In real practical terms, there is a difference between hours, minutes, seconds and time. Clock and watches are inventions which were made by mankind, to try to measure time, in order to carry on their business transactions, and measure how much to pay you, for those hours are those days which you work for him in his factory or his fields, or where ever you had to work for him. The clock is also used to tell when you were born, since the clock help them to decide that so, so many days make a month and so many months make a year and therefore, so many days make one year. It also help them to keep historic records of when things happen and when they did not happen. Now let me tell you, that if you go to sleep for say two or three days, and there is no clock or watch, or any other thing to give you a signal of what hour of the day it is, then you will certainly lost track of time. You will not be able to tell which day it is, you will realze that the sun is setting and it is night time, or the sun is rising and it is morning, but that is about all which you could realize.
So, when all the electricity, and the batteries or dead and out of order, we will only be able to measure time by Sunrise and Sunset. Time is not something that we see, although it exist all around us, and is as endless as the fresh air which we breath in. We can always see clocks and watches all around us, but as for time it is quite invisible. Instead of asking what time it is, we should really be asking what hour it is, since time is really quite invisible. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination and to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
