How strange it is that the more I experience time, the less I understand it.

The lack of awareness I have staked in clock-time is nearly frightening.

Staying up until 7 am, curiously realizing the sun is lighting up the earth again while I have been busy at work, is not out of the ordinary.

Despite the human construct of clock-time and keeping count of Earth’s motion in respect to the sun (which is indeed useful), the actual force of time is one of the most bizarre things I come into contact with everyday.

There is one lesson I have learned while moving through time: it is not something you should want to take for granted.

As we drift through time and space, life is always oscillating, changing, winding. There is only one point in the force of time where life can be touched at all: the present moment. The present moment and life are the same thing; they are one. Developing a habit of living life in awareness and gratitude of this moment unfolds a new realm of possibilities that often goes unrealized by the masses of man.

Let us not treat the present moment as if it were an obstacle to overcome. This is nothing short of insanity, if life is only reachable in the present.

Let us LIVE then, and be grateful!

“Always say ‘yes’ to the present moment… Surrender to what is. Say ‘yes’ to life – and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.” -Eckhart Tolle

  1. I think that really only those who regularly practice meditation can even begin to appreciate the reality of “time” itself. Put succinctly, those who are our elders don’t really have any idea what they are doing, although they may try to give the impression that they do. As I’ve aged, I’ve become quite disrespectful of my elders, because when I was younger I used to look up to them as if they were knowledgeable and competent, when the truth was, they rarely are.
