Man and woman want and like to be on time for any appointment or prefer to be early, but never late for any appointment. Knowledge informs man and woman that they can be either on time or early for any appointment.
Knowledge informs man and woman that they have the capacity to be either on time for any appointment or early for any appointment, but never late for an appointment unless due to unavoidable circumstances.
When man and woman are late for any appointment they are frustrated, disappointed and angry with themselves and for reasons responsible for the inability to keep any appointment on time.
Wisdom regarding being late for any appointment in daily life, however, is free of any emotions that usually accompany the knowledge to be late for any appointment.
What is the wisdom regarding ‘late’, is the question?
Wisdom reveals to man and woman that any appointment is in the moment in life. Wisdom reveals to man and woman that any appointment happens in the moment in life.
Knowledge takes the moment in life for granted. Wisdom reveals that any moment in life is precious and does not take any moment in life for granted. Wisdom reveals that every moment in life is precise and does not take any moment in life for granted.
Wisdom reveals that what is within any moment in life is precise. Wisdom reveals that only a single movement is present within any moment in life. Wisdom reveals that the single movement within any moment in life is precise as well.
Wisdom reveals that besides the single movement that is present in any moment in life cannot be any other movement than the movement present in any particular moment.
Wisdom reveals that the timing of the movement in any particular moment is precise as well. Wisdom reveals that the movement in any particular moment is, therefore, never late.
Wisdom reveals that unavoidable circumstances that make man and woman late for an appointment are the precise movement in the moment in life. Wisdom reveals that the intelligence in life manifests the moment and also the precise movement, including the precise timing of the movement, in any moment in life.
Therefore, man and woman with wisdom of ‘late’ are always calm, patient and trust every moment in life. They are grateful for the precise and precious moment in life.
The enlightened understand that every moment in life is precious for every individual in life.

Knowledge shows that man chooses the hour and the place for an appointment. Having agreed these details for the person or the event concerned, he or she has the shape of the forthcoming day or week arranged. He thus takes on, without question, the responsibility for his own participation precisely. He is unable, however, to predict or arrange for unexpected interruptions which thwart what has been set. The white rabbit suddenly looked at his large timepiece and exclaimed: ‘‘I’m late, I‘m late for a very important date. No time to say: Hallo, good-bye. I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!’’ If ‘late’ were real, every moment between the appointed time and the arrival time would be redundant. The wise, however, reveal that every moment in life is precise. The wise do not take any moment in life for granted. Understanding this is enlightenment.
