Time Is Actually Cyclical

Part of the problem may lie in the way we think about time itself. 

In Chinese, Hindu and Buddhist traditions, time is cyclical. On Canada’s Baffin Island, the Inuit use the same word—uvatiarru—to mean both ‘in the distant past’ and ‘in the distant future.’

The Hindu word kal means both yesterday and tomorrow.

Time, in such cultures, is always coming as well as going. It is constantly around us, renewing itself, like the air we breathe.

In the Western tradition, time is linear, an arrow flying remorselessly from A to B. It is a finite, and therefore precious, resource.
