Time only exist in our mind!!!
Everything happens now…
We can only be in the now.
Nothing is there to come and nothing past.
But an eternal now does always last. Abraham Cowley.
This is exact how it is, in our mind exist past and future; in reality, it doesn’t exist.
Time has only a relative existence! Carlyle
When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, you think it is only a minute. When you sit on a hot stove for a minute, you think it is two hours.
Time is relative and so not real…. Albert Einstein
For instance when we dream, we think that we have dreamed for hours, in reality, we have dreamed only for seconds.
If we live in our mind, we are missing that moment that happens now… and so we miss our life.
If we are living total in the here and now, then we are relaxed, or we are in the flow…there is no space for thinking… there is no time, only this moment nothing more … Life starts to become beautiful. And for that is Meditation. Meditation is connecting with the divine/God/Allah, the mind is calming down without forcing/pushing, and then we are in the here and now…
If we are in the flow, then only this moment is important for us.
What is to be in the flow? If we are relaxed and concentrate on what we are doing… our doing will happen by itself….
The Chinese Proverb: Wu Wei: To do without doing, … explains the flow.
For instance, 80% of the complicated surgery are happening in the flow for the whole team! All great artists like the musicians, painters are in the flow when they create, the same is true for sport…. For instance when I was skiing a very difficult ski piste at high speed… I had to be in the flow, – one thought or fear could cause that I would fall (no time for thinking.
If we are total emerged in the flow, like my example with skiing … then we are in the here and now,- we are timeless. Or when I write this blog, I am in the flow, I let the words come, without thinking or forcing.
For what is then time?
To measure a movement.
If we relax and think more slowly… the time slows down…
And that is wonderful, to become timeless…
We have just to go out of our head… to become timeless, to enjoy this moment.
What is the most precious moment in our life?
