCLES. And All of TIME can be summoned into one phrase!..  The Star of David.. Within is hidden everything.

You might think, How does this affect me, or, so what? Usually the greatest miracle is always right b4 our eyes but we do not see it simply bcoz we do not understand. However, if u are like millions of people who have come 2 ask the familar Q, "Who am I", or "Why am I here", or "Why should I even get out of bed today", God has a famous saying, " MY People are destroyed 4 lack of  Knowledge.  Most of us understand Seasons, surely the Farmer does. So 2 keep it as simple as I can so even a child understands, I will break TIME in it's proper 'portions' in respect 2 Creation.  I'm not here 2 debate, just the facts and u alone can come 2 your own conclusion; but it is so simple, like hitting on your head saying, wow, why did I not think of this. In understanding how each portion of TIME fits together, we will explore PEOPLE, SEASONS, FARMERS in Agriculture and other basic examples since most can grasp this nice and quickly.  Finally, I cannot take ANY credit 4 any of this, simply bcoz it was given 2 me step by step...and each step became a miracle! Tho my journey continues...I have found many of my answers thru self-discovery and so can u.

There are also Cycles of Time, these are not in themselves a 'portion' but rather a 'Double-Duty of Time, meaning that they are the pre-requisite of a portion of Time. This has 2 happen in order 4 that 2 happen; much like u have 2 prepare a meal b4 being able 2 eat.  A special note must be made here in order 2 understand that Seasons move in a never-ending circle, much like we consider a wedding ring 2 be or a cord which has parts of a whole. It is without a seam, the beginning is also the ending and starts all over again, so this are the Cycles. Ok, let's move on:

So we think of WINTER as the end of a year, when things comes 2 an almost 'stop', like our night when the moon is out and it is time 4 us 2 sleep. It is the way the body rests in order 2 heal itself. So WINTER also is the last and first Cycle. We cannot have a new Beginning, w/o having had an End and so on..

With this said, WINTER 'ends' and SPRING begins, giving surrender to Summer which in turn submits 2 Autumn once again. Let's further at the beauty of our seasons in terms of people as well. Since we know already that WINTER is slow and thorough, we understand it from the FARMER's point of view as the time 2 PREPARE the soil 4 sowing the seed. We cannot just dig a hole and throw in the seed and hope it will produce, no; we must FIRST PREPARE the soil, by removing the rocks, debree and make it as soft and ready 2 ensure that the newborn seed has a chance against the enemy called 'Weeds.'  Much like we have eaten dinner, but now it's time once more 2 do the dishes in order 2 use them again next meal.   After the Farmer prepares the soil, which is the most difficult part but also the most needed, as most of us who hate 2 sleep can testify lol, now it is time 2 surrender 2 the next Season; 

SPRING is like the SEED being planted, and when all Life comes alive, the birds begin 2 sing their songs and once again we see the snow melted and new buds opening on the trees with their brilliant yellow hue of cheerful sun after a long and cold wintery isolation of being indoors. Have u ever noticed how one day u look and bright beautiful lime green leaves are filling the empty branches of a tree, only 2 discover just how fast things change? So it is with SPRING, it comes as quickly as as must now surrender 2 it's next Season;

SUMMER is the maintenance of what is growing, it is also the most difficult like Winter but in terms of physical development rather than Winter's 'under-ground' activities, that is why Blue people are shy and do not like the lime light, but Spring wants the opposite, alot of attention saying I'M HERE at last! Tho SUMMER is nothing but serious work, work, work, that overtime that has 2b put in or so busy no time 2 rest time. It is hot like the desert and has little or no time 4 fun. It is when things get done! Imagine if u are a driver, the yellow, red and green lights at a stop light. The Yellow would be Spring saying slow down but driving as fast as it can thru the light lol!, The green says, it's clear let's go, but the Red says, STOP! If u dont, u take the risk of an accident occuring since the other driver's on the other lanes have their own color directing them. So it is with SUMMER, So Red people appear 2b very bossy and know it all, but they have the most responsibility in life from having 2 work so hard getting the things done other cycles dont have 2 do.

Last comes AUTUMN and the cooling down with the trees sheding their leaves once more, and the winds of change again as Summer had 2 finally surrender w/o wanting 2 to AUTUMN, that is why Green people are considered the easy-going types who are calm and cool and collected no matter what is going on.

As we consider our examples, and details about the 4 Seasons, we can happily begin 2 recognize the people around us. And also understand that TIME has it's portions with each one doing it's own gifted task.  WINTER [the Cold] cannot tell SUMMER [the Hot], I'm more important than u, nor can SUMMER tell Autumn, hey I'm more important bcoz I get things done. Each Season has it's part 2 do in order 2 get ready 4 the next one, much like a Kingergardener climbs up the ladder of education until they reach time 4 Graduation. It is step by step, and each step of a miracle. So God created everything 2 NEED each other as well as being a whole in itself full of worth with beauty.

Just like each Season must surrender 2 the next, so the seconds turn 2 minutes and minutes turn 2 hours, the hours give way 2 the Day and the Days become our Week and so on...You could say we all have all 4 of the Seasons in our personality, but 'where it falls in our 4-square example of a clock, depends on how it makes us differrent from one another in terms of Seasons.  Consider meeting a person, immediately u begin 2 search how much u have 'in common' with them, only 2 marry that person, and they 'appear' 2 have 'changed.'  They did not change, they simply have their parts like the seasons play their task in life they were created 2 do.  There is much 2 discover in our Journey, I hope u have enjoyed a quick reference of the Basics of TIME.

In Part Two, we will begin 2 examine each cycle of TIME; but keeping our Key focus of the FARMER, A CLOCK and the 4 SEASONS of color will help us understand quickly what has been in front of us all along. We must give credit 2 our Creator who, w/o asking 4 admiration, but 'waiting' 4 us 2 discover all He has provided 4 us, freely 4 the taking.  THREE things will happen as we journey together in TIME:

1. You will discover who God is.
2. You will discover who you are.
3. You will discover who all your loved ones and people in your world also are,  in order 2 appreciate all our differences. Then at long last, forgiveness and tolerance can give birth, and Healing can begin 2 unfold in your life as it has in mine. Until next session, grasp Hope and Faith and do not let go if u are looking 4 answers, I promise u as one who never thought there was a reason 2 get up another day, that there is Encouragement and Hope 4 your life or the one u love that is searching also..In Baby Steps, and each step will be a miracle as u look back one day.
