Time

It’s a strange thing. What is it that determines the rhythm to our routine. What is it that tells us to wake up and go to bed. What is it that tells us we ought to eat, study or take time for our family dinner?
It’s the constant ticking of a clock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

There are days when it feels like time doesn’t go by and where we want everything to be faster. More consumption, more excitement, more, more, more.
There are days when we feel like we’re running out of time. Like time was sand and it gushes through our hands, no matter how tight we try to hold it together.
And there are moments when time stands still when the clock stops to tick for a bit, while we watch the most beautiful sunset, or kiss the person we love.

Time is a strange thing.
But the question is never about the clock, the question is always about our perception. We can not influence time going by, we can just try to be in the exact moment and appreciate it for it will never come back. The only thing that stays with us forever is the memory of the past, often romanticized, often misty-eyed.
So lets all just take a moment of silence, a moment of pure being, a moment of perfection, where we worship ourselves, our surrounding and the exact situation we’re in. Feel which emotions are arising, when you’re really there, without any goal or attempt to be anywhere else. Don’t wait for the perfect moment to catch that freedom of simply being by accident, create that moment for yourself and manifest that feeling of peace and love deep down in your heart.
