“Don’t waste your time or time will waste you.”
Time is wobbly and sticky. Sometimes its slippery and swift. The dimensions of time morph within the structure of the matter it inhabits. Strange how a concept can be stretched out like spaghetti; molded like a tangible object. Time is, however a man-made concept so it makes sense. Certain emotions can change our perception of time. As the dimensions of an individual consciousness shifts, as does the shape of its behavior, mood, motivation, time management and perception of time.
Human measurements of time are only applicable to time spent on planet Earth. Time on other Planets is either shorter or longer relative to their orbits and distance from the sun. Black holes cause time and space to unravel completely.
The best way to observe time, in my opinion, is through one’s own subjective experience. Thinking about time as a whole only wastes more time and distracts one from spending it wisely. While it is important to learn from historical events, not repeat maladaptive behaviors and to plan ahead; thinking too far ahead or too far back for too long will inevitably eat away at the present moment and spoil what time one has left on Earth. Being present is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves and each other. Namaste.
