Kairos, youngest son of Zeus, known as the god of Opportunity, is depicted with wings on his feet and shoulders. His head is bald with only a lock of hair on his forehead. That is why it’s said that only those who confront him can seize him, not those who chase him.
Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment, the supreme moment. The ancient Greeks had two words for time: Kronos and Kairos. While Kronos is quantitative, Kairos has a qualitative nature.
Kronos refers to chronological, linear time, the time we live daily measured in hours and minutes.
Kairos, on the other hand, refers not to the time on the clock but to the time we feel. It refers to a period of time rendered to be “quality time”. It measures the quality and value of time. It allows us to be in the moment when time gently flows. One can never catch up with Kairos time; rather one participates with it. These are the moments that nourish our souls.
Does Kairos apply to people living in great cities where we run without stopping to breathe?
Yet, when we take notice and stop for a moment, time can also stop. It is all in our hands, isn’t it?
Remember Kairos time and know the value of the moment….
Live the moment…
Enjoy your time…
