Time waits for no man

“The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.” — Kahlil Gibran

Time is our nemesis. Often, it completely ruins our life: “If only I had more time”.

But what if we didn’t see time through the lens of clock time?

Imagine it.

No clocks.

No way of keeping track of the days, months or years.

Yes, we would see things change and get a sense of the time of year, but we wouldn’t be compelled to be on time.

I know what you’re thinking — “Don’t be ridiculous” — but, just once in a while, we need to find a space to bathe in the moment, to find a place where time stops.

For me, nature, in all its resplendent glory, is still the best antidote to our always on society. And it’s not just our activity bias, it’s our incessant need to measure success by how much we get done. If life should be about anything, it should be about slowing down, and having the opportunity to experience more of what makes us and the world whole.

Whatever your circumstances, it’s important not to be always at the mercy of time, for if you are, you may find that it’s over before it’s even begun.
